This past summer, TCU Neeley welcomed more than 120 new graduate business students to its portfolio of graduate programs.

Nearly three-quarters of these new students are DFW-area working professionals who joined one of Neeley’s several evening graduate programs: the Professional MBA, the Health Care MBA, the Energy MBA and the MS in Supply Chain Management.
