University of Houston-Clear Lake  

At the UHCL School of Business,

We believe that a high caliber financial curriculum designed and taught by a well qualified faculty produces successful graduates who will make meaningful contributions to industry and society. We offer our graduate and undergraduate Finance degrees both in traditional classroom settings or online.


Our School of Business is accredited by AACSB International-The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Since only ten percent of business schools hold this accreditation, it’s no mystery why our finance graduates have joined top organizations ranging from Big Four consulting firms to Frito-Lay.


Our internship and co-op programs are great opportunities to create connections and get real-world experience before you graduate. In addition, Beta Alpha Psi, the International Honorary Organization for Financial Information professionals, and the UHCL Accounting Association/Institute of Management Accounting Student Chapter provide excellent networking opportunities for finance students.

Our Faculty

Our finance faculty consult, serve on boards, involve themselves in the community, continue to have active professional roles in their respective fields, publish, and do research in accordance with AACSB standards. They hold PhD’s and have worked as professionals in their chosen fields, bringing real-world business experience to their students. No finance classes are taught by graduate assistants.
