May 2018FORMER STUDENT

No compromise on academics - very close to full time program in terms of academics / professors / syllabus

Allow me to keep working while studying

Downers

Expensive Tuition

Difficulty to find visa sponsorship for international students

Comments

Very demanding if you work full-time and have young kids... be prepared for diminishing performance at either school, work or family.

“Nurturing environment; incredible opportunity”
October 2017FORMER STUDENT
Uppers

The Rice MBA is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I loved the small, nurturing environment and the high-performing academic mindset of my peers.

Downers

Not enough interaction between Full Time, Professional, and Executive students. We were all in the same building together and did not take advantage of it.

Comments

Test scores matter but so does your cultural fit for the program. Challenging but rewarding. Supportive Career Development Office places students in jobs regularly.

Would You Recommend

Yes
