Company Field Trip

The CFT program gathers top McCombs students and offers them the chance to visit companies across the nation that are the respective leaders in their industry. Past CFTs have gone to New York City, Houston, Dallas, Seattle, and San Francisco. In these cities, students have visited companies such as RBC, Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, Bain & Company, Ernst & Young, Google, Evercore, and McKinsey & Company. This trip is a great way to learn about business outside of Austin. These visits usually provide students with a tour, lunch, a panel of current employers, Q&A sessions, and one-on-one networking opportunities. CFTs occur through the academic year and students must apply for each trip.

Benefits of attending CFT

  • Firsthand experience with major companies
  • Network with recruiters and other students

Dallas

The Dallas CFT focuses on management consulting. It targets the most prestigious companies such as Bain, BCG, Deloitte, and McKinsey & Company. This is one of our consistent trips that occurs every fall. During the visit, representatives make a short presentation about their company. This is followed by a Q&A session, a tour of the office, and a chance to network with employees. Each company visit lasts around 2 hours, which allows students the opportunity to understand the firm's corporate culture and business practices.

Beyond the company visits, this trip is a great way to experience the fast-paced culture of NYC. Previously, we have visited Goldman Sachs, RBC, J.P. Morgan, Evercore, Greenhill, and Google. We visit New York every year and take approximately thirty students on the trip.
