Students may study for a career as a dental assistant, medical assistant, patient care technician, or a medical billing and coding specialist. Upon completion of their respective programs, students will be awarded a diploma.
The Texas School of Business is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).
Faculty members at the Texas School of Business are professionals in their field, bringing real-world knowledge and experiences with them to the classroom. Instructors aim to provide students with the technical skills and knowledge that they need to enter the workforce in an entry-level position. Instruction includes both classroom learning and hands-on lab experiences.
The Texas School of Business is a commuter school and does not offer on-campus housing facilities.

The school's focus on career skills enables students to study only the material that is relevant to their careers, allowing students to graduate in a relatively short period of time. Academic tutoring and advising is available. Students have the option of participating in the Kaplan Certified Professional program, a business skills building course, at no additional cost. The Career Services Department also offers resume writing, career guidance, and job search strategies. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
