Houston, TX 77002
The College of Business is situated in Downtown Houston (One Main Street) in a 150,000 square foot building that opened in August 2007 at a cost of $35 million. The facility contains a technology commons with full electronic support for students, including laptop computer checkout and ample gathering space for students to casually network or work together on team projects. A 600-space parking garage is attached, so downtown parking is not a problem.
Our downtown location and close proximity to the Port of Houston (the busiest port in the United States in terms of foreign tonnage, second-busiest in the United States in terms of overall tonnage, and tenth-busiest in the world), provides ready access to Houston's 22 corporate headquarters of Fortune 500 companies -- second only to New York's 45. The Greater Houston Partnership has a strategic goal of “helping create an additional 600,000 jobs in the next 10 years." The additional jobs will be in the industry clusters of biotechnology, aerospace and aviation, energy and petrochemicals, health care, information technology and nanotechnology.
All require a highly-educated workforce lead by an equally highly-educated and skilled management. The College of Business, already the second largest provider of business graduates to Houston’s progressive, forward-thinking, vibrant, and growing economy, is uniquely positioned to meet the future industry needs of greater Houston.
The College of Business has many opportunities for study in all areas of business. If you want to become an accountant, stockbroker, corporate recruiter -- we can help you achieve your goal. If you are unsure, we can help you evaluate your interests, set goals, and develop an educational plan that will provide you with a lucrative and rewarding career.
