Dean's Message - Part-Time 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 Part-Time MBA (PMBA) Conference.

It is an honor to host the conference as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. Throughout these years, PMBA conferees have focused on sharing new ideas, best practices and hopes for improvement. In meeting annually, the conference has served to build a strong nationwide network of MBA colleagues who have established a strong alliance on behalf of better education.

I am confident 2018 PMBA will once again play an important role in spurring research, encouraging continuous program improvement and providing excellent opportunities to build more and better collaborations between colleagues.

The scope of this event, The PMBA of the Future and The Future of the PMBA, provides a unique meeting ground for program decision-makers to forge emerging ideas and move forward in ever-changing PMBA landscape. I am confident that over these three days, new partnerships, stronger alliances and even more cooperative relationships will result.

I thank all the distinguished invited speakers for their presence and 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
