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 the successful leader, delivering knowledge for excellence in finance, marketing, operations, entrepreneurship and global business. While our military veterans go into a broad range of industries and functions, no matter where your interests take you the Career Development Office (CDO) is with you on the journey throughout your two years and beyond. As with all students, the CDO provides group workshops along with individualized student engagement to ensure you develop the strategy, job search skills, and networking opportunities that will help you succeed in the professional 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.
