I thoroughly enjoyed the Bauer Mini-MBA Program. It was thoughtfully structured for students and professionals of all levels. The program was a great refresher, offering stimulating and creative insights that helped me evaluate my business operations. The content was relevant and applicable, the professors were engaged and collaborative, and the pace of the classes kept me challenged but not overwhelmed. This was a great introduction to the various MBAs offered at Bauer. The Mini-MBA Program and the University of Houston will definitely be recommended to our organization members.
