Personally Speaking...

Elizabeth Jones FTMBA

Prior to Rice, I started a career coaching business on top of my full-time job as a corporate tech recruiter. At Rice, I have been able to meet several folks who managed businesses outside of their "day jobs." I knew Rice is ranked #1 for its entrepreneurial program, but it was still so refreshing to meet people who share my same spirit of creating and innovating in business.

The classes I have taken have taught me many new things that I have not been previously aware of. I have also made many new friends that I will cherish forever and continue to be friends with post-MBA.

One of the things the MBA program has given me is confidence — the feeling that there’s nothing I can’t explore.

A Bold New Creation at Rice Business

Get an inside look as artist Kate Shepherd creates Rice Business’ stunning new wall painting in luminous shades of red and grey, a hypnotic visual connection to the architecture of McNair Hall’s octagonal atrium. The result, titled “Tricycle Red, Pelican Grey, etc., partial octagons,” is a work of art equal in boldness to the students of Rice Business.
