Full-time MBA | Dallas-Fort Worth

What’s your plan? Powered by a thriving and diversified economy, the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex offers the ideal business lab to launch your career. 

DFW is home to American Airlines, Frito-Lay, Alcon Labs, Exxon-Mobil, Kimberly-Clark and 10,000 other corporations. The area’s balance of high-tech, healthcare, energy, finance, transportation and other industries means that, even when other regional economies flounder, Texas continues strong.

The DFW advantage by the numbers

  • Home to more than 10,000 corporations.
  • #4 Fort Worth and #5 Dallas: “best cities for jobs” (Forbes).
  • #1 metro area in population growth.
  • America’s #2 best “fresh start” cities (Relocation.com).
  • #9 best place to live and launch a business (CNNMoney.com).
  • Fort Worth ranked among top 13 of “America’s most livable communities.” (mostlivable.org)

What can DFW do for you? Through TCU’s connections, you’ll have access to internships with major companies, meaningful face time with execs who frequent campus as guest speakers and mentors, chances to showcase your talent through live case studies, and networking possibilities in practically every business sector.

Where can it take you?  With the experience and connections you’ll gain at Neeley, you’ll have the confidence and access to pursue opportunities in DFW, or anywhere around the world.

But there’s more to life than work, work, work. You can spend an afternoon at the Fort Worth zoo (among the nation’s top 5), catch a Broadway show at the dazzling deco Bass Performance Hall, hit the boutiques and restaurants at Sundance Square downtown or meet friends for a night out in the historic stockyards (where there’s still a weekly rodeo and a slew of tempting honkytonks). There’s a trio of world-class art museums — pre-Columbian to Picasso at the Kimbell, Remingtons and Western classics at the Amon Carter, and Warhol to avant garde at the Modern. Fort Worth is famous as a steak town, but other dining options abound, from stylish sushi bars to mom-and-pop taquerias. If you follow sports, you’ll have easy access to the Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys, Mavericks, and Stars. (If you have time after all the Big 12 action with TCU teams!)

And don’t be surprised if your golf game improves: thanks to the great Fort Worth weather, you can play year-round.
