Helping You Put Your Wisdom to Work

During your time as a Rice Business student, you will have access to a dedicated team of coaches and mentors who will help you connect your experience and personal strengths to your ambitious career goals.

We Start with a Personalized Career Plan

Our number one mission at MBA@Rice is to help you achieve great success. We start by defining your professional strengths and interests, areas of expertise, and personal motivations, and use those insights to design a personalized development plan.

Through planning resources like digital education programming and one-on-one coaching, we ensure you have all the tools and skills you need to enhance your marketability, employability, and promotability — and reach the bold career milestones you’ve set for yourself.

“We want to challenge you in a way that literally changes the way you think. After two years of being in this MBA program, you’re going to see the world differently, you’re going to have greater capability, you’re going to ask different questions — and in that sense, you’ll be transformed from the moment you came in.”

–Peter Rodriguez, Dean
