At a private university nestled in the heart of the second largest city in Texas, San Antonio, the H-E-B School of Business and Administration (HEBSBA) offers a unique atmosphere where regional charm meets a cosmopolitan culture. Students can expect a practical education that emphasizes a global reach with respect to international and cultural understanding. The HEBSBA offers high-quality undergraduate programs steeped in the UIW traditions of faith, service, innovation, truth, and education.
The general business curriculum allows students desiring a broad background in business administration to design their own area of emphasis, with the approval of their adviser. Degree requirements are designed to develop proficiency and confidence in the functional areas of business. In addition to providing the technical skills required for a professional level business position, the ethical considerations of business are emphasized. Students will select a specialization area as part of the degree program.
The international business program encourages students to take advantage of the many on-campus student organizations and study abroad opportunities offered through the school of business. Joining an on-campus organization like the Business Club, allows business students to meet one another, seek leadership positions, and network with experienced business faculty and community leaders.
Participation in the Business Club and Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society is strongly encouraged. Through these organizations, students ply their skills while working on organization sponsored projects and events that are designed for the purpose of helping those less fortunate in the local community.
Networking with the local business community is possible through these student organizations, by attending the Mexican American Business Institute (MABI), the Free Trade Alliance, World Affairs Council, and Chamber of Commerce events, key supporters of the HEBSBA Business Plan Competition.
