Why Bauer? Why Houston? I was looking for an MS program focused on Digital Marketing. The choice of electives, customized curriculum, world class faculty and hands-on learning experience encouraged me to apply. In addition to networking opportunities through multiple events, the Google Online Marketing Challenge at Bauer is a unique opportunity to get experiential learning and interact with the industry experts. Houston, being the most ethnically diverse city in the United States and home to multiple Fortune 500 companies was my first choice. The low cost of living makes it even better!

Why Bauer? Why Houston? Job opportunities initially brought my wife and I to Houston. We absolutely love the city of Houston and all that it has to offer. Houston is a hub for rich culture and diversity, is abundant with a wide span of career opportunities, and truly has something for everybody, from shops, to museums, to boardwalks by the bay/sea. I applied to the Bauer College of Business because of the exemplary reputation of the school, the faculty, and the Supply Chain Management program. In addition, I greatly admired the University's focus on diversity among its student population and its program offerings and its, "student-centric," attitude that truly makes every student from any walk of life feel accepted and at home. Through my academic career at the University of Houston, thus far, I have learned a great wealth of extremely valuable information and I have acquired and mastered new highly useful skills that are being sought after by all of today's largest companies and top employers. I can truly say that applying to, (and being accepted into), the MS Supply Chain Management program at the University of Houston is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
