Where Leadership is Earnedâ„¢

McCombs mission statementOne of the largest and most distinguished business schools in the country, the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin is dedicated to educating the business leaders of tomorrow while creating knowledge for industry and society. Rankings tell only part of the story of what makes McCombs so great, but it’s a good beginning. We’re one of the few schools in the country to receive top marks in nearly all the business specialty areas ranked annually by U.S. News & World Report—at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

McCombs educates more than 6,000 undergraduate, MBA, MPA and Ph.D. students each year, creating one of the largest cumulative impacts of any business school in the world. About 2,000 professionals also participate each year in custom programs designed for working executives and their firms. These programs are held in our first-class AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center.

The McCombs School of Business is aligned with the university's initiative to pursue a new vision for higher education, while educating leaders who will create value for society. Our vision is to become one of the most prominent business schools in the world; in the coming years, our strategic plan will focus on seven initiatives to reach our goal.
