“It was an eye-opening experience and I learned a ton.” – Rick Rodriguez, Senior Integration Engineer, Ellucian

“This was an interactive and impressive snapshot into business management. I met and worked alongside some great connections, which led me to a consulting opportunity with a local non-profit. I was newer to Austin and looking to gain exposure to the Austin business community – I’m happy to say that I got it!” – Thu-Hong Nguyen, Recruiting Business Partner, Google

Mentors

Mentors are hand-selected from Austin’s rank of top executives and entrepreneurs. Mentors are highly skilled, highly knowledgeable masters of their craft and will serve as guiding forces and perspective-shifters throughout the program. Small teams of participants will be assigned to a mentor who will facilitate a group discussion and present a real business case that teams will collaborate to create a solution for throughout the duration of the program. Not only do participants gain insights into the mind of a top Austin professional, but they will also gain a deeper understanding of the executive’s leadership journey and what it takes to excel in a business career in Austin. Mentorship can last long after the Invited MBA program has drawn to a close. 

Alumni

Participants of the Invited MBA program automatically join an expansive, diverse alumni network of professionals from different walks of life. These are peer connections that have the potential to last a lifetime – and can even lead to a new business idea or job opportunity.
