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
New research co-authored by Rice Business professor Vikas Mittal shows that mission statements do not enhance financial performance, even though companies prominently feature them as an outcome of their strategy-planning process.
Jing Zhou, the Mary Gibbs Jones Professor of Management and Psychology at Rice’s Jones Graduate School of Business, has been elected as a fellow of the Academy of Management (AOM).
Seven members of the Jones Graduate School of Business faculty were recognized for excellence in teaching at Rice University’s May 14 investiture ceremony at Rice Stadium. Honorees were chosen by the Rice MBA alumni group as well as by students in the Jones School’s MBA programs.
