Interested in Rice Business?


As a Consortium Fellow, I had the opportunity to attend a diversity recruiting conference with some of my classmates, which was a great opportunity to meet, learn, and even interview with some top-tier companies. Our Career Development Office was so supportive before, during, and after the conference, which just confirms why I chose Rice.
