A "2013 LEADERSHIP SERIES SALUTE" Goes out to the Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston for being named one of the "10 Most Popular B-Schools" in America

U.S. News Short List Puts Bauer College Among B-Schools Most Popular with Students

U.S. News recently released a list of the 10 Most Popular B-Schools, including the C. T. Bauer College of Business among the graduate business schools across the country with the highest yield rates, or percent of students who choose to enroll in an institution after being offered admission.

The ranking is part of the U.S. News Short List, which has previously included Bauer as one of the country’s “10 Least Expensive Public B-Schools for Out-of-State Students.” The most recent mention on the list analyzes nearly 500 business schools across the United States and notes the 10 schools with the highest yield of accepted students for the Fall 2012 semester.

U.S. News notes that Bauer’s yield rate of 72.8 percent is part of a large surge in popularity among public business schools, which make up six places in the top 10 list.

“This acknowledgment from U.S. News signifies not only the growth that we are seeing in our conversion rate at Bauer but also stands to show that the college is becoming a destination of first choice for students,” said Dean Latha Ramchand.
