Celebrating 100 Years of Texas BBA

This year marks the centennial celebration of UT's first graduating class to earn a business degree.  For the past century, the Texas way has been to show students how to think big and earn the rights of leadership with smarts and hard work.

The McCombs School of Business is now ranked among the nation’s Top 10 business schools, outranking nearly every private school.  We are number one in accounting, top 10 in seven other majors, and are thriving in the heart of Austin, the number one city for tech startups, innovation, and STEM job growth.
