At Concordia University Texas, our unique combination of faith, learning, and life-changing experiences prepares our Business and Communication graduates to be leaders who are ready to make a difference in any arena they choose.
Professors excel at teaching our students the skills they need to be successful — critical thinking, creativity, communication, and leadership. Our faculty combine scholarship with real-world professional experience. Classes are small, so every student gets the attention they need. And students benefit from our close collaboration and partnership with the dynamic business community in Austin, Texas.
Students pursuing a Business degree explore a wide variety of disciplines, including accounting, finance, human resources, management and marketing. Students in the Communication program can cater their degree to interpersonal relationships, public relations and advertising, or visual communication (video editing, Adobe creative suite, etc.).
Concordia offers many opportunities to learn and grow outside of the classroom too. CTX DECA members compete in state and international competitions, presenting projects and findings to business and industry leaders. Students participate in the annual Persuasion Contagion, our university-wide persuasion speaking contest, for prizes. Through the University's entrepreneurial hub, IncubatorCTX, students have unprecedented access to networking opportunities with business and community leaders. And Business and Communication students have the opportunity to join multiple honor societies, including Lambda Pi Eta and Sigma Beta Delta.
