The administration is so good and supportive that it is as important and valuable as any faculty department. Team members never responded to a request with "no." Worst case scenario: "There isn't precedent, but let's see what we can do!"
The best thing about McCombs is the hands-on, experiential learning you have through activities such as Marketing Labs, Fellows Programs, MBA+, and the active start-up and entrepreneurship culture. All of these aspects prepare you so well to further your career, and position you well for your internship or full-time job, whether changing your career or not.
The people at McCombs are great: outgoing, fun, easy-going, don't take themselves too seriously, motivated, caring, and adventurous.
The career services could be improved and the level of interaction with alumni.
My experience at Texas has far surpassed my expectations. Given the reputation and location of the school, McCombs has presented students with a wide breadth of real life business experiences, whether you are interested in finance, energy, or entrepreneurship. In addition to the range of experiences, the depth of support, knowledge, and involvement from the administration and staff is second to none.
There was a lack of dedicated, new facilities and equipment available to full-time MBA students. Many resources, including classrooms and group meeting spaces, are shared with other MBA and even undergraduate programs. Additionally, the program lacks an appropriate technology infrastructure for a 21st century MBA program.
Networking and socializing are overemphasized to the detriment of the academic experience.
The experiential learning programs that are provided are fantastic: MBA+, venture fellows, investment fund, and Texas Venture Labs. The size and reputation of these programs in the Texas community are unrivaled by other top MBA programs.
I would highly recommend attracting a higher proportion of women into the program.
The best thing about my Texas MBA program has been the entrepreneurial spirit and actions of my classmates. I have the opportunity to be around so many bright folks who are thinking about business in new and unique ways. There is an energy in Austin and in the program for trying and learning from new venture creations. It's an exciting, vibrant, and risk-tolerant community.
