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.”
Houston Public Media, EMBA ‘17
“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.”
T.H. Hill Associates, EMBA ‘17
“Given my military background, where teamwork is essential, I knew that my prior experiences would increase my chances of success in the Bauer EMBA Program’s group-focused environment.”
