PrintLife-changing opportunities, small classes, engaging and concerned faculty, and student activities for every interest: these are the highlights of the Archie W. Dunham College of Business at Houston Baptist University (HBU).

The mission of the Archie W. Dunham College of Business is to serve Christ by building innovative leaders of character, empowering them to actively engage in the development of their organizations, communities, and society.

In the Archie W. Dunham College of Business, we develop innovative leaders of character. Our programs – undergraduate and graduate – are centered on preparing you to be successful in the career to which you are called. You will receive thorough and personal preparation in our academic programs, from faculty who are experts in a variety of business disciplines, holding high academic credentials and professional expertise. The HBU Business programs are not only about tools and skills, but also about ideas. While skills are necessary in the marketplace, ideas are critical for building the future. At HBU, we are committed to going beyond helping students to understand what is; we teach them how to consider what might be.

The Archie W. Dunham College of Business is a leader in business education in the Houston area. An important element in our students’ experience is the ongoing opportunity they have to connect and interact with leading Houston-area global businesses. The College’s majors and programs will give you a solid grounding in theory, ideas, and the added advantage of practical application of skills and knowledge through internships, travel abroad opportunities, and one-on-one contact with faculty who bring the highest academic and professional credentials to the classroom.
