Emphasis on excellence
When you attend UHV, you join a nationally recognized,
accredited university that is part of the UH System. The
School of Business Administration is accredited by AACSB
International - The Association to Advance Collegiate
Schools of Business, which accredits less than 5 percent of
business schools worldwide. A Hispanic-Serving Institution
and a Military Friendly School, UHV was ranked eighth out
of 32 Texas public universities in the 2016 Best Colleges
list (Niche.com). These recognitions mean you will graduate
with an excellent education that will help you make your
mark on your future career.
We'll help you land a professional job
You've heard by now how your degree can open new doors to careers. It's true. A UHV education
will give you the training, skills and preparation to launch your career. But that's not all. UHV Career
Services is here to help you get your rewarding first job after graduation. Phillips 66, GEICO, Wells
Fargo and Microsoft are just a few of the companies that have hired UHV graduates. And UHV
students who graduate with a bachelor's degree earn an average of 11 percent more their first year on
the job than the state average (comparecollegetx.com). That's more money in the bank for you. UHV
Career Services also can help with resumes, job interviews and finding work while you are in school.
