“AOI has been working with Bauer College of Business at University of Houston for our management development program since 2016. From the beginning,the faculty staff clarified with us the problems we would like to address, who the target audiences were and the results we would to achieve at the end of the program. Per our needs,we had the opportunity to review the potential instructors' background and selected the right instructors for our learners. The instructors closely worked with us to design and develop the program, including the implementation of the program. At the end of each course, we shared the evaluation results from our learners with the instructor and the faculty for the improvement . Bauer College of Business is not just a supportive partner but also a professional consultant for HR Department and our management team. We will continue to work with Bauer College of Business for the next cycle of management development program in 2018 and 2019.”
