The McCombs Leadership Program

Student Teamwork

The McCombs Leadership Program enables you to fine tune valuable leadership skills and build the connection between business and social impact.

The Leadership Program is a two-year program designed to promote your growth as a leader and to get you thinking about what kind of impact you want to make in the communities that surround you, without adding extra time to your degree. In many cases, you can complete the program by participating in on-campus activities, many of which you would have already wanted to be involved in! We'll help you stand out and know yourself as a change agent and leader. You will graduate from the program with an ability to demonstrate your skills and commitment to future employers and graduate schools.

Upcoming Events

We have 35+ McCombs Affiliated Student Organizations that work closely with our BBA Student Life team to bring our current students opportunities for engagement, community building, leadership and professional development. Our organizations host over 150+ events in an academic year! Check out a sample of what events are currently being hosted by our organizations on at McCombs for BBA students!
