Explore Your Major and Career Paths
Career Course: McCombs focuses on helping you achieve your career goals right from the start. While many institutions wait to put you in contact with their Career Services department, one of your very first McCombs classes will be taught by a Career Coaching professional. During this course, you’ll learn employer trends, examine what skills are in demand and become familiar with each of the majors we offer. You’ll also develop your resume, learn to write a cover letter and—best of all—receive a Mock Interview in preparation for recruiting.
Required Internship: All BBA students complete an internship before they graduate. Not only are internships a great way to gain valuable work experience and test the waters in an industry of your choosing, they can be an excellent opportunity to meet new people and expand your network.
Major Specific Career Coaching
: Our major specific Career Coaches meet one-on-one with students to discuss options and polish job search and interview strategies. Career Coaches specific to your major are a key factor in helping Mc
Combs students successfully land internships and full-time jobs.
As a McCombs undergrad, you can also take advantage of our Peer Coaching program where you can talk about internships, career paths, and recruiting with a student who’s already been through the process.
Career Shadowing Program
: The Career Shadowing Program gives students a first-hand glimpse of company culture, function, and a day-in-the-life of a working professional.
