General Business B.S.

Learn the Skills to Launch Your Career

Discover broad-based skills across the business landscape by earning a Bachelor of Science in General Business from University of Houston-Clear Lake. Even more, you’ll learn these skills at a university whose College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International.

This degree program is powered by the question: “What are you most passionate about?” Whether you are an entrepreneur launching a start-up, the managerial type who can help someone run a successful business, or something in between, we want to help you succeed. You can mix and match courses from across the College of Business that fit your interests and goals so you can learn all possible facets of operating a prosperous enterprise.

A Broad-based Education Gives You the Power

A general business degree from UHCL prepares you for positions in banking, financial services, management, purchasing, sales and more. Many of the courses for this degree are accessible online, but you must first complete your core courses in the traditional classroom environment (or transfer to UHCL with those classes on your transcript).

Campus organizations will help you make connections for long-term goals including such student organizations as Beta Alpha Psi, the International Honorary Organization for Financial Information professionals and the UHCL Accounting Association/Institute of Management Accounting Student Chapter.
