Excellence in Research

The UTSA College of Business trains the next generation of managers, leaders and wealth creators and transforms business students into career-ready professionals. With more than 5,700 students, it is one of UTSA’s largest colleges. It is also the 27th largest undergraduate business program and 38th largest business school in the nation. Enhancing the College of Business is UTSA’s diverse student population. Forty-five percent of UTSA students will be the first in their families to earn a degree. Sixty-five percent are minorities.

The College of Business offers a comprehensive curriculum at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels and offers unique programming in cybersecurity, data analytics, entrepreneurship, financial services, and real estate finance and development. 

The college’s cybersecurity programs were ranked No. 1 by the Ponemon Institute, and the college will launch a new online BBA in cyber security this fall. Hispanic Business and The Princeton Review each rank the UTSA M.B.A. program in the top 10 nationally. Bloomberg Businessweek ranks UTSA among the top 5 undergraduate business schools in Texas and the No. 1 Hispanic Serving Institution in the nation.

The College of Business delivers unparalleled value through educational programs that supply students with business, technical and professional skills that can be implemented immediately in the workplace. Business students are in demand and have received job offers with Big Four accounting firms, investment banks on Wall Street and with top firms such as Amazon, H-E-B, Microsoft, Rackspace, Target and USAA.

As UTSA becomes a premier research university, the UTSA College of Business is a place where opportunities live and dreams are realized. Like the business environment it supports, UTSA is meeting the growing needs of the business community and improving social and economic development, not only for students but for San Antonio, Texas and the nation.
