Why Teach At Rice
"Beyond providing an academically stimulating environment, Rice Business has created a supportive atmosphere where I am free to pursue my research projects, share my ideas with colleagues and students, and engage with the business community."
"Borrowing money can improve a person’s life in many ways, whether it’s being used to fund an education, start a business or buy a house. But there are also concerns about predatory lending and the implications for financial stability. This has led to regulations that restrict how much money people can borrow. I hope my research will be useful for evaluating and improving these policies."
Faculty in the Media
According to a study co-authored by Rice Business professor Vikas Mittal, public schools can revitalize themselves by embracing a customer focus. “Ideally, every school’s customer should be the family—the student and their parents. Instead, leadership has become internally focused trying to appease different power brokers and stakeholders."
