To commemorate Businessweek’s 2014 ranking of the top undergraduate business programs, Forster Thomas is profiling the top ten. Jumping three spots to #6 this year – UT Austin McCombs.

By Ben Feuer

Outstanding career center

Powerful alumni include the CEOs of ConocoPhillips and Southwest Airlines

HOW TO GO:

Thanks to an unusually well-organized admissions website, getting the information you need is easy.

FRESHMEN

Freshmen apply through the usual ApplyTexas website – unless they are interested in the Business Honors program, no separate application is required. Letters of recommendation are optional, and UT Austin does NOT conduct interviews for candidates applying to the McCombs School of Business.

TRANSFERS
