The Tech Trek to Austin is my favorite moment of my Rice experience so far — seeing offices where we could work was great, and meeting alumni was really helpful for me as someone trying to break into the industry.

Professional MBA ‘20
My favorite moment so far was getting the phone call that I had received an internship. So much networking and preparation went into landing the job that I felt very proud of myself. The best part was that it was not just me who got to celebrate. My classmates and the CDO — both of whom were there every step of the way — got to celebrate too.
