Sixteen months are all that is required to gain an MBA from the Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas. The school also offers a wide variety of longer, more flexible options for MBA candidates who prefer a part-time program; these include self-paced evening and online degree plans as well as a two-year, cohort-based evening program. More experienced candidates can opt to pursue an executive version of the degree.

Full-Time and Professional MBA students are encouraged to customize their MBA experience by selecting up to two concentrations from more than 10 options, which range from accounting and finance to information systems and innovation and entrepreneurship. Students can choose from more than 100 electives to fulfill the 24-credit elective requirement. The remaining 29 credits are devoted to a core curriculum that covers business fundamentals, such as financial accounting, business economics, and marketing management.

Candidates in the Full-Time program follow a lock-step progression with a cohort of some 50-60 students. Jindhal Full-Time MBAs praise the small program size and the opportunities it presents to get to know each of their classmates on a personal level.

Texas students benefit from low tuition; in some cases, the school also provides out-of-state tuition waivers to nonresidents. Roughly 75% of the incoming class was awarded some form of scholarship based on merit. Last year’s class received an average award of more than $8,000.

UT Dallas MBA candidates benefit from the school’s location in the fourth largest metro area in the U.S. Dallas boasts 40% of the top Fortune 1000 companies and is home to high-profile corporations, such as ExxonMobil and Southwest Airlines.

The UT Dallas MBA: 1 Degree, 5 Formats

The Naveen Jindal School of Management at UT Dallas offers several nationally ranked MBA options that require 53 semester credit hours (29 hours of core classes with 24 hours of electives). MBA students can choose between the Full-Time (Cohort), Professional MBA Evening Cohort, Professional MBA Flex, Professional MBA Online or Executive Education programs.

Students in the Full-Time (Cohort), Professional MBA Evening Cohort and Professional MBA Flex programs can choose from many different concentrations and more than 200 electives. For those unable to attend on-campus classes, the Professional MBA Online program provides access to all the same core and most of the elective classes/concentration that are offered to students in the Professional MBA Program. All Full-Time and Professional MBA students are supported with customized MBA programming from our Jindal School Career Management Center.

Executive Education offers specially tailored programs for executives including the Executive MBA, the Global Leadership Executive MBA, the Executive MBA for Physicians and an Executive MBA with a concentration in Project Management.

Dual MS/MBA Degree Options 

If you are looking for both depth of knowledge in a fundamental management discipline and breadth of broader management leadership acumen, consider a joint MS/MBA degree. Earned separately, the two degrees would require 89 credit hours total—36 for an MS degree and 53 for an MBA—but the joint program allows students to earn both degrees with 63 credit hours total.

Scholarships and Financial Aid 

We recognize that graduate school is a commitment of your finances, as well as your mind and energy. Our tuition value is supported through a range of scholarships and financial aid opportunities. Each year, 75 percent of the Full-Time MBA Program students receive scholarship funds with the average award being valued at more than one third the cost of the program. See the webpages of the programs that interest you for more details, or visit the University’s Financial Aid web address for information.

An Ideal Location in a Vibrant Economy 

Dallas’ prime location in the Central time zone means travel to the East or West Coast is easy, and long-haul flight options from our two major airports makes regional, national and global destinations accessible for our students.

There’s plenty to do while you’re here, too. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is one of the nation’s largest urban areas, with shopping, entertainment venues, museums and art galleries, and places for outdoor running, biking, hiking and water sports.
