Davies College of Business – University of Houston-Downtown - Full-Time MBA

Full-Time MBA Program Structure

UHD Daviesfull-time MBA program enables students to earn an MBA degree in one year. Depending on the concentration selected, students must complete 34 to 39 semester hours to complete the MBA program. Each semester consists of two eight-week terms.

Each MBA core class meets for two hours a week from 6 p.m. to 7:50 p.m. or from 8 p.m. to 9:50 p.m. for eight weeks. Concentration classes meet one night a week from 7 p.m. to 9:50 p.m.

UHD School of Business also operates under a team-teaching approach. Each course is taught by two teachers – a College of Business professor and a “Corporate Fellow,” a seasoned expert from the corporate community, and results in students gaining a comprehensive understanding of both theory and practice.

MBA students also take core classes in strategic management, managerial accounting and budgeting, marketing management, managerial finance, management of the supply chain, management of information systems, managerial decision making, managerial economics, management of organization behavior, as well as a capstone course.
