WE ARE TEAM #RaisingDollars4UTDScholars



The Naveen Jindal School of Management (JSOM) at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) is at the forefront of preparing future leaders and is one of a select few business schools to have undergraduates submitting published work. Under the direction of Dr. Shawn Carraher, undergraduate research director, students in his capstone Strategic Management classes research relevant business topics and submit their peer-reviewed work to multiple international academic conferences.



Each year, JSOM undergraduate students have the opportunity to present their work at prestigious conferences like the Global Conference on Business & Economics (GCBE) held at University of Oxford Saïd Business School (UK). Recognition at academic conferences like GCBE sets us apart from other business schools and one step closer to Tier 1. This raised awareness of our highly ranked school benefits students, alumni and our community.  This experience will offer students the opportunity to fellowship with mentors from the global academic community.

Who is attending?

Luz Echanove, Van Le, Tara Padilla and Kris Ross

Why were they chosen?

These four volunteered not only to represent our class but also the University of Texas at Dallas.


Unfortunately, some students could not attend past conferences because of the associated costs. The total expenses to attend conferences like GCBE ranges from $1,500 to $2,000 per student. We believe that financial challenges should never be a barrier to those who dream of academic excellence.

What does the costs include?

These costs include airfare, meals, lodgings and the fees associated with admission to the conferences.

What happens if we exceed our goal?

We use any donation overages to help other JSOM students with their trips.  


Our $3,500 class goal will help defray a portion of the traveling costs for students. Your tax-deductible donation will make it possible for them to present their research on an international stage and have their work published in an academic journal.  

Together, We Can Make a Difference! Join us and use this opportunity to give back and make an impact for these students. 


IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION: You are not the only one who is helping our cause! 100% of what we receive through the Impact UTD website will be MATCHED dollar by dollar by the JSOM Dean!
