10 Year Reunion Celebration

updated on August 31, 2023

The UT Economics MA program welcomed its first cohort of 36 students in Summer 2013. Since then, we have been home to almost 500 alumni and current students. To celebrate all their accomplishments, we are planning a 10 Year Reunion on September 29-30, 2023. On Friday, alumni will meet with current students in multiple panel sessions – discussing their current research and talking about the ways their degrees have served them in the public and private sectors. Then on Saturday, we’ll gather for a tailgate before Texas Longhorn football takes on the University of Kansas Jayhawks in one of the last Big 12 conference games before UT leaves for the SEC.
