The vision of the Mays MasterCast is to connect prospective members to our Mays community by painting the picture of Aggieland through different voices and perspectives. The “different voices and perspectives” have come from inspiring individuals of Texas A&M University, each telling a new story of their personal, professional, and educational experiences. While we still want to focus on the unique lives of our guests, we want our guests to embody the Masters and MBA Programs that Mays has to offer. Whether they teach a graduate level course, are head of a department, current student, or have graduated, we want to capture potential Mays Business School Masters students and keep them in the realm of what is Mays Business School.

Olivia Morrison, Assistant Director of the Executive MBA Program, went from working front desk to being an advisor overnight. On this episode of MasterCast, Olivia examines the Executive MBA program that is based in the city center campus in Houston, Texas, and what the typical cohorts consist of. This program is designed to allow full time workers to simultaneously be full time students through Texas A&M. This might seem overwhelming, however, the program is very flexible with each student's unique needs. She also explains how stepping into a job that you might not believe you are qualified for, can help you grow in confidence and allow you to stretch your abilities. She also touches on what it is like to adjust coming from the small college in Dayton, Tennessee, all the way to the large campus of Texas A&M.
Originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, Olivia Morrison joined Mays Business School in August 2018 as an administrative coordinator in the Graduate Programs Office. In the summer of 2019, she transitioned to the Assistant Program Director role for the Executive MBA program. Holding both a bachelor’s in business & an MBA from Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee, Olivia is passionate about business higher education and supporting students as they work to achieve their academic goals and realize all the opportunities that an MBA from Texas A&M can afford them.
