Why Transfer to UHD's Marilyn Davies College of Business

Shea Building, Suite B101 320 N. Main St. Houston, TX 77002 713-221-8675

Premiere Accreditation - AACSB

As you may know, UHD's Marilyn Davies College of Business is among the less than 5% of the world's business programs accredited by the prestigious AACSB-International Accreditation. AACSB-International Accreditation is the largest and most widely recognized business accreditation in the world. Not just a "stamp of approval," the process of earning AACSB Accreditation requires a serious long-term commitment by the school to develop, implement, and maintain the highest level of quality education delivered to its students. AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than those from non-accredited schools.

Nine Majors to Choose From

The Marilyn Davies College of Business offers an excellent Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in any of nine majors: Accounting, Finance, Management Information Systems, International Business , Management, Marketing, Supply Chain Management, Insurance & Risk Management, and General Business. Many of our students also select optional minors, within the business college or in another field.

The BBA degree at the Marilyn Davies College of Business follows a template established by the State of Texas and the AACSB recommendations. The BBA degree plan has 120 hours and is divided in three "parts."

  • 42-hr General Education core (as mandated by the State of Texas)
  • 18-hrs pre-business core
  • 60-hour Upper Division set, divided equally among Business Core and Major Courses.

Total 120 Hours!

Previous College Credits Never Expire

UHD is one of a few schools that accept transfer credits, regardless of age. In other words, your college credits don't ever expire! UHD is also one of a few schools where one can earn a second degree. Students admitted on Post-Baccalaureate status may pursue second degrees and/or classes for professional certification (CPA, CFA, CFM, etc.) UHD also allows you to begin courses while attending Community College. Simply ask for Joint Admission.

Flexible Learning Options

Most of the Business students are working mature adults who find our variety of night, day, online, and weekend classes attractive and flexible enough to meet their needs. Business majors can complete their major requirements online, with the exception of Accounting. We also offer the BBA degree for several majors in our Northwest and Kingwood campuses.
