Getting Ahead

“Over just one year in the MBA program, I transitioned to a new role, developed a model that is being implemented for business analytics questions within ExxonMobil, trained business analysts for the other regions of the U.S., and just recently got a promotion. I have no doubt that the coursework and experiences at Rice contributed to both my accomplishments and promotion.”

"My biggest accomplishment so far with Women Offshore is operating a mentoring program that has grown from just a few mentors and mentees to 150 participants. This year, we expanded the capacity to 500 spots. I started the mentoring program in 2018 as a means to connect women who work on the water, especially in fleets where they don’t have access to female mentors."
