Office of Global Initiatives
Leading-edge, student-centered education with a global mindset
Houston's business school is uniquely positioned to provide a world-class business education with a global perspective to our students, faculty and community. The Office of Global Initiatives will leverage our diverse and global business community, the momentum of the University of Houston and our unique location on the Third Coast of the United States as a gateway to the world, to expand our global offerings and footprint.
The Office of Global Initiatives is a resource to promote and support programs that develop a global mindset embedded across Bauer. Recognizing that we live in a globally interconnected world with tremendous opportunities, Bauer students will have access to global courses, study abroad, exchanges and unique experiences to build and develop their global perspective and mindset.
“If globalization is to succeed, it must succeed for poor and rich alike. It must deliver rights no less than riches. It must provide social justice and equity no less than economic prosperity and enhanced communication.”
–Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations
