International Business Residency (IBR)

All Bauer Executive MBA students travel internationally to learn about and experience a foreign country’s business practices and culture.

The International Business Residency (IBR) prepares students for the effect the global marketplace will have on their companies and their careers. The experience includes company visits, meetings with political figures and team networking opportunities to fully learn about the country.

 


 

Professors of Practice

The faculty at Bauer is the ideal combination of academia and industry professionals. As some of the leading researchers in their respective fields, our faculty know that the best research is not only research that is grounded in rigorous academic training, but that also makes a creative and substantive contribution to the field. In addition to academia, our faculty also consists of former senior management executives in the industries students aspire to, offering a powerful blend of real-world experience.

 


 

Full-Service Campus

The University of Houston’s 667-acre campus offers all the amenities that are afforded a Tier one institution, including a state of the art recreational center, various performance halls and a brand new football stadium. The C. T. Bauer College of Business is housed within 4 beautiful buildings on campus and our graduate students have access to private breakout rooms, classrooms and an EMBA lounge.

The Power of a Bauer MBA

Dow Chemical Co., EMBA ‘18

“For a long time I was considering getting my EMBA. I talked with my wife, looked at a lot of options, and I didn’t feel like it was the right time with my kids being young,” he said. “Now that they’re a bit older, we finally decided that it was the right time to apply. I couldn’t do it without my wife, making the sacrifices she made. It started with her support and the support of our kids.”

Wal-Mart, EMBA ‘14

“One of the best parts of the EMBA program was learning to work in teams. Understanding team dynamics and trying to get four to five strong-willed individuals to work in unison definitely teaches the art of leadership. That was one of the more challenging, but fun and rewarding experiences.”

Mercedes Benz Sugar Land, EMBA ‘11

“When you sit in a room with people that are smarter than you and have more experience than you, you can’t help but just absorb and soak it in. It’s nothing a textbook was going to teach me. That’s why I did the Bauer EMBA program . That’s what I invested in — to play with the big boys.”

“After 20 years in management, it was time to broaden my perspective. What I learned through the Bauer EMBA Program, better prepared me to meet and overcome daily challenges as a leader. And more importantly, it inspired me to set higher goals and expectations for myself and my organization.”
