UD Extends Relevant Graduate Business Programs for North Texas

Gupta College of Business to Launch Four New MBA Concentrations

 Date Published: Tuesday, July 9

COBThe University of Dallas is proud to announce the launch of four new Master of Business Administration (MBA) concentrations in the Satish and Yasmin Gupta College of Business: The MBA in Marketing, the MBA in Strategic Leadership, the MBA in Supply Chain Management and the MBA in Healthcare Analytics. All four programs are accepting applications for the 2019 fall semester.

These new MBA concentration offerings are announced on the heels of the recent launch of two new analytics-focused degrees, the Master of Science (M.S.) in Cyber Intelligence and the M.S. in Financial Analytics, further highlighting UD's commitment to provide timely, relevant graduate business degree options for North Texas.

The new concentrations add to UD's growing list of program offerings, which already include accounting, business analytics, cybersecurity, finance and information technology management. All Gupta College of Business graduate programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

"Our four new MBA concentrations are strategically developed based on the needs of the growing organizations and communities that we serve," said Gupta College of Business Dean Brett J. L. Landry. "It's important that our students receive the specialized training and leadership skills needed to succeed in their careers throughout Dallas/Fort Worth and across the globe."

Building on the Gupta College's existing curriculum, the MBA in Marketing concentration is designed with the foremost belief in learning to tell a compelling brand story - and measuring its success to help small and large organizations alike more uniquely position themselves to stand out in today's competitive business arena. The program is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in marketing, combining important aspects of marketing strategy with analytics.

The MBA in Strategic Leadership concentration was developed with the university's nationally renowned business leadership experts and is designed specifically for those who desire to lead with integrity and create a lasting impact on the organizations they serve.

Developed in conjunction with Loyola University Chicago, the MBA in Supply Chain Management concentration offers a fully online course curriculum from Loyola's nationally ranked Quinlan School of Business. Through this partnership, students gain skills central to effective end-to-end supply chain management.

Finally, in partnership with the University of South Florida (USF) Health Morsani College of Medicine, the MBA in Healthcare Analytics concentration delivers an essential foundation and understanding of analytics, statistics, data mining and reporting as they apply to health care business and operations. Offering an SAS-approved certificate from USF Morsani College of Medicine, the program is ideal for students who are currently pursuing their MBAs and who wish to gain a greater understanding of the health care business.

The launch of these four new concentrations signals a continuing focus on providing a premier graduate business education, one that matches the needs of evolving business communities across various industries delivered by knowledgeable, expert faculty in the University of Dallas' Gupta College of Business.
