Our students have been quite busy already not just adjusting to the new campus, new courses, making new friends and keeping up with homework, but also working on updating their resumes, writing cover letters, attending the fall career fair and participating in Career Center info sessions and campus recruiting events. The fall seminar series has already provided great preparation and training in communication skills, and will bring corporate speakers to campus in the following weeks.

With a focus on Rice undergrad students we are spreading the word about opportunities for Rice students to line their study plans up to create a pathway into our professional master's degree which - with good planning - they could finish
in a 5th
year of studies at Rice, completing their B.S. and their M.S. degrees back-to-back.
We also have seen a higher interest in our dual
PSM/MBA tracks by incoming students who have to apply to both programs at the same time to be able to qualify for this opportunity.
