Comets to the Core Has Freshmen Teaming Up to Tackle Problems
Comets to the Core Has Freshmen Teaming Up to Tackle Problems The University of Texas at Dallas will engage freshman students in a new initiative this fall to help them meet peers from other disciplines, cultivate critical thinking and communication skills, and exhibit problem-solving and teamwork abilities.

Comets to the Core is a co-curricular requirement for all new freshman students except those from specialized high schools where they earned an associate degree concurrent with their diploma. 

Students will complete a group project within the first six weeks of enrollment and again in the fall semester of their junior year when most have completed their core curriculum. 
New Degree Seeks to Fill Demand for Supply Chain Experts
UT Dallas has launched a new bachelor’s degree in one of the country’s hottest new business fields.

The Naveen Jindal School of Management introduced a BS degree this semester in supply chain management (SCM), described by U.S. News & World Report recently as the business world’s “next great frontier.”

Supply chain management professionals oversee the acquisition of parts and raw materials, managing complex networks of supply and demand from the purchasing stage to delivery.

An increased number of job openings, growing salaries and advancement opportunities have spurred a wave of interest in supply chain management as a career choice.
