Teen Marketing Wizards Rock UT’s McCombs Future Executive Academy

Every once in a while we get to do something so cool that there really are no words to describe it. Everything from awesome to mind-blowing to supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus simply does not do the job of describing the talented high school students we got to interact with at McCombs School of Business’ Future Executive Academy. 

These students from all over Texas stayed at the University of Texas last week and spent their precious summer hours studying not only business, but also a little about life. In between learning finance and management information systems, they also had time to play blazer tag and rock a marketing challenge sponsored by Aceable and BBVA Compass of Austin. 

We gave them a hypothetical budget of $10,000 to go wild with marketing Aceable to their peers. What they came up with was ridiculously good – CMOs around the world are shakin’ in their boots and we’re already implementing their ideas. We owe a big shout of to Team Danimals who took home the gold at the challenge.

Here are just a couple of pictures we snapped of the newest (and best) members of the Aceable family.


Special thanks to BBVA Compass, Dr. Stephen Walls and Charles Enriquez of McCombs School of Business for making this event possible and allowing us to participate!
