Cullen Distinguished Chair


Welcome to the C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston, where The Future Is Our Business!

Here, we shape the world of business, tomorrow, through leading-edge programs and innovative thinking, today.

The Future is Our Business

Three years ago, we launched the 2020-2025 Strategic Plan, a bold plan to transform lives, advance organizations and better society. We developed our brand, “The Future Is Our Business,” encouraging an environment where innovation can flourish by facilitating an exciting conversation where students, faculty and staff, alumni and the business community can come together collaboratively to facilitate exploration and innovation.

Over the last year, we achieved our best rankings ever to jump into the Top 50 national and global rankings in most key areas, establishing Bauer as a tour de force in research and programs. We also experienced a tremendous enrollment growth and near perfect placement, retention, and graduation rates, and we have been recognized in the Top 10 business schools with the highest number of women (#1), first-generation college students (#4) and minorities (#9). These and other achievements are aligned with our overarching goal to be a world-class business school, among the very top in the nation.

We have reached new heights, and we will continue our hard work to take Bauer College to the next level of excellence, because The Future Is Our Business!

Best regards,
