McCombs School of Business at University of Texas-Austin
“One of the interesting things about the MBA program is how integrated it is with the city of Austin,” says Tina Mabley, assistant dean of the full-time MBA program at UT-Austin McCombs. “There are many schools that are in major cities, but the University of Texas and the city have really grown up together so there is a nice symbiotic realtionship between the two. We have been the fastest growing city in the U.S. for the past four years. So students have incredible opportunity, whether it is serving on boards in the community, working with startups, mid-sized companies or Fortune 500 corporations. We really view Austin as a live laboratory that our students have access to, and we are creating a new building that is right on the edge of campus that puts us in that Venn-diagram overlap between the campus and the city.”
