Why Accounting at TWU?

Accredited and highly ranked

The College of Business is now accredited from AACSB InternationalAACSB accredited logo —The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), considered the world’s leading association of business schools. Less than 6% of business schools worldwide have earned this distinction.

Texas Woman’s also ranks 6th (tied) among U.S. universities for diversity, according to U.S. News & World Report.

A private school education at a public school price

Part of the Texas Woman’s experience is keeping costs low and education quality high:

  • No. 2 in the state for adding value to student’s earning potential, according to The Economist Magazine
  • 4th among all Texas public universities at keeping total college costs down, according to College for All Texans

TWU does more to build women leaders

Only 5.4 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women, and only 25 percent of senior managers and executives within those companies are women. TWU is working to help change that.

More than 70 percent of our faculty and staff across the university are women. While COB faculty prepare you to tackle the male-dominated world of business, our outreach staff work closely with employers to bring networking and employment opportunities to campus.

For our budding entrepreneurs, TWU’s Center for Women in Business is the state’s only university center dedicated to women’s entrepreneurship and business ownership. The Center provides tools for you to succeed including access to training/coaching, funding, mentoring and networking opportunities.

The Career Center has also implemented Handshake, a unique resume reviewing and job opening database that works to fast-track your job search.
