Rice‚Äôs combination of top tier engineering and sciences, strong business school and creatively-oriented student body create a natural environment for innovation and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship@Rice is composed of a collection of curricular and co-curricular activities meant to prepare students for the process of entrepreneurship. Our classes combine theory and practice in order to provide students the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned in the classroom. A combination of leading academics and practitioners ensures that students are exposed to a broad range of perspectives and experiences throughout their journey.¬†Read more about¬†Entrepreneurship@Rice.
