About University of Houston-Victoria: School of Business Administration
A Closer Look at UHV
The University of Houston-Victoria is located in Victoria, Texas, the commerce and entertainment center of the Texas Coastal Bend region. Pioneer charm and high-tech industry mingle in the city of 62,000 inhabitants near the Gulf of Mexico on a popular coastal route between Houston and Mexico. Victoria is within a two-hour drive from Houston, Austin, Corpus Christi and San Antonio. As the third-oldest chartered city in Texas, Victoria has many beautiful, historic Victorian structures and homes. Additionally, Victoria's economy has grown to become the regional hub for neighboring businesses and industries.
The University of Houston-Victoria shares a campus with the Victoria College. The UHV campus includes the University Center, completed in spring 2000, which contains classrooms, offices, and media and computer labs, and University West, which houses classrooms and faculty and administrative offices. In 2004, a 14,000-square-foot expansion to the University West building was completed. The Jaguar Hall and Jaguar Court residence halls for underclassmen are a short, 10-minute walk to the main campus.
In the 1960s, the citizens of the Victoria area realized... that greater opportunities were needed in higher education. No institution within a hundred-mile radius offered baccalaureate and master’s degrees. Many junior college students and graduates in the region wanted to continue studying beyond an associate degree, and a growing number of people who had bachelor’s degrees were anxious to pursue master’s degrees. To meet those needs, UHV opened in 1973.
UHV is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
The University of Houston-Victoria is one of four universities in the University of Houston System. The primary role of UHV is to provide undergraduate and graduate instruction to students within and beyond the Texas Coastal Bend region.
UHV is governed by a Board of Regents and the Chancellor of the University of Houston System. Administrative responsibility is vested in the UHV President.
The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to approximately 60 degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, and Education, Health Professions, and Human Development. A faculty of experts at UHV gives students individual attention to help them succeed, whether learning in a classroom or online. UHV offers face-to-face classes at two UH System teaching centers in Fort Bend County, in addition to its home campus in Victoria, and online courses that students can take anywhere. Since its founding in 1973, UHV has provided students with quality university education from exceptional faculty at a great value.
