An MBA from UHD … it’s a Major Opportunity!

PHoto of University of Houston-DowntownThe University of Houston-Downtown is an urban university, with its campus growing vertically rather than the traditional sprawling, horizontal layout of most American university campuses. It was founded in 1974 in the heart of Houston’s central business district, near major freeways, the rail and bus lines, and in close proximity to the heart of downtown’s corporate centers and multiple Fortune 500 headquarters.

The University serves student populations that match the rich ethnic and multicultural diversity that defines Houston. The student population is 39% Hispanic, 29% African-American, 20% white, 9% Asian, 3% International or other ethnicity, with a total enrollment of almost 13,000 in graduate and undergraduate studies. University-wide, approximately 2,000 students graduate each year.

UHD prides itself on exceptional faculty and facilities. Students find unique opportunities to participate in research with faculty, build personal relationships with faculty mentors, and gain an enriched educational experience through small class sizes with one-on-one interactions.

The faculty has earned an impressive reputation for caring about the success of their students. They build relationships with their students that benefit both student and faculty well beyond conferring a degree—through networking and providing students with the resource-rich, faculty contacts that graduates can continue to tap for years beyond their graduate education.

UHD is excited about the opportunity to bring its student-focused model to business professionals seeking the advanced skill set and knowledge offered through the new MBA program. The business school’s state-of-the-art facility and dedicated team of multi-discipline faculty assist the higher-level business professional in accelerating his/her career growth through their unique mentoring system.

As one of the four distinct and separate components of the University of Houston System, UHD offers educational opportunities and access to students from a variety of backgrounds.
