Rice MBA Full Time Class of 2013

Before the Rice MBA:
Before Rice, I worked as an analyst at an investment bank in the natural resources group in Houston. I also worked for a small start-up company in the Houston area doing various roles.

Choosing the Jones Graduate School of Business:
I only applied to MBA schools in Texas. I chose Rice because of the location and the people who I met throughout the admissions process. I am also interested in entrepreneurship and Rice has one of the top programs for aspiring entrepreneurs.

On your team experience:
My team is great! We have all become friends and genuinely enjoy working together on assignments. We are completely different but somehow we get along really well. We even eat lunch together every day and plan social events on the weekends.
