Why Choose Marilyn Davies College of Business?

For more than 25 years, the Marilyn Davies College of Business has been accredited by AACSB International, the premier accrediting body in the world for business programs. 

The decision to enroll in an MBA program and/or which program can have a significant impact on your professional future. There are two winners in this process: the working professionals who pursue the program, and the companies who hire UHD graduates. ​


The Structure of Our MBA Program​

Our MBA is tailored for today's professionals with a versatile hybrid modality. While our leveling courses are offered fully online for convenience, you also have the unique opportunity to engage with our Corporate Fellows in conjunction with our dedicated professors, enriching your learning experience.

If there are topics you prefer to digest on your own time, then you may be interested in our many hybrid courses that we offer each part of term. However, for those subjects where face-to-face interaction excels, our hybrid courses kick off post 5 p.m., catering to the schedules of working professionals. Experience the perfect balance of networking and immersive learning, all to the advancement of your knowledge, and in turn, your career. ​

MBA Concentrations & Graduate Certificates​

Our affordable MBA program is designed to fit your needs with a flexible MBA option, and also allows you to choose from a wide variety of MBA concentrations.

UHD also offers eight Graduate Certificates. Certificates comprise the Concentration of your choice without requiring the completion of the Core curriculum. ​



Attend our next information session and you could find out why we believe our program is the best valued MBA in the Houston area.


"Why an MBA at the University of Houston-Downtown?"
Because we offer advantages that set us apart from other institutions:

Looking for balance between having a sufficient theoretical foundation and understanding the practical application of the material? We have the answer: Every one of our Concentration/Graduate Certificate classes in each of our options is team taught by Davies College of Business faculty member and a seasoned industry expert.

The Marilyn Davies College of Business faculty member ensures you have a sound theoretical foundation for the material. The experienced practitioner, or Corporate Fellow, is charged each week with giving members in the class immediate takeaways – something the student can often use in the next week to help them better do their job. Students receive a solid theoretical framework with which to approach the material, but also the all-important ability to see its potential application in the work they do.

Would you like 24/7 access to critical lecture material? Our students have it. Every one of our Concentration/Graduate Certificate classes is flipped. That is, the Marilyn Davies College of Business faculty member has recorded the key lecture material and made it available to students. Students view the lecture material as a part of the preparation for class, with the ability to review explanations to gain a better understanding. This leaves the critical class time for, perhaps, clarifying an issue or two and focusing on the understanding of the application of the material.

“Flipping the class” allows us to offer each concentration/graduate certificate class in a compressed hybrid format. All of our Concentration/Graduate Certificate options are designed to be taken one class at a time. This sequential format gives the student the ability to focus on only one class for a shorter time period.
