Dallas College

Mission

Dallas College, formerly the Dallas County Community College District, was founded in 1965, as seven separate colleges under district oversight. To serve our students and constituencies more effectively, the Board of Trustees recently approved an effort to combine the seven colleges into one, multi-campus unit college with seven campuses and re-brand the DCCCD as "Dallas College”. Dallas College offers online learning and serves more than 83,000 credit and 25,000 continuing education students during the fall and spring semesters.

Dallas College also offers dual credit for students in partner high schools and early college high schools throughout Dallas County. Dr. Joe May, the college’s 7th chancellor, has established the Dallas College higher education network in partnership with area school districts, colleges, and universities, businesses, community organizations to remove barriers to support student success. 

The Office of Global Economic Development plays an important role in positioning Dallas College as a recognized global workforce and economic development resource for private companies, foreign embassies and consulates, chambers of commerce, and organizations in North Texas including foreign companies. We promote District resources such as customized training, talent acquisition, international internships, study abroad programs, apprenticeship programs, and business assistance.

University of Texas -Dallas

Mission

The University of Texas at Dallas is a rising research powerhouse with eight schools and more than 140 academic degrees including top-ranked programs in business, engineering, science, audiology and arts, and technology. The campus community is enriched by a commitment to the arts, service-learning opportunities, and an athletics program with new esports teams. UTD students, faculty, staff, and alumni continue to rise to new challenges, proving that Comets shine bright.

The University is committed to graduating well-rounded citizens whose education has prepared them for rewarding lives and productive careers in a constantly changing world; to continually improving educational and research programs in the arts and sciences, engineering, and management; and to assist the commercialization of intellectual capital generated by students, staff, and faculty. Our students are strongly encouraged to broaden their opportunities outside the university. Mandatory completion of a study abroad or an international internship is required. The international internship at your company would provide Global Business and International Management Studies students a great opportunity to apply their knowledge to the workplace. The introduction to the corporate environment and a variety of projects in various fields to which they will be exposed during the internship at your company will be invaluable in student’s growth and success in a global environment.

Blessed by our location, UT Dallas has become one of the best research universities in Texas. The Jindal School is not only the largest but also the most highly ranked school within UT Dallas. Few universities in the United States offer as comprehensive a set of degree programs dedicated to global business as we do — at the undergraduate, master’s, and Ph.D. levels. Our world-class faculty publish some of the most influential and widely cited research. Students flock to our programs. Businesses are eager to tap into our talent pool. UT Dallas is truly a center for global business.
