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.

Imran Majeed

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.
