Houston, the 4th largest city in the United States, is considered one of the most welcoming toward international students. According to the
City of Houston Website, more than 90 languages are spoken throughout the city and 92 countries have consular offices in Houston. Additionally, if Houston was an independent nation, it would rank as the world's 30th largest economy.
Here at UHD MBA we value international students and go to great lengths to help them achieve their goals. Our international MBA students are diverse and we are very appreciative of their backgrounds and contributions to our winning MBA program.
Starting this fall of 2020, we are excited to offer professionals the choice of taking our classes either in-person in our traditional hybrid format or online. International students will need at least 6 hour of face-to-face or hybrid to maintain their residency status. Contact the Office of International Admissions prior to enrolling in any online class.
