World-Class Faculty

Recognized for their academic achievements and exceptional classroom teaching, our faculty have distinguished themselves nationally and internationally. To find clear, quick translations of their bold ideas, try reading Rice Business Wisdom. It will change the way you think.

There is a collaborative feel to the program. We study together, learn from one another (piece of advice: become friends with someone with a background in accounting), and most of the assignments are tackled in groups of three to five.

Personally Speaking

Robert J. Gaudette

My experience at Rice has had a lasting impact by teaching me how to learn continuously in business and in finance.  I am also proud to call a professor, or two, personal friends – 20 years after studying for their exams.
