FACTS ABOUT THE BBA PROGRAM

Dr. Bexley teaching

The BBA in Banking and Financial Institutions is the most tenured accredited under-graduate degree in Banking in the United States. The program brings the student the best practical experience with academic training from faculty with banking experience. The latest technology is offered in the banking center, including teleconferencing, internet connections at each table, LED picture wall, and stock ticker quotes delayed only 15 minutes from Wall Street.

Over 1200 students have been placed as interns. The banking and regulatory internships allow the student to receive college credit and earn money while learning the banking industry.

Over 1000 students have been placed in full-time banking or regulatory positions upon graduation.

The Banking and Finance Club is available to all Banking and Finance majors. This group meets on a monthly basis bringing in industry leaders to speak and network with students. The Chair of Banking partners with RMA Texas Chapter in a Mentorship Program providing mentors for students that are members of the club.

The Banking and Finance majors participate in an annual field trip to the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Houston Branch, for a tour and reception with Bank Executives and RMA Members. This event, implemented in Fall 2006, has developed into an annual event each fall semester with a group of approximately 80 students and 40 bank executives attending each year.
