McCoy 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 inside 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 MBA, MAcy, MSAIT, MSHRM and MSMRA students are required to attend the McCoy Graduate Bootcamp event.

Bootcamp is held on Saturday before classes begin in both the fall and spring semesters, either the weekend 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 block out the date.

Don't worry–there aren't any pushups or group runs. Instead, expect a great day where you'll meet your fellow McCoy graduate students, learn about group dynamics, and participate in team-building activities. You'll also hear from graduate faculty and a panel of McCoy graduates and have a chance to ask them questions about the program and their career path. Lunch and a light breakfast are provided, and we'll wrap up the day with an off-site social sponsored by the McCoy Graduate Student Association.
