Since 1979, UTSA’s Institute for Economic Development has been building the economy, one business at a time.
The University of Texas at San Antonio’s Institute for Economic Development currently hosts multiple centers and programs that facilitate economic, community and business development at the local, regional and national levels. These programs serve the entrepreneur who is just starting a business to the experienced business owner looking for new markets to communities seeking to improve their economic climate.
The Institute’s diverse program portfolio is directed by Robert McKinley, UTSA Senior Associate Vice President for Economic Development. Within UTSA’s institutional structure, we are housed in the Office of the Vice President for Community Services, lead by Vice President Jude Valdez.
The UTSA Institute for Economic Development is dedicated to creating jobs, growing businesses and fostering economic development. Our centers and programs provide professional business advising, technical training, research, market analysis, and strategic planning for entrepreneurs, business owners and community leaders. Last year, we served over 36,000 clients.
Our programs serve San Antonio, the Texas-Mexico border area as well as regional, national and international stakeholders. Together with federal, state and local governments, and private businesses, the UTSA Institute for Economic Development fosters economic and community development in support of UTSA’s community engagement mission.
Our experienced Business Advisors offer clients the benefits of practical experience and proven ability in many areas, including accounting, agribusiness, economic development, finance, human capital, international business, legal issues, management, marketing, manufacturing, non-profit organizations, procurement, and technology. Our advisors meet the highest ethical standards of confidentiality with their clients.
Economic development has been an integral component of UTSA for over 35 years, highlighted by the Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) partnership with UTSA. The EDA supported UTSA’s first community economic development programs, which have developed into the UTSA Institute for Economic Development. Our executive offices and most of our programs are headquartered on the UTSA Downtown Campus. The institute is a core program in UTSA’s advancement toward a Tier One university, providing excellence in teaching, research and community engagement.
