Culture, Cohorts, and Classmates

Students working in a small group


The collaborative and dynamic culture of the Executive MBA Program is by design. We’re committed to delivering you a world-class business education that is grounded in open dialogue and teamwork. As your career grows and evolves, you’ll be equipped with an array of diverse perspectives and insights.


Before your first day, you will be carefully placed into a cohort—i.e., a team of your classmates with whom you’ll navigate your first year. You’ll study, challenge, and support each other throughout. To ensure you get the most out of your cohort experience, we will ensure each cohort represents a variety of cultural professional, and geographic backgrounds.

Study Groups

You’ll also be teamed up with 4-6 classmates in your first year. 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. You’ll challenge yourself and each other—and the results will amaze.

City and Campus

The Wisdom of Working

You’re here because you want more for your career. So do we. And that’s why we’ve designed your Texas MBA experience to have an immediate impact on your current job. In class, you’ll learn practical, proven tactics for solving the very same challenges you encounter everyday in the office. And in the office, you’ll witness firsthand the real-world impact of a world-class business education.

A Powerful Alumni Network

One of the greatest assets of the Executive MBA Program is the reputation of the Tecnológico de Monterrey and The University of Texas at Austin brands, which makes your MBA degree recognizable around the world. From the moment you enter the program, you become part of both of these highly regarded universities, giving you access to two extensive alumni networks, and multiplying your resources to make connections across the globe.
