Students Say

University of Houston’s MBA program is perfect for “experienced professionals seeking a respected degree [yet unwilling to] break the bank.” The program’s curriculum affords students the “ability to customize [their] degree to [their] interests.” A grateful student clarifies, “They have set up the Bauer MBA Program to be much more like an undergrad program where you have all sorts of choices on how you want to pursue your MBA.” Of course, perhaps “the greatest strength of Bauer is [its] celebration of diversity.” Another thrilled student explains, “Each student/professor/faculty member brings a unique perspective from their own personal experience[s] and Bauer capitalizes on it.” Many are also quick to take advantage of the “great study abroad options [as well as] developmental organizations like the Red Lab, Cougar Venture club, Society for HR Management, etc.”

Students here are generally quite pleased with their “knowledgeable” professors. And they truly value the fact that their professors have “lots of real world experience to share.” Just as important, it’s also quite evident that Bauer professors are wholly invested in their students. As one impressed future MBA interjects, “I’ve taken a statistics course where the professor offer[ed] study review sessions on Sundays to ensure students who need[ed] additional help [had] the access.” Moreover, “professors routinely volunteer their time to host ‘Bauer Boot Camps’ on topics ranging from Excel mastery, introductory statistics, to understanding case methodology.” And while some students gripe about the administration, calling them “indifferent,” others assure us that “overall, the school is run very well.”

Students Say

Students at Bauer greatly appreciate that “the school has a large alumni [network],” which they eagerly tap into when it comes time to job hunt. Moreover, they can also easi- ly leverage the university’s “strong connections with major oil and gas companies within Houston.” And, perhaps most importantly, students have access to the “extraordinary” Rockwell Career Center. Indeed, Rockwell provides students with a range of indispen- sible services. The office organizes a number of workshops, career fairs and information sessions specifically tailored to MBAs. Bauer students are also granted access to the MBA Resume Book, a premier recruiting tool wherein students can market their talents and experience through an online resume book. And many MBA candidates benefit from On-Campus Recruiting (OCR), which helps connect students with potential employers.

Campus Life

Students Say

The MBA students at University of Houston are a busy lot. After all, many either “work part-time [or] are full-time .” Therefore, they appreciate the fact that Bauer makes “resources…readily available on weekends [and] late into the evening. This helps “to ensure that evening students have the same accommodations as the day time students.” Fortunately, we’re told that despite the workload “the social life is good.” On the other hand, we are also cautioned that “it’s up to you to mingle and make friends.” Thankfully, that shouldn’t prove too difficult. Indeed, “there’s a lot of camaraderie” amongst these MBAs. That’s certainly understandable given that Bauer students find their peers to be “encouraging and supportive.” And they do manage to occasionally find time to kick back. For example, “many students attend the football and basketball games since [they] get free admission and discounted guest tickets.” Additionally, as one might expect, “Saturdays in the fall [you can find] tailgating going on all over campus.” Lastly, MBA students here rave about their location. As one satisfied student regales us, “Houston is a great place to be whether it is you want to walk in the park, music festivals, or going out to eat. Not to mention, [the city] is the energy capital of the world along with having one of the world’s finest medical centers. Everything is very accessible.”
