Student Life

The student body at the University of Houston is “diverse, intelligent, compassionate, constructive, and strong” with most students being “between 25 and 35.” “Almost all have a career, and most are married or have family members that depend upon them,” says one student. The University has “all kinds of students from commuters to interna­tional students.” Students “come from all backgrounds, which gives the University much-needed diversity” and “enables discussions and an exchange of ideas from very different perspectives.” The University of Houston has an active campus, and there is plenty to do for students who stay on campus. However, most students in the business school are part-time and are “only on campus for class and the gym.” “Since the school is a commuter school, most students only see each other during class time.” “Most of the students are employed full time” and do not have much time to socialize. “Networking happens where you make it happen,” such as at the “large atrium and the Starbucks area where we usually meet and network.” Still, through classes, networking, and workgroups, the students bond. “My fellow classmates are my second family,” one student says.

Career

Students at Houston feel confident nearing graduation as “effective career placement services [is an] outstanding strength of the University of Houston!” “There are work­shops (resume building, interview skills, job-search strategies) available throughout each semester,” as well as “company visits, seminars, and job fairs.” “My experience with the Rockwell Career Center was exceptional,” one student says. “I thank them for helping me to land an excellent job in the oil and gas industry that I will be starting right after graduation.” Perhaps the biggest advantage of attending the University of Houston for business students is its location. “Houston is an economic epicenter of both energy and technology industries.” One thing to note is that “it’s much more difficult and stressful for full-time students to procure post-graduate employment, and internships are equal­ly hard to come by” as compared to the larger part-time program. About 45 percent of graduates find employment in the petroleum and energy industry. The mean base salary for recent graduates is about $65,000, and 77 percent of graduates find employment within three months of graduation. Prominent alumni include Mark Papa, Chairman and CEO, EOG Resources, Inc.; Karen Katz, President and CEO, Neiman Marcus Stores; Marvin Odum, President, Shell Oil Company; Zhigang Wang, Deputy Director, General China National Petroleum Corporation; David McClanahan, President and CEO, CenterPoint Energy.

Students Say

University of Houston’s C.T. Bauer College of Business has a “great business school rep­utation,” “excellent staff with great corporate experience, top notch facilities,” and is “strategically located in the oil and gas state.” Its location in Houston is a big draw for students, as “Houston is home to more Fortune-500 companies than any other U.S. city other than New York City,” and “the Bauer College of Business is well known in the Houston area.” Tuition is reasonable, and Bauer is known “for providing a quality edu­cation for an affordable price.” The “part-time, evening schedule allows full-time work, and an MBA in 30 months,” says one commercial construction student. “University of Houston is located in the heart of the energy hub of the world. It has some of the world’s best energy courses and a first-of-its-kind energy research institute,” and “many of the students and teachers have many years of experience in the oil and gas industry, finance industry, and other business-related industries.” “The business school itself is run very well and is very organized,” and everyone on staff “is very nice, helpful, and willing to do anything to satisfy their students’ experience at the College.” “The admin staff is very supportive and treats each one of the MBA candi­dates as individuals instead of reciting the same old FAQ.” The staff and professors are “very easy to access via email, phone, and meetings.” “The campus is a bit old,” though, so some buildings “could use some sprucing up.” “Amazing and admirable” professors abound who “care a lot about the students,” and most “have practical knowledge of business practices.” “Many professors would like to see UH ranked at the top with the likes of UT and A&M, therefore, they work hard to make sure their students have every opportunity to do well,” one student explains. A large number of professors “have a sur­prising amount of industry experience” and use their real-world experience to inform students and help with career prospects. “You know you can count on your professors for a helping hand if needed,” one happy student says. “You feel the love.” The School has “the best energy-focused MBA curriculum in the country,” and the University offers students flexibility. “Bauer College of Business was appealing to me because of its focus in the part-time program, excellent course work, and flexibility to help diversify my MBA experience,” a financial services student explains. “By allowing me to tailor my MBA to what my goals are, I take more exciting classes related to energy than your typ­ical finance/accounting classes.”
