Mission

The mission of the School of Business Administration is to provide high-quality academic programs at all levels, but with special emphasis at the graduate level, primarily for non-traditional students. Our mission is supported by hiring and retaining qualified faculty who ensure that our graduates possess the knowledge and skills necessary for successful careers in the domestic and international marketplace.

We dedicate ourselves to continuous improvement in the following areas:

Curriculum: Providing adaptive programs, particularly at the graduate level, that prepare our graduates for successful business careers in a rapidly changing, global and technological environment.

Outreach: Offering educational opportunities to underserved constituencies through a variety of delivery modes (e.g., off-campus sites and Internet) and collaborative arrangements; and offering economic development through sponsored centers.

Intellectual Contributions: Fostering intellectual contributions that emphasize the application of knowledge to improve management practices, with a lesser emphasis placed on the discovery of new knowledge and the enhancement of knowledge related to instructional development.

Service: Providing a balanced array of services to the institution, profession and community, within the constraints of our primary focus on teaching and research.

The UHV School of Business Administration aspires to global leadership in quality, innovative, adaptive and technology-driven programs that prepare students from diverse backgrounds for careers in the domestic and international marketplace.
