What about the Rice MBA program has surprised you the most?

All of my professors have PhDs. I honestly was not expecting that. I greatly appreciate that aspect because of the level of knowledge and research our professors bring into their lectures.

What has been your favorite moment of your Rice MBA experience so far?
GFE. Even though it was unexpected, I enjoyed getting to hang with my classmates abroad.

What is your favorite thing about and/or favorite spot in Houston?
The food

In a sentence, what is the one piece of advice you have for prospective students?

Put your social life on hold to succeed in this program. Your true friends will understand and those 24 months will go by quickly.
