Do you have a liberal arts undergraduate degree?

Come join us for an on-campus information session with our Rice MBA alumni panel who will share stories of starting their careers with a liberal arts background and how they progressed through a professional path that incorporated the Rice MBA. 

It is not necessary to have a business or even a technical degree to pursue the Rice MBA! Come see the diversity of undergraduate majors (Literature, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, English, Spanish, International Study, History, Linguistics, Public Relations, Anthropology, Architecture just to name a few) among our students and alumni.

These on-campus sessions offer you the opportunity to visit with faculty, staff, current students and alumni in a large social setting.
