Bauer MS Ambassadors

Bauer MS 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 MS 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 chats. They also work closely with our Recruitment Office to host Orientation and Tours. Our MS Ambassadors look forward to working with you and welcome your questions by phone, email, or in person.

Why Bauer? Why Houston? The MS Finance program at Bauer is very customizable. The program has a vast number of course offerings, and many options to follow particular fields in finance (i.e., Energy Finance, Corporate Finance, Investments). This allowed me to select courses that best fit my interest and career path. Although Houston has already established itself as a large city, it continues to develop substantially year over year. This has led to a large growth in career opportunities in a variety of industries, and is one of the main reasons I decided to continue my education and career in Houston.
