See what students say:


The University of Texas at San Antonio, or simply UTSA, is a school “developing rapidly in the UT system, and the College of Business is one of the top business schools in the South.” With a “high reputation” for top-notch “finance and marketing courses,” “generous scholarships,” and “great professors,” UTSA benefits greatly from the “UT name” and is a place where students are encouraged to “develop their own career paths.” A good portion of students also mention that UTSA is a “conveniently located” and “relatively inexpensive” option for MBA students. One student with a concentration in supply chain/operations management tells us, “[my] coworkers graduated from UTSA and [gave it a] good recommendation.”

Like a lot of large business schools, UTSA MBA candidates have both praise and criticism for their faculty. According to one student, of the 109 faculty members currently working in the business school, all are “excellent, with outstanding academic knowledge and contributions.” But another student says, “Professors are quick to tell you they are only here for the research money and that they don’t like teaching students . . . Professors are quick to judge and often make discouraging comments about the students who struggle.” Given the feedback we have received, the consensus seems to be that “this school has really tried to attract great faculty and support them in teaching.” In turn, while UTSA continues to grow in both size and reputation within the UT system, there is a balance of “great” professors, who infuse their courses with a “heavy research aspect,” and others who “don’t have any business teaching.”

The College of Business at UTSA offers a flexible MBA (students can attend part time or full time). Students can choose a general MBA (no concentration) or an MBA in a variety of eleven concentrations. Additional degree options include an Executive MBA (designed for seasoned executives, professional, and entrepreneurs), a Ph.D. in business administration, and a Ph.D. in applied statistics. Discipline based Master ’s programs include a master of arts in economics; master of science degrees in applied statistics, finance, finance with real estate concentration, information technology, information technology with a cyber security concentration, and management of technology—all of which are thirty-three-credit hour programs. UTSA also offers a master of accountancy degree, which is thirty credit hours. In addition to the school’s vast academic arsenal, the College of Business offers international immersion programs in Brazil, the Canary Islands, Chile, China, Finland, Italy, Morocco, Singapore, Spain and Vietnam. In short, UTSA MBA candidates have “attended programs all over the world.”
