Our Professional MBA is a part time program designed for working professionals who want to continue their careers and earn their degrees at the same time and at their own pace.
The evening MBA program is our most flexible option; students take courses in the evening and can take full advantage of our resources, including our study abroad programs, full-service Rockwell Career Center and all networking and experiential learning opportunities. Our curriculum allows you to dedicate more than half of your courses to electives and optional certificates. You'll apply classroom knowledge to your workplaces on a daily basis — creating an immediate return on investment.
Evening & Part-time Flexibility
The Professional MBA Program offers a flexible schedule that is geared toward full-time working professionals. Professional MBA students attend classes at night, allowing them the opportunity to work full-time during the day. Though the program is part-time, students are able to take full advantage of all the resources offered to full-time students at the C.T. Bauer College of Business.
Professional MBA students are able to customize their learning experience with a wide-range of certificate options and more than 100 MBA elective course offerings. Students have the opportunity to select certificates in the field of Energy, Marketing, Leadership, or Finance.
The Rockwell Career Center is dedicated specifically to the needs of Bauer MBA students and offers coaching, resume writing, interviewing, and job search strategy. The Rockwell Career Services staff is primed to help you maximize the return on your education investment.

The Power of a Bauer MBA
Marie Flanigan Interiors, PMBA ‘10
“Every Professional MBA class was spent listening to speakers who were the best in their areas in the city – the best event planner, the best direct mail person, the best social media adviser. I could not take enough notes.”
8th Wonder Brewery, PMBA ‘11
Co-founded in 2013 by Bauer College MBA alumnus Ryan Soroka, 8th Wonder has scaled rapidly into a craft beer brand that can be found in supermarkets, bars and restaurants across Houston, recently opening a nearby distillery for gin, vodka and whiskey.
SP+, PMBA ‘11
“I wanted to have more credibility, have that marketing and business knowledge to be able to make all of those things I was already doing make more sense.”
PricewaterhouseCoopers, PMBA, ‘15
“Building relationships helped me get integrated into the Professional MBA Program more quickly, and it meant I was able to get involved in a more meaningful way, rather than just showing up and going to class.”

“The Bauer MBA helped me to think strategically,” Luis said. “My undergrad degree in hotel restaurant management gave me a good background for operations, but going to grad school at Bauer showed me the bigger picture in terms of marketing, finances and running this business.”
