Student Life

Students at UT Dallas are “smart, ambitious, driven” and “usually foreign, married, or just out of undergrad.” One student says, “Fifty to seventy-five percent of each of my classes comprises Asian and Asia-Indian students.” “The diverse student population helps expose us to many different types of people, opinions, and experiences.” “Most of the students are friendly and conservative.” In addition to ethnic diversity, there is a “good mix of working students with families and singles coming straight in from under-grad programs.” “I have classmates from diverse backgrounds, experience, age, culture, ethnicity, and countries,” explains one student. “It’s fun.” The “team-oriented approach allows us to connect closely to each other.” As for life on campus, the school is “very safe,” and UT Dallas “tries to bring students together with different activities for people with similar interests.” “I can definitely say that the social offerings and opportunities are very high and also very popular” one student explains. “Graduate students may not have the time/want of such extracurricular activities; however, they are available if wanted.”

Career

UT Dallas provides many services to help students’ career prospects, such as “frequent workshops and seminars,” which “help students find the right job after (or during) the program.” It doesn’t hurt that the school is located in Dallas where “lots of companies . . . are interested in hiring graduates.” “The Dallas business community is among the most vibrant in the United States, and I wanted to stay close to this when I graduate,” says one consulting student about his decision to attend UT Dallas. The school could do more to “improve in developing further relationships with the large companies in the Dallas/Fort Worth area” and “improve on job prospects of students.” “Maybe it’s the economy, but we haven’t seen many prominent recruitments on campus,” says one student. “[We are] pretty much on our own.” Other students say that although placement may not be as strong as it could be, the school is “on the right track.” UT Dallas is “still a relatively young full-time MBA pro¬gram that is growing its alumni base,” but it is “building a strong reputation and connec¬tions to the Dallas business community.” The school claims an average base salary of about $70,000 for recent graduates, and almost 88 percent find placement in the Southwest. Some companies that recruit from UT Dallas include Richards Group, JP Morgan, Sunquest, Bank of America, and Capital One.

Students Say

The University of Texas at Dallas is “one of the fast growing schools” with a “good rep­utation in the Southwest area,” offering “a variety of concentration areas, as well as MS degrees within those areas.” Unlike most MBA programs, UT Dallas’s full-time, cohort-based MBA’s “duration is only 16 months.” “UT Dallas is a great bargain for an MBA program, factoring in national rank, prestige, and tuition prices,” one student declares. UT Dallas is “ranked in the top 50,” yet has “reasonable tuition” and is “a quarter of the price of SMU (the other good option in Dallas).” The Jindal School has a “rigorous cur­riculum,” “flexible scheduling,” “higher than average test scores, and top tier faculty.” The city of Dallas is a huge plus for business students, as the “DFW Metro area [is] where many Fortune-500 companies base their headquarters,” which provides “many opportu­nities for graduates.” The professors at UT Dallas “are very attentive and interested in their students learning,” which is evidenced by how readily they “make themselves available for extra instruction outside of class.” The faculty strikes a balance “between professors with an academic background and real-world background,” giving students the best of both worlds. “They seem to have a genuine interest in teaching the courses” and “are very enthusiastic about what they teach, and this is very motivating.” Professors at UT Dallas work hard to “encourage debates and arguments to explore other opinions in the classroom.” However, some students say too many of the professors are “boring academics” who teach with “an unnecessary emphasis on working in groups or giving presentations.” While not small, the class sizes are “manageable” and “have a small-school feel” where “you are able to really know each and every student in the class and develop close rela­tionships beyond just a name.” Students are mostly happy with the school administration, calling it “extremely helpful” and “very interested in the experience of its students.” The Jindal School “administrators are extremely caring and always make themselves accessible,” one student says, “whether it be for school or non-school issues. Many times, they go above and beyond expectations just to help us in our lives, both career and personal.” “When emailing var­ious offices and professors, I always got a swift and helpful response,” says another. However, “online registration and notification of critical deadlines” could be “communi­cated [more] effectively and thoroughly,” and there are always “long lines at bursar’s, financial aid, and advising” offices. Students with cars beware that “parking is a night­mare.” The School’s problems may be improving, though. As one student says, “We are still an up-and-coming university, so all the kinks may not be worked out, but we are heading in the right direction. I’m excited to be a part of this university, and I know it has a very bright future.” According to university officials, newly approved construction projects will add 1,700 parking spaces in the near future.
