Enhancing Student Learning Experiences
An exceptional business school is known not only for the caliber of its research, but also for its innovative teaching methods. The quality of our learning environment is a source of pride for the entire McCombs community, and we must build on that strength.
Ask our students about their favorite part of the McCombs experience, and invariably they cite the quality and accessibility of the faculty. This dynamic group of knowledge leaders is known for generating relevant business research with teaching that challenges and elevates.
We must invest in our educators and support their performance in the classroom, including resources for training and assessment of knowledge delivery, best practice sharing and access to the latest research in pedagogy.
We must continue to advance pioneering interdisciplinary programs like the Real Estate Finance and Investment Center and innovative case-based models like the Business Honors Program. In addition, we must leverage breakthrough technology tools that facilitate learning and integrate new media tools into everyday curriculum.
This commitment to teaching excellence will advance a dynamic and creative learning environment, increasing the competitive advantage of our school and our graduates.
Experiential Learning Opportunities
Our mission entails a commitment to continually improving the learning environments of our students. We are a leader in providing experiential learning opportunities for students, including the undergraduate Leadership Certificate Program, MBA Investment Fund, MPA Tax Practicum and international travel.
We must leverage this strength and continue to develop innovative curriculum that exposes students to real-world business challenges. Program and course design must prioritize experiential learning opportunities, allowing students to gain hands-on skills that translate immediately to the working world.
With your support, this commitment will dramatically improve our ability to recruit top students, support the highest performance of our faculty and ensure our graduates are prepared to thrive in a dynamic business environment.
