Talent Development

Create an environment of personal and professional growth through education with the tuition reimbursement benefit and the corporate partner preferred tuition rate offered through the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business.

The University of Dallas also offers nondegree-seeking courses through its Executive Leadership Programs and its Center for Executive Education. These educational opportunities range from specific certifications such as CISSP, CFP, TMP and SHRM to programs designed around topics such as leadership, ethics and CSR. If your employees need a specific program, UD can tailor courses created for your organization and deliver them on location, on our campus or online.

Consulting & Research

Have a business idea or problem that needs high-powered attention? For over 40 years, through the Capstone Consulting Experience, UD students have been assisting a variety of businesses and organizations ranging from startups to nonprofits and Fortune 500 companies.

MBA students at the University of Dallas, under the direction of a key faculty member, apply their knowledge and skills to actual business problems through the Capstone Experience. This program is designed to integrate the student's collective knowledge with real-world, real-time issues in need of solutions. The result is your business gaining a new perspective and UD students benefiting from this hands-on, real-world experience.

Executives on Campus

It is our mission to grow students into principled and moral leaders. A crucial element of this growth is the sharing of knowledge and experiences from community leaders. Through the Executives on Campus program, the University of Dallas invites over 70 executives into the classroom each year.
