The Texas Evening MBA program offers a number of student-led organizations to further professional development, provide additional networking opportunities, and serve the broader community. Organizations centered on program enrichment, community service, entrepreneurship and consulting are just a few examples of existing groups serving the Evening MBA community. You are encouraged to explore these organizations, or even start your own group. This is an excellent way to develop and demonstrate leadership skills and make connections with classmates and industry leaders. Below is a sample of some of the organizations that have been the most popular in past years.
Graduate Business Council
The GBC serves as the student government for all students in the Texas Evening MBA program. Representatives to the GBC are elected by classmates and work directly with program administration to enhance the overall student experience. GBC representatives serve on a number of standing committees and organize and actively promote community service opportunities, social events and program improvements.
McCombs Ambassador Committee
The McCombs Ambassador Committee (MAC) within the Evening MBA Program plays a vital role in providing the admissions staff with a student perspective on the MBA admissions process. MAC members participate in many aspects of MBA admissions including planning and attending recruiting events and serving as a point of contact for prospective applicants. As current students who were recently in your shoes, MAC members are a source of insight into the program for you as a prospective student, and a source of constant feedback for our admissions office to ensure we are addressing your needs as potential applicants and future Texas MBAs. To contact a current MAC member, please email TEMBA@mccombs.utexas.edu
Texas Consulting Club
The Texas Consulting Club's (TCC) mission is providing students with the resources, training, and connections to Mccombs staff, alumni, and current students with experience in consulting. TCC offers its members opportunities for case interview practice by providing practice materials and practice groups. Traditionally, first-year and second-year MBA students interested in pursuing a career in consulting make up the membership of this club. Workshops, seminars and mentoring transform this club's members into effective, and sought-after, TEMBA consultants.
Texas Evening Entrepreneurs
Texas Evening Entrepreneurs (TEE) is one of the oldest and most active student groups. TEE’s mission is dedicated to the creation, collaboration and dissemination of ideas and resources related to being an entrepreneur. The group facilitates the transfer of knowledge through workshops, guest speakers and articles. The organization also creates opportunities for hands-on entrepreneurial experience through MBA+ projects
and involvement with Texas Venture Labs competitions.
