“It never was, and it will never be, ‘business as usual’ at UNT. Our new Business Leadership Building will be a perfect symbol of the creative thinking, entrepreneurial spirit and dynamic energy that makes a UNT education such a valuable asset.

Whenever I recruit other UNT graduates for my company I’m confident that I’m getting the best. I know they will have the skills required not just to meet, but exceed, my expectations as well as the expectations of our clients.

The Accounting Department in UNT’s College of Business laid the foundation for my success today. It was a rigorous program that helped me discover a professional path that has brought me great personal satisfaction and financial opportunity.”
