What about the Rice MBA program has surprised you the most?
The people. Every single individual that one comes into contact with through the Rice MBA, from faculty/staff to fellow classmates and alumni, have been nothing short of amazing. I constantly find myself wanting to get to know someone new in my class or a new professor as I am consistently impressed with their unique backgrounds or career paths that they are all willing to share.

What has been your favorite moment of your Rice MBA experience so far?
My favorite moment so far has been Launch. I have definitely made lifelong friendships that all started during that week!

What is your favorite thing about and/or favorite spot in Houston?
Food! El Tiempo!

In a sentence, what is the one piece of advice you have for prospective students?
You can never judge a book by its cover.
