Career Advising

Your career consultants are available throughout the year to provide professional guidance and insight. You’ll also pair up with a Peer Advisor—a second-year Texas MBA student who was at your stage of career planning just a year before.



As part of of the Texas MBA+ Leadership program, you’ll have access to communication and specialty coaches—i.e., seasoned experts who are ready to work with you one-on-one to refine your skills in communication, leadership, strategy, organizational culture, and much more.



Your first semester, you’ll take “BA 181 - Strategic Career Planning,” a class designed to identify and begin developing your professional goals. You’ll perform a self-assessment, practice interviewing techniques, build out your personal brand and social media networking strategies, and learn how to research career options.
