"The Rice community has always been super supportive of me and has always had my back. This kind of esprit de corps is what makes Rice Business such a special place and makes it one of the best business schools in the world."
- Sean Ferguson, Full-Time MBA ‘01
The “partio,” or party on the patio, is a venerated Rice Business tradition. Whether it’s an international partio to celebrate the different cultures in our community or a family partio where you can introduce your littles and loved ones to your Rice Business family, partios are our favorite way to unwind and get to know each other better. Join us.
Craving a cortado? Audrey’s Coffee is our community café — a place where students can gather to caffeinate, study and get to know each other.

"International Partio was fantastic. The number of cultures represented was awesome, and I think the time and energy our classmates put into sharing a piece of their background was very, very touching."
- Andrew Littel, Full-Time MBA ‘20
Let the Games Begin
Every year, MBA students put on the “Owlympics,” where fellow classmates and alumni come together for a fun-filled day of games and trivia.
Everyone involved in the program – the professors, the [Office of Academic Programs and Student Experience], and especially the team that plans the food for our catered events – has been a pleasure to interact with and has shown great caring in adapting to make the program an enjoyable and safe experience. You can tell that they are all committed to making the MBA program at Rice the best that it can be.
