Bauer College’s undergraduate specialty programs rank high with students, BusinessWeek says.

The C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston received praise recently from BusinessWeek for the quality of several of its specialty programs at the undergraduate level. The publication includes Bauer’s international business, supply chain, management information systems, entrepreneurship and marketing programs in the top 50 in its list of “The Best Undergraduate Business Schools by Specialty 2013.”

“We are proud to be included in this list of top specialty programs among our business school peers,” Dean Latha Ramchand said. “At the Bauer College, we strive to add value to students’ degrees by offering a host of specialty programs and opportunities to connect to the business community.”

The list, released by BusinessWeek on June 24 determines how 123 undergraduate business schools, including Bauer College, rank in 14 specialty areas. The data was collected as part of the “2013 Best Undergraduate B-Schools” ranking, which asked students from the Class of 2013 to tell BusinessWeek, via an online survey, about the full range of their business school experience, from getting in to getting a job.

The specialty ranking is based on responses to a group of questions asking students to rank their program’s offerings in 14 areas, with points awarded for each response and averaged.

“The fact that this list was determined by student feedback helps to demonstrate that for us, every decision we make, including which programs to expand and add to the curriculum, is driven by what our students want and need,” Ramchand added.

BusinessWeek also ranked Bauer College in the top 50 overall among public undergraduate business programs in 2013.
