10 Podcasts Every MBA
Student Needs to Listen To 
By Stephan Maldonado

These days, it seems like you’re either a podcast person, or you’re not a podcast person. If you are (or you’re trying to be), you know that the sheer number of options is kind of mind-boggling. Everybody has a podcast, and you can find one for any topic that interests you—from politics and the arts to hobbies and television shows (HBO just launched one for Watchmen , and I wasn’t a podcast person until this morning).

Meet the team from the MBA Office who are your first point of contact in getting into the graduate program at UHD. They work hard for your continued success throughout your MBA journey.  
1) How long with UHD? I’ve been at UHD for two months. I’m still the new kid on the block.  

2) What you love about your job?   I enjoy guiding prospective students to complete their application. Some prospective students are not sure if they are ready to pursue the MBA – specifically, those whose undergrad degree is not business. I use my experience through graduate school to convince them that they are ready and inform them of the myriad support in the College of Business.  

3) What you didn’t know about me that may surprise you!?   I am currently applying to become a member of the Chickasaw Nation.
4) Hometown?   I’m a native Houstonian!
5) Tip to make the MBA journey at UHD a little easier?   I recommend students connect with their cohort – they will be there through thick and thin – as well as their professors. Also, connect with advisors and coordinators in the Graduate Office. We are invested in the success of COB students.
