One of the prime advantages of the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business at the University of Dallas is convenience for the working professional. Intermester classes held two evenings and Saturdays for 3-4 weeks are also an option. The Gupta College of Business uses a trimester system, with fall, spring and summer terms. With year-round classes and multiple starting points each term, students can choose from 12-week, 6-week, or intermester classes.
