#MBAchicTakeover – Laura Gallardo on her time at Texas McCombs

Laura Gallardo Texas McCombs Working Professional MBA

Texas McCombs Working Professional MBA candidate Laura Gallardo returned for her second #MBAchicTakeover during her capstone presentation weekend. She brought us along to Rowling Hall for classes and final group presentations and shared some graduation festivities as they kicked off. Two years ago she shared a weekend-in-the-life in the University of Texas’ McCombs School of Business Working Professional MBA program. She offered a look into the experience and how she went about applying to the program — it’s a great way to learn more about her application process and what the program looks like.

In her second #MBAchicTakeover, Laura offered her reflections on what it was like to pursue her MBA right now. She shared what the investment in her education, career and self, means to her and the legacy she is building. If you’re wondering what the MBA offers on a more personal level, in addition to the education and networking you receive, don’t miss this.
