UT Tyler College of Business, Technology Forms New Academic Structures
Two new academic structures within The University of Texas at Tyler College of Business and Technology have been created, Dr. Jim Tarter, College of Business and Technology dean, announced.
Human resource development, technology applied arts and sciences and construction management programs are now combined to form the School of Human Resource Development and Technology.
Business administration programs, the bachelor of business administration and the master’s of business administration, form the School of Business Administration.
“Our move to this two-school structure establishes clear distinctions for recruiting and educating our students and then assisting them in finding jobs,” said Tarter. “The academic programs in each have different admission requirements and accreditation agencies. This structure follows our strategy to position and market two distinct and excellent academic areas.”
Dr. Clayton Allen, UT Tyler professor of human resource development and technology, is the associate dean for the School of Human Resource Development and Technology. Dr. Barbara Wooldridge, UT Tyler associate professor of marketing, is an interim associate dean for the School of Business Administration. She will serve in that capacity until a permanent associate dean is named.
