Graduate Business Programs See Significant Enrollment Increase

Graduate Business Programs See Enrollment Increase Among International Students

 

As many colleges and universities across America face declining enrollments, the University of Dallas' Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business is experiencing a 16 percent increase in new students overall. The growth is due in large part to a population of new international students that is 200 percent larger than in fall 2013.

The total population of international students in the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business has almost doubled and now comprises 20 percent of total graduate enrollment. The most represented countries are India, China, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and Pakistan.

Dean Robert Scherer primarily attributes the increase to the college's AACSB Accreditation in 2012.

"Increased visibility of the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business on an international level is a direct result of our AACSB Accreditation," said Scherer. "The distinction, which is earned by fewer than five percent of business schools worldwide, is known globally as a benchmark of academic quality."

Additionally, the college is seeing enrollment increases in two new programs. Enrollment in its master of science in finance program introduced in fall 2013 has increased by 300 percent, while the university's doctor of business administration (DBA) program began its inaugural term with a full class. More than 30 business executives were accepted into the state's only AACSB-accredited DBA program.

In October, the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business will break ground on SB Hall, the college's new home, which is being made possible by a gift from Satish and Yasmin Gupta. The Guptas are University of Dallas alumni and founders of the privately-held global steel company SB International.
