Rice Business Office of Student Services

Live, study and play on a spectacular tree-lined campus nestled in the heart of Houston. On campus, you can join any one of our numerous student clubs and enjoy specific events that celebrate diversity and inclusion. We offer more than 30 student clubs for our students across our three MBA Programs, including our very active affinity clubs. Our chapter of NAWMBA provides a support system for our women MBAs and allies by hosting networking events, professional development workshops. The annual Women in Leadership Conference (WILC) provides a forum for our students and the broader business community to discuss issues that resonate and impact women in business.

Our Asian Business Student Association, Black Business Student Association, Hispanic Business Student Association and Out & Allied [watch a video on Facebook from Reaching Out MBA] clubs are all very active and provide a support system as well as opportunities to their members to network with students, alumni, and members of the Houston corporate community. In addition, our clubs worked together to host the first annual Diversity and Inclusion Conference, bringing together nearly 200 members of the Houston and Rice communities to discuss the business case for diversity and inclusion.

The Veterans in Business Association supports our veterans to help them strive in the business world by hosting their annual Veterans in Leadership Series. They also plan additional events throughout the year.
