Dean, Peter Rodriguez


In academia, July is like January. While business school operations are never on pause, there is a moment over the summer where we take a breath before the teaching, recruiting and events begin again. I hope you’ve had a chance to catch yours. If not, take a moment to watch this Investiture video. We're so proud of our graduates.
Another crop of students starts their MBA, MAcc and Ph.D. journeys this month. And we officially welcome seven new faculty and a few more staff members. Some are new to Rice, others to Houston. It’s the perfect time to show off our Texas hospitality. If you're in the building over the next few months, please introduce yourself, get to know someone new, offer your help. Let them know they’ve made the right choice to come to Rice Business.
