  • Everyone from the professors to the staff, made the MS Business program top tier. The program was structured as a cohort and gave it a family feel. The education and relationships that I gained during the program will benefit me for the rest of my life. In comparison to other universities, UTSA created the program with the appropriate courses and highly qualified professors, but in a quicker and more affordable way.

  • Being a full time employee at H-E-B headquarters is living proof of the amazing experience I’ve had as an MS Business student! From the beginning of the program each and every professor set me up for success. I’ve gained a numerous amount of professional knowledge and practice to help me be successful in the workplace. The professors want to see you succeed and push you. The best thing is it’s designed for students who don’t come from your traditional business degree background!

  • I came into the MS Business program not knowing anything about management and business. After graduating, I realized how much I not only learned, but also how much I grew as a person and as a professional. The best part about my year in the program was the opportunity to interact and learn from a diverse group of students who came from a variety of different backgrounds, and the quality of the faculty and professional development that we had at our disposal.
