Life at Rice

We offer the best of both worlds at Rice Business: a small student body on an oasis-like campus surrounded by bustling Houston, the fourth-largest and most diverse city in America. You’ll benefit from close connections as well as the broad opportunities available in a city with the world’s largest medical complex, more than 5,000 energy firms, and the second-largest concentration of Fortune 1000 companies in the country.

Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Our entire school is housed in one building with plenty of communal gathering spaces that encourage students, faculty and staff to get to know each other. Your classes, your social life and support services are all integrated. Everything you need is close by, and everyone knows your name.

Rice truly showed me the power of community. As a prospective student, I felt embraced by existing students and administration — Rice wanted me to win and I had not received an acceptance letter yet!

Why Houston?

The fourth-largest and most diverse city in America, Houston is a growing tech hub, an established energy town, and a healthcare industry hot spot for the win. Get to know and love the city and its culture (hello, culinary capital of the South) for your two years during grad school (and maybe more).
