The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Ally+ Business Student Association (GBSA) was established in 2007 by a group of UT students and employees of leading firms looking to create a group of open-minded, young professionals whose goals aligned with promoting workplace equality for all.
In 2015, the GLBTQA+ Business Student Association took a two-year hiatus. Beginning in 2017, our organization was re-established in order to bring back LGTBQ+ visibility to the McCombs School of Business. Starting in 2018, GLBTQA+ Business Student Association faced a rebrand, a refreshed officer team, and new mission in promote workplace equality and representation of the GLBTQA+ community in corporate settings.
In November of 2019, the GLBTQA+ Business Student Association heard from our fellow longhorns that the GLBTQA+ acronym was outdated. We renamed to Queer Business Student Association to be more inclusive.
