What about the Rice MBA program has surprised you the most?
Collaboration between school administration and students. Students have a voice and we are heard.
What has been your favorite moment of your Rice MBA experience so far?
I know this sounds cliche, but before business school I was told I would make lifelong friends. Turns out... it's true. Business school, especially first semester, you go through a real bonding experience with your classmates; no one else understands what it is like. I know I now have lifelong friends because of it!
What is your favorite thing about and/or favorite spot in Houston?
Diversity of food! I moved here from New York City, a pretty great place to eat. But Houston is filled with so many diverse people who are sharing their food with the city. I am really looking forward to trying Viet Cajun food next!
In a sentence, what is the one piece of advice you have for prospective students?
Don't sweat the small stuff- its a transformative and transitional time, enjoy it!
