The College of Business offers a comprehensive portfolio of programs at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level and unique centers of excellence in global entrepreneurship, financial services, information assurance and security and tourism management.   Our infrastructure assurance program has been named a Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education by the National Security Agency.   And, a Center for Global Entrepreneurship has been established to meet the educational and career needs of emerging market entrepreneurs and those who support them.

The UTSA College of Business excels in its international programs with Latin America and Asia. The college is leveraging these partnerships to provide global research, study and field experiences for our students and faculty.   Due to our close proximity to Mexico, the college has established partnerships with the North American Development Bank, which is housed in San Antonio, and the Free Trade Alliance.   We have also formed academic agreements with the Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM), the Universidad de Anahuac and the Universidad de Guadalajara.   In addition, the college sponsors the North American Summer School of Advanced Management exchange program with ITESM in Mexico City and the University of Calgary in Alberta to teach students about NAFTA as they study about business in the three countries.   Building on these strengths, a trilateral exchange program is being established with UTSA and universities in Latin America and China.
