Welcome to UNT's G. Brint Ryan College of Business
Since 1942, the G. Brint Ryan College of Business at the University of North Texas has been preparing students for success in business and public service. We continue to be recognized as a leader in business education and scholarship. We accomplish these goals by recognizing and practicing the core values and mission of the College in our everyday teaching, mentoring and scholarship.
We prepare our students for success by imparting the technical and practical knowledge and expertise essential to their fields of study. In addition, we teach them to be critical thinkers, unstructured problem-solvers, and good communicators who appreciate the changing demands of the corporate community. With a broad range of undergraduate and graduate programs, flexible class schedules, career services and co-curricular opportunities, we engage our students through enhanced learning experiences.
As we reach the end of the first quintile of the 21st century and the landscape of the global business environment continues to change, it is crucial that we continue to adapt the way we educate. Disruptive advances such as mobile internet, automation of knowledge work, cloud technology, advanced robotics, autonomous vehicles, next-generation genomics, energy storage, 3D printing, advanced materials, renewable energy and advanced petroleum exploration and recovery will likely change the way we live, work and play (McKinsey Institute, 2013). New terms such as block chain, bitcoin and value co-creation become common parlance, and previously unimagined careers begin to emerge.
As a knowledge-based organization, we must prepare our students to succeed in this dynamic and exciting economy of the future. We have identified eight strategic priorities to address these challenges, build new knowledge, and better prepare our students to be contributing members of this exciting business environment. We build on our history to decide our future, and proactively adapt within our disciplines to lead in business education and research, so that our graduates leave with the knowledge, character and qualifications to succeed.
With state-of-the-art facilities and a continued commitment to academic excellence, Business Leadership Starts Here at the University of North Texas.
With UNT pride,
Marilyn K. Wiley
