"Rice University's MBA program is an absolutely fantastic program that gives you the opportunity to excel in almost any industry you want to be a part of. The Jones Graduate School of Business is well known for their Energy, Entrepreneurship, and Health Care programs. Finance and consulting are also very popular at the Jones school. With Rice University being extremely generous with their scholarship offers, this school is by far one of best values of any program in the country."

"I am doing the professional program where I work full time. The professional program is considered a full-time program as we have the same cirriculum and credit hours as the full-time MBA students."

"My Rice classmates are smart, hard working, and committed and a team environment was quickly created in our classrooms. The professors will challenge you academically while providing as much support and feedback as you desire. The Rice network is supportive and alumni have always replied back to me with advice when I have reached out. Opportunities for clubs, social events, and networking abound."

"One of the greatest aspects of life at the Jones School is the atmosphere that is evoked from students and faculty. There is a true collegiate and supportive environment that is unlike any academic setting I have ever experienced. This is only fostered by unique campus bars and events that allow students, faculty, professors and alumni to network and bond. The only piece of the school I have been somewhat disappointed in is the career center. While the center is extremely accessible and friendly, I feel that there is only a superficial understanding of the recruitment and career building process, which forces students interested in anything other than cookie-cutter, mainstream MBA roles to fend for themselves."
