Personally Speaking...

Profile picture of Stacy Fish, a full time mba student

You’re really encouraged to take leadership positions and you get a lot of support. I decided to run for president of the women’s organization, something I never thought I’d do. But here it's kind of all hands on deck. All of our voices are heard. They matter.

Even as most of the rest of the U.S. top 25 full-time B-schools were shedding MBA app volume in the 2018-2019 cycle (and at every school, going back three years), the Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University in Houston was bucking the national trend, reporting not only increased applications but a falling acceptance rate, too.
