Message from the Dean

Dean Landry University of DallasOn behalf of all our faculty, staff and students, welcome to the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business!

As dean of the college, I’m extremely proud of the rich tradition of providing practical, experience-based business education that our college has upheld since its founding. Our business programs prepare our students to become leaders with the moral depth and intellectual intensity necessary to meet the challenges of a time of critical transition in society.

Located in an economic and cultural hub, the University of Dallas offers unique opportunities for our students to engage with DFW’s companies and communities. For example, through the Capstone Experience, our MBA students have completed over 3,000 strategic consulting projects for local and national companies, entrepreneurial ventures and not-for-profit organizations. The Capstone Experience has not only benefited the business community, but has provided the perfect opportunity for our students to begin putting their education into action.

Central to the success of our students and over 14,000 Gupta College of Business alumni, has been the decades of leadership and experience-based knowledge that our faculty bring into the classroom. As thought leaders in their industry, the knowledge and research contributions of our faculty continue to drive change both at the university and across the globe.

I would like to cordially invite all of you who are interested in expanding your knowledge and enriching your careers to explore our school further either online or through a visit to campus.

Brett J. L. Landry
Dean & Professor of Cybersecurity
