Message from the Director

The standard for practice-based education.

Scott Wysong, Ph.DThe MBA program at the University of Dallas is unique because it provide students a practice-based graduate education. In each course, students learn key business concepts through experiential projects and assignments. Our philosophy of understanding how to take action on what we learn is just as important as learning the concept.

The culminating course of our MBA program is known as The Capstone Consulting Experience. Student teams spend 12 weeks researching and developing solutions on a real problem for a local, national or international organization. Teams then present their findings and recommendations to the client at the end of the semester. Unlike a case study or fictional project that most MBA programs focus on, UD students gain real experience. It is not uncommon for a client to be so impressed by a project that they offer some students a job. Since 1973, every MBA student at the University of Dallas has participated in a Capstone Consulting project and is the highlight of the MBA experience for many students.

Our MBA program equips students with the skills to become competent and responsible managers who are also principled and moral leaders. We have over 17,000 alumni comprised of CEOs, vice presidents and founders of firms around the world.

Associate Professor Scott Wysong is the director of the MBA program and has taught in the MBA program at the University of Dallas since 2000. Wysong received a Ph.D. and MBA in marketing from the University of Texas at Arlington and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Vanderbilt University.
