Professional MBA Evening Cohort



The Jindal School of Management at UT Dallas offers an evening cohort MBA for full-time employees in a 24 month sequenced program beginning each Fall semester. All core classes are taken together as a group and the electives are selected by the student based on personal academic goals. The program provides stronger networking as well as career and leadership development opportunities. An international study trip is also available for students to use as elective credits towards the 53 total hours.
