Baylor University, a popular Southern institution located halfway between Dallas and Austin, appeals to those looking for “a small program” with “a cozy atmosphere” and “a lot of emphasis on ethics.” With both a concentration and a dual degree program in healthcare administration, Baylor is also a strong draw for those looking to make their mark in the nation’s transforming healthcare sector. Those students have high praise for the program, asserting that “it will be ranked among the top programs” soon. “Hospital CEOs speak to our class approximately nine times per semester,” writes one student, extolling the “incredible healthcare administration speaker series.” The program includes a placement experience during which students “work directly with a CEO and become an actual hospital administrator for seven months.”

There’s more than healthcare to Baylor, though. MBAs call the strategy and organizational behavior courses here “some of the best in the country.” Students also tell us that the program provides “the freedom and opportunity to engage in any activity that would benefit your personal development.” “Whether it’s spending an entire day with Warren Buffett, working in China for a semester with top global firms, traveling to Austin every Friday to learn and explore capital investment analysis, or going to a local prison to decrease the recidivism rate by going over business plans with inmates, you can do it at Baylor,” one student writes. Another cites an MBA class devoted to inter-program case competition, for which Baylor not only offers a course but also pays participants’ cost of participation, including “room, entry fee, flight, etc.” (The team took third prize at the competition hosted by George Washington University in 2010.) Business education neophytes praise the Integrated Management Seminar, “a semester specifically designed for non-business undergrads to provide a fabulous foundation before the core MBA program begins.”
