What about the Rice MBA program has surprised you the most?
The diverse backgrounds of all the students, both professionally and personally, and the community at Rice Business across all the programs.

What has been your favorite moment of your Rice MBA experience so far?
I really enjoyed Launch. It was a great opportunity for everyone to get to meet one another, and everyone was interested in meeting new people.

What is your favorite thing about and/or favorite spot in Houston?
I really like the West University area around campus. After a long day at the office, driving to class, there are gorgeous trees that line the street. The pretty drive to campus helps me reset for class and decompress a little bit after a busy day at the office.

In a sentence, what is the one piece of advice you have for prospective students?
Know who you are, and know what you want to accomplish after you finish the program.
