The Power of Purple – How’s Your Network?


Making the decision to pursue an MBA can be equal parts excitement and trepidation. Moreover, once it's been made, another crucial choice looms — which programs will you apply to? Those of us who work at TCU’s Neeley School of Business fully understand that it can be difficult to know which school is right for you. That's why we're passionate about helping prospective students determine which program will make the most positive difference for them, both personally and professionally.

One of the deciding factors in choosing a business program is a school’s network. According to the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC), 48 percent of MBA applicants cited a robust network as a reason to attend an MBA program.

Your MBA is much more than a credential you can add to your resume. By pursuing your degree, you are joining a vibrant, supportive community that is committed to seeing all of its members achieve success.

Strength in Numbers

TCU’s “Power of Purple” network isn't just one of our many assets. The personal and professional connections our network offers separate us from the competition. At TCU Neeley, we keep our program small to foster relationships. Those relationships form the backbone of our extremely strong, close-knit network, one that’s both wide and deep and which consists of faculty, students, alumni and staff.

The members of this powerful network are all highly engaged. They believe in the shared value of a Neeley education and play a role in helping students reach their goals. Whatever your personal background, level of professional experience or career aspirations, TCU MBA is committed to your success.
