McCombs offers a 2 year trans-elite MBA program as well as several PT and executive programs. With 260 incoming students each year, this is a medium-sized FT program for this cluster.
Austin is a relatively inexpensive metro area, with the overall cost of living less than half that of NYC, and the cost for housing is less than a quarter of the price of NYC.
The GPA and GMAT score distributions are centered near 3.4 and 670 respectively.
Electives begin in the second semester. The core consists of the typical courses including Statistics, Financial Accounting, Finance, Micro and Macroeconomics, Operations, Marketing, IT, Strategy, Managerial Accounting, and a selective requirement of one of three Human Management courses.
Virtually all of the major firms recruit at McCombs, notably such companies as McKinsey, BCG, Bain, ML, LB, MS, and JPM.
Note that since the majority of students remain in the Southwest of the US, the salaries appear deceptively low relative to salaries in New York or San Francisco/San Jose.
Notable companies headed by Texas-Austin graduates include ConocoPhilips, Temple-Inland, Equity Office Properties, Pactiv, Unocal (the CEO is a PhD in geology), and Southwest (the CEO has a degree in law).
