The MBA program at the C. T. Bauer College of Business recently was recognized for boosting the career and salary prospects of its graduates, among other factors, landing in the top 50 in PayScale’s “College Salary Report” and jumping 16 places in the Financial Times’ “Top 100 Executive MBA Programs.”

The college’s MBA program came in at 37 on the PayScale salary report. The rankings included 162 colleges and used average alumni salary data. Among Bauer alumni, early career salaries averaged $72,600 and mid-career salaries at $129,500. This is the first year PayScale has included graduate programs in the rankings.

Up from last year’s ranking of 99, Bauer ranked 83 in the Financial Times’ Executive MBA list and ranked 12 globally among public business schools. Schools must meet strict criteria to be one of the 134 programs to be evaluated and is based on salary and career progress, work experience, post-graduation achievements, student diversity and faculty research productivity.

“Congratulations to our students, alumni, faculty, staff and the Houston community,” Bauer College Dean Latha Ramchand said. “These rankings are impressive and deserve to be celebrated, and Bauer College, as our students describe it, is a place ‘Where Awesome Happens’.”
