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.
