Rising in the Rankings

The Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University is the youngest and fastest rising business school in the country. We’re grateful for the national recognition, but mostly because we care about those who care about the rankings: students, alumni and the companies who hire our graduates.

No matter where we stand in the rankings, we’re still going to keep striving to make this the best school for our students, through initiatives like our global experience program and our Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Fostering an Intimate Campus Environment

One of the great benefits of Rice Business is our size. All our top-notch faculty and students are on the same campus and in the same building. Our average class size is small — about 40 — and the faculty members know your name. Our alumni make connections with current students as well as fellow alumni. And your classmates stay friends for life. Live, study and play on a spectacular tree-lined campus nestled in the heart of Houston. Come be a part of our small but mighty campus.

Changing Students' Futures

Rice Business is designed to change you and your career. We have built each program to give you the education and skills you need to advance professionally. Stay where you are and move up the ladder. Or take a leap of faith and try something new. Either way, our Career Development Office is available to students and graduates and provides extended evening hours during the week. We will help you intern at organizations like Amazon, ExxonMobil, Goldman Sachs and Texas Children’s Hospital; network with Fortune 500 companies; and gain expert guidance from staff who are as invested in your education as you are.

Don't take our word alone. Learn how Rice has impacted current students and alumni.
