Only in Houston

Welcome to America’s most diverse city. Home to newcomers from around the globe, there’s no better place to live and launch. Think foodie heaven, off-the-grid culture, wildcatter innovation, sports, arts, culture and 38,394 acres of parks.

Personally Speaking...

Elizabeth Jones FTMBA

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.

Executive MBA ‘21


Owl Have You Know is Rice Business’ podcast created to share the experiences of alumni, faculty, students and other members of our business community – real stories of belonging, failing, rebounding and, ultimately, succeeding.


Dan Purvis

Host Scott Gale '19 interviews Velentium CEO and founder Dan Purvis '05. Dan shares the risks he took early in his career that made him successful, the importance of "work-life fit," and the incredible story of how Velentium became a major player in ventilator production in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Amanda Stewart

Amanda is the vice president of retail operations for Constellation, the nation’s largest producer of carbon-free energy. She and host Scott Gale '19 chat about what has kept her working with passion at Constellation for 15 years and how her Japanese-American background and the internment camps of WWII are a central part of her family’s history and her commitment to DEI work.

Joanna Nathan

In this episode, Joanna, CEO of Prana Thoracic, shares her career journey, passion for healthcare, deep connection to Rice, and how the heartbreaking loss of her young son serves as her inspiration for finding groundbreaking medical technologies to help others.

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.
