Executive MBA Ambassadors

Bauer EMBA Ambassadors help prospective classmates learn about the amazing opportunities that await them at the C. T. Bauer College of Business. They offer a real-life perspective about being a Bauer EMBA student and an insider's view of life in the classroom and beyond.

During the school year, the ambassadors host class visits and informal coffee talks. They also work closely with our Recruitment Office to host EMBA Orientation and Tours.

Our EMBA Ambassadors look forward to working with you and welcome your questions by phone, e-mail or in person.

Email: lmland@bauer.uh.edu

Program: EMBA

Concentration: Global Energy

Work Experience: 3 years in Health Care Administration, 8 years in Domestic Oil & Gas Drilling, 7 years in News Media and Communications.

Undergraduate University and Degree: Bachelor of Science in Journalism, University of Texas at Tyler.

Hometown: Weatherford, TX

Why Bauer? Why Houston? Houston is a city filled with opportunity. The people of Houston support one another and value a can-do attitude. It's a diverse community where hard work and dedication will earn you a good life. So when life threw me a curve ball and I found myself changing my professional direction, I chose to do it in Houston.

While I've worked in several industries and in various capacities, everything I've done has one thing in common - business. Once I realized I needed an advanced degree to move forward professionally, I chose to earn an MBA. In choosing a program, I wanted to experience the free flow of ideas with professors and students that only a traditional classroom could provide. And in choosing among the in-person options, I wanted a school that provided a network of alumni, students and faculty to carry me beyond graduation. This was a business decision, and I wanted to receive the best return on my investment. After evaluating my options based on cost, reputation, demographics, and academics, UH Bauer wasn't just the best decision, it was the only decision.
