Bauer College’s MBA program stands alongside the nation’s best, says PolicyMic.

Political news site PolicyMic recently included the MBA program at the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston on its list of “5 Business Schools Just as Great as Harvard and Wharton,” citing its ties to Houston’s booming economy, average starting salaries of graduates and experiential learning opportunities available to Bauer students.

The list, published on Aug. 14, was designed to provide a list of universities whose business schools prepare students “just as well as more highly touted Ivy League universities with tuition at least half of the annual $56,175 HBS price tag”.

“We have long been considered one of the best kept secrets in Houston,” said Dean Latha Ramchand. “But as our programs grow and the Bauer brand becomes nationally and internationally recognized, the secret is out. Our students receive an unmatched education, both in the classroom and through extracurricular activities and events designed to stimulate engagement and involvement. They go on to become active alumni who power the engine driving the Houston economy, one of the most robust in the nation.”

Also making the PolicyMic list were BYU Marriott School of Management, Manderson Graduate School of Business at University of Alabama, San Diego State University College of Business Administration and CUNY Baruch College Zicklin School of Business.

Launched in 2011, PolicyMic is a Harlem-based startup that averages over 5 million unique visitors each month. Their global news brand prides itself on high quality analysis and an incredibly engaged community, which includes contributors in over 45 countries.
