Student Life

Typical isn’t a good word to describe accounting students at the University of Houston. Our BBA Accounting, CAP, MSACCY and PhD students come from different backgrounds and from all over the world, from Texas to the People’s Republic of China. This diversity creates a more challenging and rewarding experience for students.

Our students have a drive to succeed and often balance work and school. They’re not here just to learn in the classroom, but also learn outside a classroom setting. By actively participating in student organizations and case competitions students are able to learn from top professionals in the field of accounting, giving them the experience needed to be successful in the business world. In addition to these student life opportunities, new MSACCY students can participate in our mentor program designed to help them acclimate to their first semester of graduate school.
