McCombs School of Business FIGs

FIGs in the McCombs School of Business offer a unique opportunity for business freshmen to connect with their classmates, professionals, instructors, and the university community. Through participation in a weekly seminar, McCombs students will explore resources, majors, and organizations that are available to them. Additionally, FIGs will discuss topics relevant to all new students: time management, study skills, careers, major exploration, and fun things to do in Austin. Each of our FIGs feature required courses that will satisfy undergraduate degree requirements for the business majors. For additional information, contact The McCombs Undergraduate Programs Office 512-471-0690.
