  • Introduction and General Information

    The College of Business Administration at The University of Texas at El Paso shares with the University its fundamental mission to provide quality higher education to the citizens of El Paso and the West Texas region, to prepare them to function effectively in society, and to contribute to the quality of life in this community and region. The border location of the University and College provides an environment that affords opportunities for students to become knowledgeable in Inter-American economic, business, and cultural matters within the context of a business school education comparable to that provided by other accredited institutions. The College is committed to providing the widest possible access to quality higher education to allow our students to become competitive on a local, regional, national, and international level. Therefore, the goal of the College is to provide:

    • Broad-based programs which give students the background for entry into, and advancement in, professional and managerial positions, and for life-long career success.
    • Intellectual contributions that improve application of existing knowledge in regional businesses and industries and the border economy, as well as nationally and worldwide; enhance the delivery of instruction to students; and extend the boundaries of knowledge.
    • Service which contributes to meeting the personal and professional needs of our students, the University, alumni, community, and academia.
    Our quality is reflected in the success of our students, alumni, and faculty and in the enhancement of the personal and professional lives of community residents.

    The College also meets an important secondary responsibility as a partner in the U.S.-Mexican community of the region. Many individuals engaged in business enroll in selected courses in order to gain specific skills or to broaden their knowledge. In addition, the faculty of the College of Business Administration participates in the Division of Professional and Continuing Education, which offers a wide variety of non-credit programs including programs for the business practitioner. CEDARS (Centers for Entrepreneurial Development Advancement, Research and Support), through the activities of The Family and Closely-Held Business Forum and The Franchise Center, nurtures an environment to develop, advance, support, and transfer proven strategies and techniques in business principles and practices that will provide for effective and efficient entrepreneurial ventures and support in both local and international markets.

    At the heart of all these programs is a distinguished faculty committed to teaching, research, and community services. Their work, as well as that of their students, is supported by the superb facilities of the College of Business Administration. The College of Business provides a Computer Application Learning Center (CALC) laboratory that is the focal point of computer, audiovisual, and multimedia-based learning, including three microcomputer laboratories.

    The undergraduate program in the College leads to the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree. Graduate programs lead to the Master of Business Administration (MBA), the Master of Accountancy (MAcc), and other degree programs. The BBA, the MBA, and the MAcc and are accredited by AACSB--the International Association for Management Education.
