The University of Houston is a major urban university, committed to academic excellence, and located on a 550-acre campus three miles from downtown Houston. With an enrollment of about 46,000 students representing more than 130 nations, the University of Houston is one of the most ethnically diverse research universities in the United States and seeks to recruit and retain a diverse community of scholars.

According to leading business magazines like Kiplinger’s, Business Week, and Forbes, Houston is the Best Place to Live, Work and Play; the Best U.S. City to Earn a Living; the Best City to Buy a Home, and the Best City for Recent College Graduates. The low cost of living enables a high quality of life, where one can have suburban living in the heart of a great metropolis. Houston is also The Energy Capital of the World, second only to New York City in the number of Fortune 500 company headquarters, a major healthcare center, and home of the largest US port in total foreign trade and imports.
Houston is home to the Texas Medical Center (TMC) comprised of over 60 institutions, 120,000 employees, and provides care to over 10 million patients each year on this main campus. The GDP for the Texas Medical Center is over $22 billion, which would make it the eighth-largest business district in the United States and 3rd largest business ecosystem. More research is done in this campus than anywhere in the world, so people come to TMC to produce breakthrough research, and much of the research of many of the drugs that are discovered happens on this campus. TMC is in the process of creating a comprehensive ecosystem to translate discovery into advancing human care. Opportunities for research at the intersection of technology, information systems, and healthcare abound in the collaboration that the C T Bauer college is forging with TMC.
Of the world’s 100 largest non-U.S. based corporations, more than half have operations in Houston. The vibrant Houston business community provides Bauer College of Business faculty members with exceptional opportunities for conducting collaborative industry research.
