The Coordinating Board recently approved UNT Dallas' undergraduate certification in Dealership Management in the School of Business. This program is the direct result of meetings with Premier Trucking’s management team and consultation with other companies in the industry. The certification now moves on toward SACS approval for the fall 2017 semester. Students with an interest in the program can take their first class, "Introduction to the Automotive Industry" this spring beginning March 20, 2017.

This program is designed to improve career opportunities for current dealership managers and to help those in non-management positions transition into management roles. Enrollees must complete and pass seven courses to receive a certificate. Courses will be taught by academically-qualified instructors with real-world dealership experience including new adjunct faculty member, Steve Brazill.
