Unique educational experiences that challenge our MBAs to apply their learning are built in to the program - ensuring that our graduates are able to immediately apply the skills and tactics learned in the classroom.
By keeping admission standards high and class sizes small, we are able to ensure that our students receive personal attention in every aspect of their MBA experience. By limiting our program to two cohorts of approximately 40 students each, our program creates a learning environment that encourages dynamic interaction between students and the accomplished faculty that teach in the MBA program. This small class size also allows for one-on-one attention from program staff and the dedicated professionals in our Graduate Business Career Services office.
Beyond earning an MBA from Mays, our graduates benefit from an expansive network of MBA graduates, and from the international power of the Texas A&M University “Aggie Network.”
