COVID-19 UPDATE:  2020 Summer Programs Cancelled

All summer programs at the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin to be held in June have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and health of the UT community is our highest priority. The university is following guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Austin Public Health. We are coordinating with other local public health officials to gather and share the most up-to-date information. Thank you for your understanding as we all navigate this unprecedented time in our state.


The McCombs Summer High School Programs are free, six-day experiences focused on business and leadership that offer rising junior and senior high school students the chance to learn and interact with McCombs students, faculty, and corporate representatives. Outstanding African-American, Latino and Native American students, first-generation students, and students who have overcome social or economic hardship are strongly encouraged to apply. However, all students are welcome to apply. This is your chance to see what it's like to live and learn on campus before you graduate high school!
