Your Future In business

In the College of Business at the University of North Texas, we have many goals. The most important one is helping you develop the capabilities, knowledge and character needed for a successful business career.

Our growing list of business alumni include chief executive officers of major international and national companies, successful entrepreneurs, partners in accounting and law firms, bank presidents and leaders of nonprofit organizations. Join the next generation of business leaders by earning a bachelor’s degree from UNT.

What we offer

The college provides rigorous course work leading to either a Bachelor of Business Administration degree or a Bachelor of Science degree in a variety of areas. The B.S. is a more technical, specialized degree than the B.B.A. However, both degrees require you to complete many of the same general business courses.

You can study:

  • Accounting
  • Aviation Logistics
  • Business Computer Information Systems
  • Business Integrated Studies
  • Decision Sciences
  • Economics
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Logistics and Supply Chain Management
  • Marketing
  • Operations and Supply Chain Management
  • Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management
  • Real Estate
  • Risk, Insurance and Financial Services

We also offer a five-year combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program in Accounting, allowing you to earn both degrees simultaneously.

In addition to completing required courses, you can earn academic credit through internships and study abroad opportunities.

Faculty members utilize a “learn today, apply tomorrow” classroom philosophy. They are dedicated teachers and nationally recognized professionals who remain current on issues through research.

You can network with business professionals through various student organizations including the Association for Information Systems Student Chapter, the Alpha Kappa Psi professional business fraternity and the Beta Alpha Psi international honor society.

A Residents Engaged in Academic Living Community (REAL Community) brings business students who live on campus together to enhance academic and social experiences.

We sponsor several scholarships to help you pursue your education.
