Tight-Knit Culture

We’re a small and selective business school with a unique learning culture. Because we’re small, you’ll be on a first-name basis with your classmates as well as your professors. And — bonus — you’re all on the same campus in the same building. Classes have a vitality that’s fueled by a diversity of views and backgrounds. In fact, Princeton Review ranked our classroom and campus experience No. 10 in the U.S. 

Learn and Lead

Our intimate campus and small student body lend themselves to close connections and strong collaboration with classmates. The learning is team-based; you’ll work together and challenge each other. The very nature of our size encourages you to step up and take a leadership role. It's all hands on deck. Your voice is heard. You matter.

Big City, Big Dreams

Our tree-our tree-lined campus is in the heart of Houston. You'll have easy access to restaurants, theaters, museums, professional sports, lush parks, the world’s largest medical center and boundless innovation. You belong here.

Follies is a great example of the community at Rice Business. Every year the class can come together and poke fun at each other, which can only happen when everyone knows, respects and loves everybody in the class. Follies is one big party that is a blast for everyone in the program.
