Mission Statement and Shared Values

Mission Statement

The AACSB accredited Davies College of Business provides reality-based education that enables a diverse* student body to advance intellectually, professionally, and financially.   We create student-focused learning environments and engage in predominantly applied research that contributes to educational excellence, and business and industry practices.

*Diversity at UHD includes demographic factors such as ethnicity, race, and age.  In addition, there is diversity in the quality of their academic preparation since approximately 85% of the students transfer from another institution.
