About the College of Business

Creating competent and responsible managers who are principled and moral leaders.

The Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business was founded in 1966 as the University of Dallas’ Graduate School of Management with the mission of delivering a business management education grounded in the same values which had served as the foundation of UD since its founding in 1956 as a Catholic, co-educational University. Named in honor of two of our alumni who provided one of the most generous gifts ever received by the University of Dallas, the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business currently hosts over 1,500 graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate, and professional education programs taught at our campus in Texas and our campus just outside of Rome, Italy.

Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)

Designed to accommodate working professionals seeking to enhance their careers, the DBA program is a selective, three-year 60-credit-hour program taught by scholar-practitioners using a blended format which combines both online and face-to-face learning.

Master of Business Administration (MBA)

Our 30-credit-hour MBA program can be completed part-time in as few as 4-5 semesters. Offered year-round in flexible formats, courses can be taken both on-campus and online at both our main campus located Irving, Texas or at our facility in The Colony.

Master of Science Programs

Our Master of Science programs are designed for students who desire a graduate business education more specifically focused than the MBA. Most M.S. programs can be completed in as few as 30 credit hours or combined with an MBA in a 42 credit-hour program of study.

Graduate Certificates and Professional Development

For working professionals not immediately seeking graduate degrees, the College offers a wide range of for-credit Graduate Certificate programs and several non-credit professional development and certification training programs.

The College currently offers a wide variety of programs for students interested in pursuing a rigorous education in business grounded in real-word experience. Undergraduates can major in business or add it as a concentration to other majors while pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Dallas. Working professionals can pursue a variety of graduate education options including the only AACSB-accredited Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program in Texas, a Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, several Master of Science (MS) programs and a variety of graduate certificate programs. For those seeking professional development and certification, the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business also offers a number of non-credit programs including Human Resource Management, Certified Financial Planner, Certified Treasury Professional, and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®).
