5 The University of Texas at Dallas Richardson, TX

When Naveen Jindal studied business at the University of Texas at Dallas, the experience provided him with the education and inspiration that propelled his future success. Since graduating in 1992, Jindal—who received a 2010 UT Dallas Distinguished Alumnus—went on to become the chairman of his family’s steel manufacturing business and a five-term member of parliament in India. He even founded a university, O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) in Haryana, India, in honor of his father.

Now, students who attend Naveen Jindal School of Management also receive the same kind of inspiration and education to make great strides in their own careers. The school has six areas of concentration for business students—finance and managerial economics; marketing; organizations, strategy and international management; accounting; operations management; and information systems. All programs offer bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees.

UTD students can also gain invaluable work experience from the school’s Institutes and Centers of Excellence. For example, the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship provides training and resources for students interested in starting their own business, as well as mentorship from successful entrepreneurs. To put students’ ideas and education to the test, the Center holds an annual UT Dallas Business Idea Competition to win $20,000 in cash and scholarships. The school’s Startup Launch Program provides mentoring support and seed money to undergraduate and graduate students with scalable business ideas. The program helped launch student ideas such as the TraceIT mobile app for the trucking industry; Blanco Farms Exotic Mushrooms, which meets the demand around the state for locally-grown mushrooms; and Kwest, a scavenger hunt app for tourists.

Similarly, UTD’s Center for Information Technology and Management allows students to collaborate with technology professionals on real-world business problems or research projects. Other Centers and Institutes at the Naveen Jindal School of Management are the Center and Laboratory for Behavioral Operations and Economics, the Institute for Excellence in Corporate Governance, the Center for Finance Strategy Innovation, and the Center for Intelligent Supply Networks.

9 Texas A & M University-College Station College Station, TX

Back in 1876, farmers who enrolled in the agricultural degree programs at Texas A&M University-College Station got the opportunity to take business classes, such as creamery management and bookkeeping. These courses helped them learn about the commercial end of working the land. From these humble beginnings, the school and students alike increasingly saw the benefits of business education at the school. More and more of these classes were added to the institution’s roster in subsequent years, which eventually led to Texas A&M opening the Mays Business School. Today, more than 5,000 graduate and undergraduate students are enrolled—and whether they aspire to work on the farm or in the office, the education they receive promotes high standards for business leadership. In 1990, the Mays Business School opened its Center for International Business Studies to provide students with a worldwide business perspective that prepares them for the realities of the global marketplace. Through the Center, students are able to participate in study abroad business programs, as well as international internships. In addition, the Center offers international business courses and certificate programs. Other business centers at Mays include the Center for Retailing Studies, the Center for Human Resource Management, the Real Estate Center, and the Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship.
