Thinking Independently Together
Your MBA is so much more than a graduate degree. It’s an experience—a once-in-a-lifetime journey that begins in Austin and moves across the globe.
During your journey, you’ll learn and work alongside classmates from every imaginable background—their unique perspectives pairing with yours to create true innovation. You’ll take classes in cutting-edge facilities. You’ll be challenged and inspired by some of the finest students in the world. You’ll learn directly from the most distinguished faculty. And you’ll do it all in Austin, Texas—America’s #1 city for innovation and entrepreneurship.
Culture, Cohorts, and Classmates
The collaborative and dynamic culture of the MBA Program at Texas McCombs is by design. We’re committed to delivering you a world-class business education that is grounded in open dialogue and teamwork. When you eventually enter your new career, you’ll be equipped with an array of diverse perspectives and insights.
Upon arrival on campus, you’ll be carefully placed into a cohort—your MBA peers with whom you’ll navigate your first year’s core curriculum. To ensure you get the most out of your cohort experience, each one represents a wide variety of cultures, business concentrations, backgrounds, and locations.
You’ll also be teamed up with 4-6 classmates for your core classes. Your study group will tackle a series of business challenges and problem-solving experiences. Like the cohort system, you’ll be placed into a study group that comprises an array of backgrounds, interests, and ambitions.
