The Mays MasterCast is the flagship podcast of Mays Business School at Texas A&M University. We share insights into how business and business school works while sharing our culture and lives with listeners. Our guests include current students, professors, alumni, and friends of the university who have distinguished themselves in the business world. In every episode, our hope is to find counter-intuitive insight, vulnerability, and humor. Our goal is to be the world’s premier business school podcast.
