Professional Master’s Degree Program

How many times have you wanted to go back to school for your master’s degree, only to tell yourself that it was impossible with your work and personal obligations? You knew there had to be a way, but it just seemed out of reach.

The professional master’s degree in SEM is primarily for students, full-time or part-time, with at least three years of professional experience who enroll in specially offered cohort classes on weekday evenings, late Fridays and on Saturdays. With this program, you can access the world-class faculty at UT Dallas and take advantage of the hands-on learning experiences this degree has to offer. The Professional SEM program draws faculty from both schools – the Jindal School of Management and the Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.
