One of the reasons I chose UT Dallas was because of the low tuition costs—using my veteran’s benefits reduced my out-of-pocket costs to almost nothing. The Professional MBA cohort structure has allowed me to connect more meaningfully with my classmates, more so than most other traditional MBA formats.

The instructors are great about bringing real-time events into the classroom and encouraging us to apply our experiences to their material as well. You tend to read more intently and dig deeper for interesting information because you want to make sure that you are an active, knowledgeable participant in the class conversations.
