Your Future Starts Here

The diversity of classes, faculty, students, and ideas fostered at Texas McCombs help prepare our students to work and lead anywhere in the world. Choose between three different approaches to take your career to the next level.


  • Traditional MPA

    Our one-year traditional MPA is open to both UT and non-UT students who will have earned a bachelor's degree (in any academic discipline) before starting the MPA program. No work experience is required.
  • MPA Bridge

    Our new MPA Bridge program is a perfect fit for current UT undergraduates (both McCombs and non-McCombs students) who would like to pursue an MPA degree along with their non-accounting bachelor's degree. Get a head start on MPA courses during your senior year.
  • Integrated MPA

    The integrated MPA program is designed for current Texas McCombs undergraduates who are interested in earning a BBA degree in accounting and an MPA degree. You will save both time and money by taking several graduate level courses at undergraduate tuition rates.
MPA Student Experience
Having a background in accounting, specifically an MPA degree, allows me to immediately have credibility when I meet with new clients or my current client base and I’m extremely appreciative for that.
