What is the return on investment in going back to school?  Latha Ramachand associate dean at the UH Bauer College of Business says 18-26 percent in future compensation if you’re getting an MBA. And no matter if your interest is engineering, art or sports, equipping yourself with an MBA sets yourself up for success.  Management skills will be critical for anyone’s continued professional development.

“We have two physicians in our E-MBA program,” she said.  “We have lawyers in the program.  We have someone from architecture. We have gymnasts in our program.  We have students with music degrees.” 

UH Bauer College of Business LogoThe Bauer College of Business has been recognized as the best evening MBA program in Houston by BusinessWeek and has been named to the Princeton Review’s “Student Opinion Honors for Business Schools.” The nationally acclaimed college includes studies that are unique to Houston, with courses specific to the energy industry, health care, entrepreneurship and real estate.  

“I think it’s very important to differentiate yourself and show the people around you that you bring something that’s very valuable that cannot be replaced, and that’s why it’s a good time to retool,” Ramachand said. 

The Bauer College of Business is part of what’s happening at the University of Houston.  I’m Marisa Ramirez.
