Hands-on experience

At McCombs School of Business, MBA students interested in clean energy sector supplement classroom learning with hands-on experience through mini-projects with companies, CleanTech Fellows program and working with cleantech startups under Texas Venture Labs and Austin Technology Incubator.

MBA+ Projects

Under the MBA+ leadership program, MBA students engage with companies on small consulting assignments, which provides a real-world platform to apply academic knowledge.

CleanTech Fellows

The CleanTech Fellowship is a selective leadership program that offers exceptional Texas MBA students the opportunity to deepen industry knowledge through hands on experiences in the clean tech world. Because each fellow sources his/her internship, the program can be tailored to anyone’s specific interests: energy, buildings, transportation, or agriculture. Once selected, each CleanTech fellow spends 10-15 hours per week working with a company of their choosing and periodically meeting with the other fellows to check in, attend speaker series, and discuss developments in the industry. Students earn credit for the part-time internship, which lasts for the second semester of the first year. The experience offers a great opportunity to build relationships with industry experts and growing companies. The CleanTech Fellows program is connected to the CleanTech Group.
