The University of Dallas has announced a partnership between the Satish & Yasmin Gupta
College of Business and multifamily real estate firm Avesta. The new partnership will further enable the college to advance its mission to prepare
students in a wide variety of management specialties and to serve a range of industries.
"We are extremely pleased to establish this corporate partnership with Avesta," said Gupta College of Business Dean Brett J. L. Landry. "An organization that is
built on integrity, like Avesta, is a natural partner given our legacy of preparing principled and moral leaders
through experiential and practical business education."
Through the partnership, all Avesta employees will be eligible for tuition benefits when enrolling at the University
of Dallas. The benefits can be applied to master's and continuing education in the
Gupta College of Business's Center for Executive Education.
"We're excited to offer this opportunity for graduate-level education as another great
benefit to our teammates," said Avesta's Director of Hiring and Culture Development Shevin McCullough. "We're grateful to
the University of Dallas team for their personalized service and world-class standard
that will now be made available to our team through this partnership."
"The University of Dallas is a top tier school in a top notch city and we are honored
to be welcomed into a partnership with them," said Avesta President Robert Reynolds. "We pride ourselves on being a great place to work and
providing service that glorifies our customers.
"For 50 years our graduate business program has empowered alumni to lead their organizations
forward," said University of Dallas Director of Corporate Relations and Partnerships
Halley Netsch. "Through an academic partnership with UD, organizations can encourage
their employees to gain greater business knowledge and develop leadership skills."
