Alumni

Welcome Alumni

The Career Development Office is committed to alumni of Rice Business. Our approach to supporting alumni is individualized, just like when you were a student. We recognize the diverse backgrounds and unique career paths that each Rice MBA alum has experienced since graduating. And we work from there, providing one-on-one advising by experienced staff members, programming that appeals to more experienced professionals, and other resources that alumni can access through this site and our advisors. We hope and trust that you’ll take advantage of the career transition assistance we provide.

If you’re looking to hire, you may easily support our efforts to help 100% of our MBAs find internships and the right full-time position by posting a job, sharing on social and hosting an info session about your company. About 90% found full-time positions within three months of graduation last year. We intend to continue this level of support. But, we can’t do it alone. Help open the door for our students to opportunities within your organization.
