    Study Teams

    Within your cohort, you’ll be matched up with a Study Team of 4 to 6 other students in your first year, each of whom bring different backgrounds and strengths to the group. You’ll work together and learn from each other as you tackle class assignments and business challenges.

Clubs & Organizations

Student-led clubs and organizations give you the opportunity to build your network, expand your leadership skills, learn about a new career path, and make an impact on your classmates. Learn about the current Evening MBA Clubs & Organizations below.

Consulting Club

The Consulting Club’s mission is to connect and support classmates who share an interest in consulting careers (a student does not have to be currently employed as a consultant to join). It provides a platform for understanding the consulting career lifestyle through panel discussions and the alumni network within management consulting firms. The group also hosts company info sessions and provides opportunities for case interview preparation.

Graduate Business Council

The Graduate Business Council (GBC) provides a forum for student leaders to work directly with program leadership to oversee the development, improvement, and maintenance of a strong sense of community and pride within the Evening MBA program. Additionally, the GBC serves to promote diversity and inclusivity within the Texas MBA programs. The GBC should cultivate the values of community, philanthropy, and legacy. The GBC is the student government for all students enrolled in the Evening MBA program.

Graduate Women in Business

Graduate Women in Business (GWiB) strives to provide an atmosphere conducive to the professional and personal development of its members. GWIB's goals include: improving the visibility of women in the McCombs School of Business, offering career development resources to its members, providing opportunities for its members to enhance the skills they need to remain competitive in the marketplace, connecting members to news stories and articles related to women's issues in the workplace, acting as an informational resource for prospective McCombs students, and promoting a spirit of camaraderie among our members and women in the business community in a variety of social settings and events.

McCombs Ambassador Committee

The McCombs Ambassador Committee (MAC) plays a vital role in providing the admissions staff with a student perspective on the MBA admissions process.MAC members participate in many aspects of MBA admissions including planning and attending recruiting events and serving as a point of contact for prospective applicants. As current students who were recently in your shoes, MAC members are a source of insight into the program for you as a prospective student, and a source of constant feedback for our admissions office to ensure we are addressing your needs as potential applicants and future Texas McCombs MBAs.
