    Reasons why I chose UT Dallas for my masters program are as follows: Cost of attendance : I had a better freshman scholarship at Dallas. .Enrollment numbers and smaller class sizes and this would result in smaller class sizes and less number of faculty members enhancing the quality of education. UTD provides many resources and experience to assist us during our time at UTD.

    Course Curriculum :

    The course curriculum is strictly relevant to the Industry demands and UTD provides many resources and experiences to assist us during our time at UTD for instance students will be given access to enough boot camps organized by the university before the commencing of the course and this helps us to get bit ready for our courses.

    After my family moved from India to Texas, I was quite clear that this was the university I wanted to attend, since it was well known for its MBA program. I was directed to their official website to give my application and I did so, paying an application fee of $150.

    Course Curriculum :

    I had opted for the full-time MBA program and personally, I found the curriculum quite rigorous and challenging but since this was something I was really passionate about, I enjoyed thoroughly. So we had Accounting, Financial Management, Statistics, Organizational Behaviour, Strategy, International Business and Economics, and also several concentrations to choose from, depending on the industry we'd like to specialize in, so there was Supply Chain Management, Health Care Management, IT and the like.
