The Rice Business Nickname
Market research shows that by more closely associating the business school with the Rice University name we raise awareness significantly. When more people know Rice’s business school, we are better positioned to improve our reputation and gain a more diverse set of applicants to the school.
We remain the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business: a proud reminder of the visionary and civic activist and his role building our school and modern Houston.
