What about the Rice MBA program has surprised you the most?
I was surprised to learn that most professors are approachable and would be happy to set up appointments outside of office hours if you're curious about their research or just want to chat.

Since Rice Business has small class sizes, professors will eventually know you on a first name basis.

What has been your favorite moment of your Rice MBA experience so far?
Weekly partios. I always try to go to partio to socialize with my friends and classmates after a long week of classes.

What is your favorite thing about and/or favorite spot in Houston?
Hermann Park and the surrounding area near the museum district.

In a sentence, what is the one piece of advice you have for prospective students?
Choose the university that will help you achieve your desired goals post-graduation instead of choosing the highest ranked university that admits you.
