Throughout the year, MS students have the opportunity to participate in volunteer opportunities, philanthropic events, and other opportunities throughout the year. With events on campus like Girl Day, The Data Open, and numerous individual speakers, our students have multiple ways to learn both in and out of the classroom.

Student leadership opportunities will be available throughout the year. If you are interested in serving as a student leader, please contact Allison Wilden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Woven into the fabric of the Texas Master of Science Program is a commitment to a diversity of perspectives. From being a long-standing member of the Consortium for Graduate Studies in Management to participating in the first year of the Reaching Out LGBTQ fellowship program, McCombs continues to champion diversity in the business community. We know that collaboration drives everything we do, and we strive to develop students with mindsets that transcend geographic and cultural boundaries.
