Diversity is our strength.

The UT Dallas MBA Program is in the heart of a vibrant, global business economy. Therefore, our students must graduate with the tools necessary to operate in multifaceted settings and learn to harness the power of diversity in their business acumen. These tools are not only part of the curriculum; the program’s environment is a hands-on training ground for developing these skills.

An important takeaway from an MBA experience is that there is no one correct answer to a business decision – it depends. As such, to make a business decision, diversity of thought, i.e., arguments from varied perspectives will lead to a more informed and better decision.
