Alumni Directory 

What is the policy for using the Alumni Directory?

  • Alumni may only network with other alumni if they have also allowed some of their contact information to be displayed to alumni.
  • The network is to be used for social and business contacts, but not sales leads! We are a valuable resource to one another, please respect that.
  • Networking is a privilege and access will be restricted if necessary.
  • We promise to maintain the data, and you must promise to use it and keep your information current!

Career Services

What career services are available for alumni?

Visit Alumni Career Resources to learn about the tools available to you as a McCombs graduate, including the McCombs Job Board, Access UT and the Alumni Directory. Alumni are welcome to use the Perry-Castañeda Library for research or the physical resources in our career services office.

Can alumni take advantage of on-campus recruiting? 

Unfortunately we are not able to make our on-campus recruiting positions available to alumni. All access to campus recruiting terminates once you have left the program. We encourage all companies to post alumni positions on the McCombs Job Board. Many companies simultaneously post positions on the job board and our on-campus recruiting system.

How can I hire McCombs students and/or alumni?

Please post alumni positions to the McCombs Job Board. For more information about hiring students, visit Recruitment Services.

      Was I assigned a social security number when I was an international student at McCombs?

      UT requires students to have a social security number, so you would have received a temporary social security number shortly after you matriculated. If you lived in the US for a significant length of time, you were most likely assigned a permanent social security number.

      To gain access to your social security number, contact the national Social Security Office.

      Can I use the alumni network to promote my political campaign?

      The McCombs School and the McCombs Alumni Network are prohibited from any involvement in the promotion of political candidates. If we were to endorse one candidate, the university requires that we include all candidates.

      Where can I purchase McCombs merchandise?

      You can purchase McCombs t-shirts and other merchandise at McCombs signature events such as the Alumni Barbecue and the Annual Alumni Business Conference.

      Where can I learn about rankings?

      The most recent McCombs School rankings are posted online. Read analyses of our rankings on McCombs TODAY. To learn about business school rankings in general, view our Rankings FAQ.
