What about the Rice MBA program has surprised you the most?
The professors are responsive.
The Rice Business community is authentic, passionate, and supportive.
What has been your favorite moment of your Rice MBA experience so far?
My favorite moment was when we were sitting in class and the teacher asked a question about an event that took place over 100 years ago. Almost immediately, one of my classmates yelled out the answer. Everyone was in awe, for it appeared no one knew what the professor was referring to. It was at that moment I knew I was surrounded by the level of intelligence that would push me beyond my limits.
What is your favorite thing about and/or favorite spot in Houston?
My favorite thing about Houston is the diversity of food, people, and culture.
