About the College of Business

Dynamic Professionals

At University of Houston-Clear Lake's College of Business, we prepare you for long-term success in a dynamic world marketplace.

Our students go on to become entrepreneurs, managers, accountants, lawyers and countless other professional roles. We also have faculty who serve as corporate consultants, textbook authors and internationally recognized researchers. One of our most unique resources is the Mock Trial Courtroom, completely furnished from a former courtroom for students in legal studies to practice their skills.

Networking Near and Far

During your studies, you'll have the chance to work closely with both local and global business leaders. From our degree programs at University of Houston-Clear Lake to courses in the Texas Medical Center to our global business program partnerships, you'll build relationships to foster your success. Our classes thrive on the diverse backgrounds, experiences and points of view of our faculty and students, preparing you to shine in any workplace.

Leadership for Tomorrow

We're training tomorrow's leaders, and that means we anticipate the needs of changing industries and a diverse workforce. In 2016, we launched an innovative MD-MBA Dual Degree Program with The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston to equip doctors for the business side of running their own practices. Our recently added Master of Business Administration sub-plan in sustainability prepares students for a business climate increasingly aware of environmental factors and impacts. Our online programs also draw national attention, allowing many of our students to pursue flexible degrees while continuing to hold full-time careers.
