UHCL is one of only two universities in Houston with separate accreditation for its business and accounting programs from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International Accreditation – the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. We are also one of 14 Texas universities to hold AACSB accreditation in accounting.

In addition, the Zeta Upsilon Chapter recently received international recognition as a Superior Chapter, along with a $500 award, from the Beta Alpha Psi Board of Directors. Under the leadership of Professor Randall Xu, the Zeta Upsilon Chapter far exceeded the baseline requirements of Beta Alpha Psi and excelled in the areas of academics, professionalism and leadership during the 2019-2020 academic year.
