Visitors

Executive Speakers

Every year, business leaders (including some alumni) visit Bauer College to share their experiences and insight with students. These speakers are part of established lecture series at the college, including “Inspiring Minds” and the Distinguished Leaders Series presented by AGL Resources and its Houston-based companies, or are invited guests in various Bauer classes.
