Why attend Rice University, Jones Graduate School of Business

Founded in 2011, the Veteran in Business Association (VIBA) has helped transform the Rice MBA program into one of the most veteran-friendly schools in the country. VIBA provides transitional support and leadership guidance to veterans while seeking to build a strong academic, professional and personal support network among Rice alumni and the veteran community. Rice proudly launched the Military Scholarship Program (MSP) in 2012, which consists of a full tuition scholarship plus a generous living stipend. The MSP was created in order to honor those military candidates with exceptional military service and merit. Rice also participates in the Yellow-Ribbon Program which helps support veterans who are 100% Post-911 eligible. For those eligible for Yellow Ribbon, the combined funding covers the full cost of the program. In addition, all admitted students are evaluated for significant merit-based scholarships.
