"The MSTC program was a significant game-changer for me. I retired out of the Navy with a solid grounding in risk assessment, operations, and execution—both at the tactical and strategic level—but quickly realized I did not have the vocabulary and foundation that my civilian counterparts had regarding how the corporate side functions.

The MSTC program was a perfect bridge to creating that foundation. The conversations, questions, and concepts that I partake in today would absolutely not have been possible without the focused, rigorous curriculum that The University of Texas McCombs School of Business assembled in the MSTC program."

Is an MSTC degree the right fit for you? Students choose the Texas MSTC Program because:

“It’s a technology-focused alternative to a traditional business degree.”
“The program’s proprietary QuickLooks® methodology is the best validation tool for evaluating new IT initiatives.”
“I wanted to work full-time while going to school.”
“The Army gave me experience with the latest technology, but I needed to learn the language of the business world.”
“The critical skills and processes taught me to analyze opportunities and guide the development of new products.”
“We learned the latest business strategies from leaders in the industry.”

Stay on Budget

Our military students have been highly successful in getting the majority of costs associated with the Texas MSTC Program covered by one of the following options:

The Best OptionThe Post 9-11 GI Bill, available to service members who have served in the active military since September 11, 2001, will cover the majority of the costs. With nine course hours per semester, students qualify for full-time status, and many also qualify for a housing allowance.
Texas Military WaiverAs the Texas MSTC Program is not eligible for the Hazlewood Act, we offer the Texas Military Waiver as an equivalent program. It is available only to those service members who qualify for Hazelwood. This will cover approximately 50% of the costs.
Federal Tuition AssistanceThis program pays up to $4,000 per fiscal year towards tuition.

Other assistance is available, and some benefits can be used in conjunction with each other.
