Every year, the Rice MBA is proud to enroll veterans and active duty personnel in all three of its programs: MBA Full Time, MBA for Professionals and MBA for Executives. We honor your service and value the unique contributions you will bring to the business school as a student and a leader.

Our distinctive MBA programs focus on the qualities that mark a successful leader, delivering knowledge in finance, marketing, operations, entrepreneurship and global business. While our military veterans go into a broad range of industries and functions, no matter where their interests take them, the Career Development Office (CDO) supports them in the transition to a civilian career. The CDO provides group workshops along with one-on-one career advising to ensure our veterans develop the strategy, job search skills, and networking opportunities to succeed in the MBA job market.

We are thrilled to support military veterans who are making a transition to civilian life after serving our country. Through the military, these vets have developed tremendous leadership skills, and through the Rice MBA, we can help them translate those leadership skills to civilian roles. Rice University and the Houston community are pleased to welcome and support our veterans.

With competition for top MBA students fierce and support of those students an essential philanthropic priority, the business school at Rice is focusing a portion of its recruiting efforts on U.S. veterans. This military student support encompasses scholarships, extensive funding of the Post 911 Yellow Ribbon Program, the Veterans in Business Association (VIBA), and a network of alumni and community members.
