NEW R.W.E. Program (see below for more details)

-NEW- R.W.E. (Real World Experience) Projects Program

This is a Corporate Projects / Case Study Program:

  • Available starting Fall 2021 (Currently accepting projects for the 2021-2022 academic year)
  • This program will provide employers a new and different way to assess the skills of and build relationships with an extremely diverse group of students; as well as secure deliverables on a topic that is meaningful to the employer.
  • This program will allow undergraduate students to experience an experiential education experience that will improve their communication, teamwork and networking competencies while also allowing them the chance to build a connection with an employer
  • Projects are embedded into a for-credit class that has a required project
  • Projects are one semester in length and teams will be made up of 5-8 students
  • Students select the project that matches their interest (Project areas include: Market Research, Business Improvement, Analysis, Web/Social Media).
  • Corporate Projects: The employer provides a project topic relevant to their company and on which they would like have some research conducted and hear a new perspective from the next generation of business professionals. Students work with the company designated rep. and deliver recommendations, results and deliverables by the end of the semester.
  • Case Study: The topic is created by the students. An employer rep. consults with the students throughout the semester to keep them on track and productive. The level of engagement of the employer is much less than for Corporate Projects while still allowing for an employer, student connection.

Our Business Student Organizations

Looking For Opportunities for You Or Your Employees To Continue Their Education?

A graduate degree in business is one of the most valuable steps you can take to ignite your career. UHD has received over $18 million in Covid aid available to new graduate students this fall. Now is the time to start your MBA or Masters in Professional Accountancy (MPAC) before this money runs out. The time is now -- waiting another year just means the money will be spent and you will be a year older. It might cost you thousands of dollars to wait. - Dr. Charles Gengler, Dean, Marilyn Davies College of Business

For more information, click here for the MBA, and here for the MPAC.

Getting started with your degree is as simple as clicking here to start your application: ApplyTexas.
