Graduate Bootcamp

A graduate business education represents a substantial investment of your time, money and energy. It represents a commitment to your future. In the same way, the faculty and staff of the McCoy College of Business are committed to providing you an exceptional educational experience, both in the classroom and through co-curricular programs and activities.

To help ensure you get off to a fantastic start in graduate school all incoming McCoy graduate students are required to attend the McCoy Graduate Bootcamp.

Bootcamp is held before classes begin in both the fall and spring semesters, either the Saturday immediately prior to the start of classes or one week prior (we'll let you know well in advance). This is a mandatory event so if you plan on applying, have applied, or have been accepted it is imperative that you make plans to attend.

Don't worry–there aren't any pushups or group runs! Instead, you'll meet your fellow McCoy graduate students, participate in team-building activities, and learn the details and best-practices of your graduate program. You'll also have the opportunity to hear from McCoy graduate faculty and McCoy alumni, and have a chance to ask them questions about the program and their career paths.
