Rice MBA Full Time Class of 2012

Choosing the Jones Graduate School of Business
Prior to starting the Rice MBA, I was working in Sony Japan (Tokyo) as a management trainee and Sony China (Shanghai) as a product marketing leader. While I did look at several other schools, I chose Rice for its high-quality academic reputation and strength in offering an energy concentration. The thing that has surprised me the most about this program are the countless offerings of networking opportunities. I hadn’t truly understood how important this part of managing my professional career was but the events and speaker series all provide me with so many chances to not only meet members of the business community but also gives me great practice with my social networking skills. This Rice MBA provides so much more than an outstanding academic experience. I know that I am gaining the perspectives and visions of a thought leader!
