Details

The UNT Dallas School of Business is committed to both excellence in business and excellence in leadership.  Our service learning program insures that every graduate has proven experience.  We know that hard work is the most important part to success in business, but that knowledge, practice and guidance are critical to making the most of that success.  To that end, we emphasize the following areas in all our classes:

  • Researching the latest strategies and business principles that guide modern industries
  • Professional responsibility both on and off the job
  • Continual improvement through training and self-discovery

All of our students develop in each of these areas, allowing them to be much more valuable to employers and colleagues.  We understand that the education process is much more than just obtaining a piece of paper, and we strive to impart both knowledge and the skills to acquire more knowledge in every class and with every new concept.
