    • June 2015 Sky Talk
      Sky Talk, a Fort Worth Star-Telegram airline blog, quoted David Mack, assistant dean in the UT Arlington College of Business, in a post about the decision by American Airlines to put a woman, Maxine Peng, in charge of its China operations. "Although there is still a dominance of upper-level positions by males, there is not a prejudice, per se, regarding females [in China] such as there is in other Asian cultures,” Mack said, noting that 40 percent of the women in each class of UT Arlington’s executive MBA program in China are women.

      David Mack, associate dean of the UT Arlington College of Business, was quoted in a Dallas Morning News special section about the power of an MBA. The UT Arlington format allows students to attend classes twice a month, on Fridays and Saturdays, and to complete the program in 15 months. In addition, UT Arlington has a distinctive China connection, a required 10-day emersion trip to three cities in China. "They get a good understanding of what it's like to do business in China, and also earn a certificate in Asian studies," said Mack, who heads the EMBA program.

    • June 2014 Fort Worth Star-Telegram
      UT Arlington professors say that direct flights will strengthen ties to China, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. UT Arlington professors have been traveling to China to teach executive MBA classes for more than a decade. David Mack, assistant dean at the UT Arlington College of Business, said China is taking more control of the process. Business Dean Rachel Croson said, “When the students come here, they bring their families. It will make our program more attractive.” She said about 40 Chinese executives come to UT Arlington to study for a year. To date, UT Arlington has more than 2,000 graduates who have completed its China MBA program. Bloomberg Business Week also published the Star-Telegram story.
