"I chose to apply to the McCombs School of Business Executive MBA Program for several reasons, but mainly for the opportunity to learn at a world class university in a setting that maximizes the strength and diversity of the non-traditional students, experienced and renowned faculty, professional and helpful staff, and a strong and accessible alumni network. And, of course, because it's great to be a Longhorn!"

“My dad has always emphasized that if you don’t keep learning you fall behind the curve. And yes, you might argue that reading newspapers and watching the news will keep you current; but I’m not referring to just learning the buzz words. Through the Executive MBA you will understand what those buzz words actually mean, why they exist and when it’s the right time to use them. You will learn what your classmates are doing to solve issues similar to those that might be keeping you up at night in your current job or you might be able to find a group of people to bounce ideas off of.”
