Evening MBA Courses to be Offered in The Colony Beginning Fall 2015

The Colony MBA Courses

 

The University of Dallas Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business will begin offering Master of Business Administration (MBA) courses at the Cascades Event Center in The Colony, Texas, beginning with the fall 2015 term. The program expansion comes as several multi-billion-dollar companies relocate thousands of jobs to the Plano area with additional corporate relocations expected due to Texas favorable business climate.

Offering the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business MBA courses at a location in The Colony means greater opportunity for area residents and business professionals to earn an advanced degree and improve their career potential, said Interim Dean Brett J. L. Landry. The availability of higher education opportunities will continue to grow in importance in this area as more companies relocate their headquarters to The Colony/Plano areas.

The Colony MBA courses will be identical to courses offered by the high-quality, AACSB-accredited program on the colleges Irving campus and provide students with the core leadership, managerial and other skills necessary to excel in a corporate environment. A hallmark of the University of Dallas MBA program is the culminating Capstone Experience in which students work in the field with an actual business client to address a strategic or operational issue in their company, entrepreneurial venture or nonprofit organization.

The Cascades Event Center is southwest of the State Highway 121 and Legacy Drive intersection in Plano. For more information, including details of an upcoming open house, visit udallas.edu/thecolony.
