IMG_6960At a private university nestled in the heart of the 2nd largest city in Texas, San Antonio, the School of Business and Administration offers a unique atmosphere where regional charm meets a cosmopolitan culture. Students can expect a practical education that emphasizes a global reach with respect to international and cultural understanding. The HEBSBA offers high-quality undergraduate programs steeped in the UIW traditions of faith, service, innovation, truth, and education.

The Marketing Program is designed for students who plan to assume managerial responsibilities in the broad field of marketing disciplines, such as advertising, brand management, consumer behavior, marketing management, market research, not-for-profit marketing, retailing, sales, and services marketing. Today’s dynamic global environment requires not only that Marketing graduates understand the impact of “how and why” consumers buy products and services, but also that they are aware of and appreciate domestic and global social issues and the role of business in solving them. Our graduates understand the importance of being able to apply marketing concepts and tools in a dynamic problem-solving context. Likewise, our Marketing students develop the analytical, critical thinking, communication, teamwork, and leadership skills that are needed in the 21st Century marketplace as well as the ability to think creatively and act ethically to address issues of concern in the ever-changing business world.

Enhancing the Academic Experience

BCOutside the classroom, Marketing students have a range of activities to engage in that will supplement their in-class learning, provide them the chance to hone their marketing, communication, interpersonal, and leadership skills, and promote personal growth and development.

Participation in the UIW chapter of the American Marketing Association, Business Club, and Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society is strongly encouraged. DMDThrough these organizations, students ply their marketing skills while working on organization sponsored projects and events that are designed for the purpose of helping those less fortunate in the local community.

Networking with the local business community is possible through these student organizations, by attending the Mexican American Business Institute (MABI), the Free Trade Alliance, World Affairs Council, and Chamber of Commerce events, key supporters of the HEBSBA Business Plan Competition. With over 90 sister schools, UIW provides students an eclectic array of options for doing study abroad.
