Rice MBA Full Time Class of 2013

About Me:
I founded and managed a medical practice, and own a medical staffing company. I closed the medical practice, but continue to operate the staffing company. The practice was both stressful and boring (I was burnt out on the industry) which is not a good combination. The pay-off of staying down that career path was not worth it, so I knew it was time to come back to school.

Choosing the Jones Graduate School of Business:
After I attended the “Day in the life” program I knew Rice was the right school for me. I felt so incredibly welcomed by the admissions staff and current students. The attention given to me during the application process made picking Rice an easy choice!

The Value of the Rice MBA to me is…
…Graduating from a school with a stellar reputation, and knowing I received an excellent education. The professors here are great, and driven to make Rice a top business school.
