The MBA program at McCombs does not require the student to choose a specific concentration. It emphasizes teamwork and communication skills as the school believes in practical learning gained through actual experience.
Despite its high rating, the school is not considered very popular. Due to this fact, applicants are encouraged to examine what it has to offer as there is a bigger chance of getting accepted. Before submitting the application, it is important to research the school and show the knowledge collected about it in the essays written. The tuition, compared with other schools, is relatively high for the program’s rank.
The school’s alumni include the following prominent individuals, with current or past positions in parentheses: Donald Evans (former US Secretary of Commerce), Gary Kelly (CEO of Southwest Airlines), William Johnson (CEO of Heinz) and James Mulva (CEO of ConocoPhillips).
