From the Chairman On behalf of the Council of Overseers, I want to recognize the progress and impact your contributions have made this past year. The centennial campaign has kicked into high gear as has the planning of programs at the Jones School and across campus as part of the year-long centennial celebration. This August we celebrate 10 years in McNair Hall, an amazing facility from which all our work, study and research takes place. We have much to applaud. I also want to extend the council’s thanks to the faculty for their innovation and inspiration in the classroom and in their fields of research, the professional staff for their efforts and expertise, and the Houston business community for their participation in programs such as the Rice Energy Finance Summit and the Rice Business Plan Competition. The Jones School plays a critical role in building a strong business community and your dedication enriches the experience for our students and alumni. Many of the year’s successes were established by the participation of strong, committed alumni who serve the Jones School in many ways. It’s this participation in tandem with the world class research of faculty which continues to grow the reputation and global regard of not just the Jones School but Rice University as a whole. This year found Rice MBA students representing the school in Rwanda, Brazil, Mexico, China and India. The school is now admitting our third consecutive year of PhD students, all of whom will one day teach future leaders at other highly ranked schools and in doing so bring additional respect to our graduate program and research. The Jones School is making a difference in our own community as well. Programs like Jones Partners Thought Leadership Series and REEP are providing the educational guidance to insure even better future educational leaders in our schools. Our students continue to make a difference in Community Capstone, Action Learning Project and the Board Fellows – all of which I invite you to learn more about.


Entrepreneurship continues to drive not just our own students and alumni but attracts students from around the country for the largest and richest business plan competition on Earth. Organizations such as the Rice Alliance and the Jones Graduate School Entrepreneurs Organization seek not only to identify potential but to drive the spirit of entrepreneurship we find in our alumni, students and community. The Jones School continues to provide value through many different facets and only gains momentum through the active participation and support of our stakeholders. I look forward to seeing the continued influence of our graduates around the world and encourage you, in the coming year, to do something to support the Jones School. Sincerely,


Council of Overseers Chairman Rice University Board of Trustees Member Rice BA ’68, Rice ME ’69 Former President and CEO, Oceaneering International, Inc.

From the Dean I am proud to celebrate the past year and share all that we have accomplished with you in the pages of this annual report. Looking back over the year, we see the emergence of substantial improvement in nearly every aspect of the Jones School — from student admission and career placement to faculty impact and alumni support. As we continued our commitment to maintain or increase admission standards in each program, total full time equivalent enrollment increased to 754, the highest enrollment ever. Growth occurred across the board in applications, selectivity, GMAT scores, as well as domestic population from outside Texas and international students in the full time class. In the Rice MBA program for professionals, we saw big gains in the average incoming salary and percentage of admission offers accepted. Applications for executive students increased, as did the number of students with advanced degrees. Entering its third year, the PhD in Business now has 20 students across four disciplines with selectivity at 4.7 percent this past year. The persistent demand for our students is reflected in a balanced industry employment mix. Metrics from the Career Management Center have full-time students employed in energy at 31 percent, financial services at 24 percent, consulting at 18 percent and consumer products at 14 percent.

Faculty contributions in research, teaching and service are critical to fulfilling the Jones School’s mission. Our faculty members continue to challenge and inspire students in the classroom, conduct innovative research and inform the global dialogue between business and society. The strength of the Jones School faculty helped to propel the Rice MBA full-time program into the Businessweek top 30 for the first time. It also gave our faculty an “A” for teaching quality, a top 10 ranking for research productivity, and subsequently included Prashant Kale as one of the 10 most popular MBA professors globally. Alumni philanthropic support is a critical component of the school’s progress. This demonstrates pride in the Jones School, an investment in the future of our students and faculty, and a commitment to increase the value of the Rice MBA. It reflects alumni satisfaction with the quality of the degree and speaks to the collective power of the Rice alumni network. This year we passed the $37,000,000 mark toward our $65,000,000 objective in Rice University’s Centennial Campaign. We are looking to end strong. Thanks to all those who have contributed. Transforming business thought? We do it every day with your continued support. Sincerely,


Dean and H. Joe Nelson III Professor of Management Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business, Rice University


Centennial Campaign Less than a year remains before Rice’s 100th anniversary, and the Centennial Campaign — started in September 2005 — is gaining momentum toward its $1 billion goal. As of November 1, 2011, volunteers and donors have raised a total of $747 million, of which $106 million came in during the academic year ending in June 2011. Already that surge of new funding is proving transformative across a range of endeavors at Rice, and it is providing an inspiring preview of the great potential to be realized as we reach our final goal. In the last capital campaign, the Jones School built a worldclass facility. With the Centennial Campaign, we are investing in human capital! The Jones School Centennial Campaign goal is $65 million, which will allow us to attract and develop future leaders through scholarships and to recruit and retain the best faculty in the world. These elements will help make us an engine of innovation with a global impact. Campaign Goal: $65,000,000 Cumulative Commitments: $37,584,443 (6/30/2011)

Admissions The Jones School remains committed to admitting the best and brightest in all our MBA and PhD programs. The quality of our Class of 2013 shines through in their metrics as well as their individuality.


FULL TIME MBA The 113 members of the Class of 2013 hail from 20 U.S. states and 18 countries and attended nearly 80 different undergraduate institutions. The students were chosen from 700 applicants, the most competitive applicant pool ever. Eight have served in four different branches of the U.S. Military including one who received a purple heart and another, a Navy Seal, who missed the birth of his first child while serving our country. Several have their pilot’s license. One worked as a dive instructor, another as a private investigator, another as a certified bee keeper.






There are 94 students in the Class of 2013 evening sections and 63 in the weekend — this is, by far, the largest group of students ever to enroll in the professionals program. Nearly 20 percent of the professionals students already have a master’s degree and three have PhDs. Eight have served in five different branches of the U.S. Military including tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Students represent 116 different companies with responsibilities across an array of industries and functions. The average incoming salary is $88K — a 14 percent increase over the previous high.

There are a total of 88 students enrolled in the Class of 2013 executives program. Nearly half the class has advanced degrees — 45 percent. Students represent 60 different companies with responsibilities across an array of industries and functions. Average work experience is 13.5 years. One student was a former Gerber baby, another was a member of the MOB (Marching Owl Band) and, combined, the executive students are parents of 94 children!

PHD PROGRAM A total of 404 applicants applied to the PhD in Business for fall 2011 admission. Ten applicants enrolled in the following areas: marketing (2), finance (1), accounting (3) and strategic management (4). Rising third-year students (in marketing) started working fulltime on their independent research projects that will culminate in doctoral dissertations. There are a total of 20 in the doctorate program as of fall 2011.

UNDERGRADUATE BUSINESS MINOR The undergraduate business minor continues to significantly broaden the university’s curriculum offerings and, since 2007, has brought 970 Rice undergraduates to McNair Hall.

Students come from all schools on the Rice campus. Of the 742 students in the class of 2011, 29 percent attended at least one class at the Jones School.

Connecting Through Knowledge

Our faculty has been visible in the media both for their expert opinions and in articles profiling their research. Utpal Dholakia’s research on the social couponing website Groupon was featured in numerous articles including those in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Businessweek and Forbes and on many radio and television stations across the country. Vikas Mittal’s research on brand recognition and customer loyalty was mentioned in Time magazine and articles about Starbucks’ logo redesign and the company’s Asian expansion. Gustavo Grullon was featured in a fortune. story about the likelihood of a double


dip recession. Ajay Kalra’s research on why customers purchase extended warranties was described in a New York Times article about Best Buy’s Super Bowl commercial featuring Ozzy Osbourne and its new consumer electronics buyback program. Vikas Mittal and Scott Sonenshein were featured in numerous media outlets to provide insights regarding the United/Continental merger. Bill Arnold and Vince Kaminski were frequently quoted on issues related to energy and regulation. Businessweek recognized Prashant Kale as one of the top ten most popular business professors and referred to him as a “scholarly rock star” due to his high impact research and teaching prowess. Within the school, our faculty received awards and promotions. Five faculty received JGSB teaching awards selected by students and alumni: Brian Rountree (Full-time MBA), Richard Price (MBA for Professionals evening), Prashant Kale (MBA for Professionals weekend), Margaret Cording (MBA for Executives) and Al Napier (Alumni). Three faculty received research awards selected by their peers: Alex Butler and Utpal Dholakia (co-recipients of the award for tenured faculty) and Scott Sonenshein (untenured faculty). Four faculty were promoted to Full Professor with tenure: Utpal Dholakia, Gustavo Grullon, Amit Pazgal and Anthea Zhang; and two were honored with endowed chairs: James Weston is the William S. Mackey and Verne F. Simons Distinguished Associate Professor of Finance and Alex Butler is the Jones School Distinguished Associate Professor of Finance.

The research productivity of our faculty continues to be outstanding. Collectively, the faculty published a total of 108 articles in the 45 top academic and practitioner journals tracked by the Financial Times (compared to 60 articles five years ago). As a result, the Jones School’s research ranking in the Financial Times increased to No. 14 internationally (compared to No. 52 five years ago). The faculty’s research productivity also contributed to the Jones School’s first ever Businessweek top 30 ranking, where they also ranked No. 10 nationally in intellectual capital. Jones School faculty were selected to present their research at many of the top international conferences and invited to give research seminars at many of the top universities internationally. Several faculty members also received distinguished recognition within their professions. Jennifer George was elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Management and Jing Zhou was elected as a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology. Steve Zeff was the plenary speaker as the Presidential Scholar at the annual meeting of the American Accounting Association. Kerry Back served on a committee of distinguished scholars to select the next editor of the Journal of Finance. Erik Dane was honored with an outstanding reviewer award (his second) from the Academy of Management.

The Power of Endowment An endowed chair is among the most important contributions to higher education, a vital tool to ensure faculty excellence. It honors and recognizes the distinction of superior faculty while providing invaluable financial support above and beyond salary, for use in research, teaching or service activities. It is a powerful recruitment tool; the more chairs a school has endowed, the more prestigious and attractive to potential faculty. Lynette S. Autrey Chair in Management – Duane Windsor Herbert S.
