Why Transfer to UHD's Marilyn Davies College of Business
Shea Building, Suite B101
320 N. Main St. Houston, TX 77002
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:
Management Information Systems,
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
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.

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.
