  • Our Mission

Our Foundation

Academic Achievement & Professional Development

Texas MPA students seek excellence both in the classroom and in the workplace. Academic Achievement entails devotion to studying, research, and discipline, knowing that skills and habits learned at the University of Texas will be carried over post-graduation. Professional Development encompasses both nuance and ethics. Successful professionals have great interpersonal skills, panache and ambition. Successful professionals also maintain their integrity and do not allow their desires to overcome their ethics.

Service to the Community

Texas MPA students are leaders in the McCombs School of Business and the University of Texas, and they will continue to be leaders in the professional sphere. Because of this, it is imperative that MPA students be proactive, set the example, and take the lead in giving back to the community. By utilizing our roles as leaders and taking the initiative, we strive to help others by the giving back with our time and talents.

Social Engagement

The Texas MPA Program is vigorous, and as students progress through it, lifelong bonds are formed. As students strive for academic achievement, professional development, and service opportunities, an anticipated outcome is a vibrant community among MPA students. The camaraderie that is formed through these experiences contributes to student life and will enhance the professional world after graduation.
