Message from the Dean

Susan Rhame, Ph.D., CPAWelcome to the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business!

As interim dean of the College, I am extremely proud of the rich tradition of providing practical, experiential-based business education that our college has upheld since its founding. Our undergraduate and graduate business programs prepare our students to become leaders with the moral depth and intellectual intensity necessary to meet the challenges of a time of critical transition in society.

The Gupta College of Business holds the prestigious business accreditation from AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). In addition, the College is designated as a Center of Academic Excellence (CAE) by the National Security Agency (NSA) of the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Department of Homeland Security for Information Assurance (IA).

Located in an economic and cultural hub, the University of Dallas offers unique opportunities for our students to engage with DFW’s companies and communities. For example, through the Capstone Experience, our MBA students have completed over 3,000 strategic consulting projects for local and national companies, entrepreneurial ventures and not-for-profit organizations. The Capstone Experience has not only benefited the business community, but has provided the perfect opportunity for our students to begin putting their education into action.

Central to the success of our students and over 14,000 Gupta College of Business alumni, has been the decades of leadership and experience-based knowledge that our faculty bring into the classroom. As thought leaders in their industry, the knowledge and research contributions of our faculty continue to drive change and have a positive societal impact at the university, in the community, and across the globe.

I invite all of you who are interested in expanding your knowledge and enriching your careers to explore our school further either online or through a visit to campus. I hope that you will join our community of life-long learners.
