Life at Rice Business

Student life at Rice Business is unique. The intimate campus and small student body lend themselves to close connections and strong collaboration with other students. The entire school is housed in one building, so everything students need is close by.

And Rice Business is committed to cultivating and nurturing a school full of diversity. Diversity of opinion. Diversity of ideas. Diversity of career aspirations. And diversity of our student body.


In addition, our oasis-like campus is nestled in the heart of the country's most ethnically diverse urban area: Houston, Texas. We capitalize on our location in Houston, which is home to the second largest concentration of Fortune 1000 companies in the country and the world’s largest medical complex, and more than 5,000 energy-related firms. Houston ranks second in employment growth rate and fourth in nominal employment growth among the 10 most populous metro areas in the The Houston metropolitan area recently ranked first in Texas and third in the U.S. within the category of "Best Places for Business and Careers" by Forbes magazine.

Another key to our environment is an active, fully staffed Student Programs Office, which invests in our students and provides support for them beyond their academic lives. The office, just down the hall from our classrooms, is easily accessible and helps students pursue a well-rounded educational experience that includes international exposure and leadership opportunities.

The result of all these advantages is remarkably high student satisfaction levels. Because Rice Business students are more than classmates — they're friends for life.
