Dean's Message - Online MBA Conference

Dr. Hasan Pirkul, Dean of the Naveen Jindal School of Management

On behalf of the faculty, staff and students of the UT Dallas Naveen Jindal School of Management, I want to extend our warmest welcome to all participants coming to our school to attend the 2018 Online MBA (OMBA) Conference.

This is the second annual OMBA conference. A simple discussion around a conference table three years ago led to its creation, and it now serves as a national gathering for dialogues about improving online MBA programs.

The 2018 OMBA Conference, I feel sure, will spawn program improvement ideas, spark research activity and provide excellent networking opportunities for collaboration-building between colleagues.

The scope of this event, Online MBA – Keeping Pace with the Future, invites program decision- makers to bring and test new ideas, and prepare to move them forward in the changing PMBA landscape.

I hope that over these three days, some successful collaborations are born.

I would like to thank the distinguished invited speakers for attending and for their contributions to the conference. I also thank the advisory board members for their efforts in ensuring a rigorous review process to select high quality presentations.

Dr. Hasan Pirkul,
Dean and Caruth Chair of Management
