On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) is a spectrum of
services that assists employers with recruiting
current McCombs students for roles in their
organizations. OCR is a free service provided
by the Recruitment Services department
within McCombs Career Services. A full-service
OCR process (posting, screening, and interview-
ing) takes five to six weeks from start to finish
and can include the following:
  •	 Job posting
  •	 Candidate screening (based on degree
     requirements and graduation time frames)
  •	 Online resume collections
  •	 Employer “pre-selection” of
     interview candidates
  •	 Scheduling of on-campus interviews in
     our facilities
See page 10 for details about scheduling
on-campus interviews.

Serving food at on-campus events requires
previous authorization by the University’s
Environmental Health and Safety Office
and will require a completed catering form,
supplied by your Recruitment Support
Specialist. Because of this, you may want
to avoid complicated menus. Catering
is coordinated directly with your
chosen vendor.

Each UTC classroom is equipped with built-in
computer data (LCD) projectors and screens,
CD/DVD/VCR players, overhead projectors,
and Internet data ports for presentations
that can be controlled via a laptop computer.
Please bring your own laptop or request
to check out one of the center’s laptops
(requires a one-week prior notice). If you are
using a UTC room, a student worker will
assist you with your AV equipment.

If you are hosting your information session at
the UTC, you may ship presentation materials
to the McCombs School of Business. No
more than two boxes per employer
may be shipped for any given event
due to storage space constraints.
Materials should be sent a week prior
to the session. Mark each box with
your Recruitment Support Specialist’s
name and presentation date. Please
let your Recruitment Support Special-
ist know to expect your materials.
Materials will be delivered to your classroom
the night of your event.

Master in professional Accounting (MpA)

The Master in Professional Accounting (MPA) program at the McCombs School of Business has
been widely recognized as one of the leading graduate accounting programs in the United States.
Our program attracts academically talented, hard working, and ambitious students. McCombs’
outstanding faculty includes some of the world’s top researchers. These award-winning educators
challenge our students with a leading-edge curriculum. Our exceptional graduates possess the
competence, sound judgment, and accounting proficiency that allow them to excel not
only in public accounting, but also in industry, nonprofits, government, financial services, and
consulting. Texas MPAs are equipped to make an immediate contribution to your organization.

There are two approaches to the MpA degree:
 •	 The traditional approach to the MPA is a 12- to 18-month graduate program that welcomes
    students with undergraduate degrees in any field. Students begin the program in the
    summer or fall, and graduate the following spring, summer, or fall.
 •	 The integrated approach to the MPA enables students beyond their sophomore year to
    earn the Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) and Master in Professional Accounting
    (MPA) degrees concurrently.
