News and Blogs - Executive MBA

Our world is a dynamic, vibrant kaleidoscope of change. At The University of Texas at Dallas, we recognize that to be leaders in this business environment, we must be the disruptors of change and not the victims of change. Over the next few months, the Jindal School’s Executive MBA program will be featuring a series of articles and blog posts written by our faculty. Some of these faculty members are in the vanguard of research and others are adjunct professors already leading in this disruptive world. We want to share our thoughts with you — our alumni, students, prospective students, faculty, staff and general public.

We’re going to cover topics such as insights into the success of NAFTA, the role of the Texas economy in a globalized world, the importance of internal controls in a disruptive economy, what to make of the backlash against globalization, creating opportunities for disruption through innovation, and much, much more.

Please feel free to share your comments or suggest a topic by contacting me. Thank you for following us!
