The School of Management was established in 1975 as the academic unit responsible for (1) the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Management and Administrative Sciences; (2) the Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in International Management Studies; (3) the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in Management Science and in International Management Studies; and (4) an upper-division program leading to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Business Administration.
The School added a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in 1983, and in 1992, in conjunction with U.T. Dallas’s expansion to include a full undergraduate program, lower-division instruction was initiated. The Master of Science in Accounting started in 1994 and the name changed to Master of Science in Accounting and Information Management in 2001. In 1996, the School added the Cohort MBA, a full-time MBA program in which students take all of their courses together in a fixed sequence. In 1997, the School formed a strategic alliance with The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas to offer a Master of Science in Medical Management. The program is open to physicians and senior healthcare administrators.
Since its inception, the School of Management has offered a range of degree options and program formats designed to serve the diverse needs of a student population primarily composed of working adults, but also including traditional full-time graduate students and, more recently, residential undergraduate students.
The graduate programs in the School of Management stress the theory and use of applied sciences for successful management and administration of private and public institutions. Courses provide an opportunity to gain integrated and detailed knowledge of the functional areas of management as well as analytical tools for effective appraisal and decision making. Seminars and research on specific projects are designed to develop creativity and to stimulate the student toward an integrated application of the acquired knowledge.
With over 25 years of operating history and with the rapid development in the “Telecom Corridor” area surrounding the campus, U.T. Dallas’s School of Management has become a major provider of management education to many global corporations.
