It is pretty well known how great the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas is and now it can add another jewel to its crown with its intellectual capital being recognized for their research excellence. All this knowledge creation has been achieved in addition to giving a great learning experience for the students at the business school.
The faculty at McCombs have actually written as many as 229 articles in the 24 leading business journals that UT Dallas tracks over a period of five years. This is something that McCombs can be proud of in addition to boasting 103 CEOs in 500 of America’s largest firms between 1997 and 2006 coming in thirteenth on a list which has HBS, Wharton and Stanford at the top.
There is a lot of knowledge that is being created by McCombs and you can go ahead and check out some of it at TexasEnterprise.org, which is the business knowledge website. It is definitely worthwhile exploring as you will definitely benefit from the research and can use it to help your career or business. I particularly enjoyed the insights in ‘How Investors Make Decisions.’
The MBA program has also been recognized in some other rankings released this year and it also shows that MBA graduates make some of the highest salaries in the world. The MBA program boasts a three years post-MBA salary of $121,170 and it is higher than other MBA programs in the state of Texas like Rice, SMU and Texas A&M.
