We are so proud to announce that McCoy MBA student Lisa Taylor is headed to Rice University next month to compete in their annual Business Plan Competition! . Lisa was asked to join a team which includes Texas State Ph.D. and MFA students. Their team was selected from more than 500 other university teams to be one of 42 finalists. They will present in Houston in front of 250 judges which include venture capitalists and other investors for more than $1 million in prize money. You can read more about the competition here:

and more about the company–SioTeX–here:

We know McCoy MBA students are doing wonderful things, both within the program and in industry, but to see Texas State alongside schools like Yale, Harvard, and MIT really demonstrates  the caliber of the people who choose the McCoy MBA program for their graduate business education. We wish Lisa and the SioTeX team all the best at the Rice competition.
