In August, as many as 120 business students in India will enroll in UNT M.B.A. classes offered through a new partnership between the Areez Khambatta Benevolent Trust and the university.
“The quality of our M.B.A. program will be enhanced because of this partnership,” says Finley Graves, College of Business dean. “It will provide our students with a more culturally diverse environment in which they can discuss business practices and explore challenges as classmates before they do so as corporate executives.”
The two-year program will be offered in a cohort model. Courses will be administered in a prescribed sequence over five terms at the Khambatta Center for Excellence in Ahmedabad. For their sixth and final semester, students will come to Denton for classes. They will be awarded a UNT M.B.A. upon completion of the final semester.
An emerging industry hub, India is one of the fastest-growing nations in the world. Already, Indian students are among the largest international student populations on campus. Graves says this new partnership grows UNT’s commitment to meet the needs of the global work force.
Made possible by the Areez Khambatta Benevolent Trust, the partnership capitalizes on the Khambatta family’s dedication to helping and the university’s mission to make a difference.
