principled innovative t hough t l e a ders in g l oba l c om muni t ie s. ANNUAL REPORT 2008-2009

Message from the Dean In 2012, Rice University will celebrate its centennial, and the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business will near its 40-year anniversary. Our mission – developing principled, innovative thought leaders in global communities – has never been more relevant as we educate the entrepreneurs, senior managers, strategists and academics who will tackle the challenges of the century ahead. Over the last several years, we have: dramatically improved admissions standards; aggressively recruited excellent faculty, staff, and students; enhanced the curriculum, teaching effectiveness, and the student experience; increased faculty research productivity and visibility; and developed a stronger presence in the local and global communities. Currently, we face some of the toughest economic conditions in the history of the school. This has created uncertainty for the school, limited employment opportunities for graduates, dampened student demand for executive and professional MBA programs in the U.S., reduced projected revenues from the endowment, and confronted us with a greater need than ever for creative solutions. We have risen to the challenge and appear to be well positioned to emerge from the crisis in better shape than our competition.

Bill Glick Dean H. Joe Nelson III Professor of Management

Looking back at the most recent year, we have had several major accomplishments including a dramatic increase in research activity, several international awards for our programs, an exceptional year in terms of faculty recruiting, graduation of the first undergraduate Business Minor students, and admission of the first class for the PhD program. Additionally, we continue to have broad engagement of our alumni, continued success in alumni participation in annual giving, strong employment for our graduates in the context of a major economic recession, and enrollment of a near record number of Rice MBA students across three programs (Fulltime, Professionals, and Executives) with record setting admissions standards. All of this points to the continued strength of the Jones School. This report is intended to give you an overview of the strides the Jones School has made in the past year. I must say that it is because of our generous supporters, alumni and friends, that we are able to continue to grow and strengthen our reputation. Thank you. Sincerely,

Bill Glick Dean H. Joe Nelson III Professor of Management 2

This year we completed a branding study, renamed the school and launched a new logo and Web site. The new name, Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business, encompasses the breadth of programs at the school. The new logo identity has enhanced our association with Rice University overall by incorporating the Rice shield.

The Centennial Campaign During the last capital campaign, Jones School supporters invested in our state-of-the-art building, McNair Hall. For the Centennial Campaign, we are asking for investment in people. The Centennial Campaign enables the Jones School to invest in people who secure our position as a hub for innovative business education and thought leadership. Attracting and retaining the best faculty and students is critical to our vision for the second century. We must also leverage the unique assets of Rice University and Houston, one of the most important business centers in the world, to distinguish Jones from other business schools. We plan to do this by investing in people in our areas of excellence: Energy, Entrepreneurship and Health Care - $35 million in recruiting and retaining the best faculty and $30 million in recruiting and developing future leaders, a total campaign goal of $65 million.

Best faculty

People Duane Windsor, Lynette S. Autrey Professor of Management Strategy – Environment looks on with Executive MBA students during a special presentation.

Recruiting and retaining rising stars and exceptional senior faculty is crucial to our educational and research mission and is a common denominator underpinning each of our initiatives. We face fierce competition from business schools both locally and around the world. To continue to grow and differentiate the Jones School in this market, we need the strongest possible faculty. Talented, visible faculty provide thought leadership in academic disciplines necessary to develop ethical business leaders of tomorrow, as well as enhance the “Houston is the great city it is today in large reputation and mission of the school.

part because of the vision, courage and entrepreneurial spirit of its leaders going back to its earliest days. To fully develop its potential today as one of the great global cities, Houston will need leadership more than ever. The Jones School is critical to providing that depth of talent. It attracts two-thirds of its students from outside the region, and two-thirds of its graduates stay in Houston. That makes Rice University a significant contributor to the city’s economic prosperity and prospects.” – President David Leebron

Future leaders Achieving our mission starts with the very finest students. Not surprisingly, competition among business schools for the best and brightest students is increasingly intense. Scholarships are crucial to our recruitment efforts. Meeting our immediate and long-term goals in this area requires investment in both endowment and current-use funds for scholarship for Rice MBA and PhD students. Our goal for this campaign is ambitious, but together we will make the Jones School an engine of innovation with global impact by investing in these areas of excellence and by strengthening our alliances throughout Rice, Houston and the world.

Speakers Series The Jones Graduate School of Business maintains an important strategic and collaborative relationship with the Houston community highlighted in a variety of public programs and conferences. Over the past year, these have ranged from a faculty panel on the economic crisis to the presentation by Jim Turley, (Rice BA’77, MACC’78), for the Jones Graduate School Alumni Association annual dinner. 

“Leadership starts with a deep commitment to integrity, an important component to the Jones School’s approach to business education. Second is respect.” – Jim Turley, Rice Class of 1977, MBA Class of 1978, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ernst & Young

Some of the programs planned for the coming year will include: • the launch of the Undergraduate Business Minor Lecture Series with Keith Anderson, (Rice MBPM ’83), of Soros Fund Management LLC • the second annual faculty forum on the economy, a special program on the shareholder challenge to Bank of America that was orchestrated by Jerry and Jon Finger

Rice Education Entrepreneurship Program (REEP) Educators have recognized that the skills and knowledge necessary to close achievement gaps can be developed through rigorous, world-class business school education and knowledge of education reform. The Rice Education Entrepreneurship Program, provides current and aspiring school leaders with unparalleled opportunity to envision, build and effectively lead achievement-oriented education environments. The Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business is the first business school in Texas and the nation to have authority to certify aspiring principals. The State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) approved REEP’s application for Alternative Certification Program in April 2009.


Rice Summer Business Institute This summer, a group of 36 ambitious high-school students from low and moderate income communities attended this year’s Rice Summer Business Institute (RSBI) and were introduced to the fundamentals of business and the financial markets. Students came from Houston highschools with at-risk populations, such as Chinquapin, Davis, Reagan, Yates, KIPP, Wheatley and YES Prep. Through the RSBI experience, we hope to sow the seeds for developing business leaders for the future that come from diverse backgrounds.

“The best thing I can do as a leader is encourage people to think independently. You can’t always follow the crowd. You have to question whether common wisdom is true.” – Clint Carlson, Rice Class of 1979, Rice MBA Class of 1982, President and CIO of Carlson Capital, Member of the Jones School Council of Overseers


In spite of the worst economic climate since Jesse Jones loaned billions as the head of the Resolution Finance Corporation, total compensation (salary and bonuses) decreased by only 8.8 percent from last year. Most of the drop can be attributed to decreases in signing bonuses, as base salaries only decreased 3 percent. Class of 2009 employment at graduation was 52 percent and employment 3-months after graduation is projecting to be in the mid 70 percent to the low 80 percent range. While both of our percent employment metrics represent significant declines from the past two years, we expect to hold our position relative to peer schools. Full-Time MBA Salaries At Graduation

Ethics are more important than ever in our business leaders. Corporate social responsibility and sustainability are certain fixtures in the business world today. These topics are critical to our future leadership roles, regardless of industry. It’s about finding ways to do well in business while doing good. It’s about doing more with less. It’s about stewardship and it is essential to long-term success.

“Success is measured by the service you render and the character of citizen you make rather than the amount of money you amass.” – Jesse H. Jones, 1936


Jesse H. Jones

Rice has a high trust culture that obligates individuals to preserve our legacy of honor. Developing principled leaders starts on day one. Business honor (the MBA Oath) and academic integrity (Rice Honor Code) are presented as soon as a student begins the Rice MBA program. This underscores our commitment to integrity throughout the graduate’s career. The MBA Oath asserts that we “serve the greater good”, that we separate what is right from popular consensus at times and that we always act in good faith.

Social Entrepreneurship Jesse H. Jones left a legacy of leadership, honor and civic engagement. He knew the importance of doing good while doing well. The Jones School excels at entrepreneurship in all forms and is ranked among the nation’s best in Entrepreneur magazine, the Princeton Review and the U.S. Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurship represents an opportunity to advance the Jones School mission while addressing social and environmental needs worldwide. The most dramatic economic growth in the coming decades will be at the bottom of the economic pyramid, where 90 percent of the world population lives. This offers opportunities to Rice MBAs to be able to address the “triple bottom line”: societal progress, environmental stewardship and financial benefit.


Net Impact Net Impact is an international organization whose mission is to inspire, educate, and equip MBA students and professionals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world. The Rice chapter promotes the Jones School’s image as a program at pace with the changing business environment. In order to compete with other leading schools for the best and brightest applicants and graduate students as wellrounded and equipped to rejoin the workforce, efforts are focused on giving Jones School students opportunities to make a positive impact here on campus, give back to the Houston community, network with influential business leaders, and develop an understanding and appreciation for responsible business practices.

Innovative Programs Executive Education

This year has seen exciting and significant changes in the arena of Executive Education. These include the launch of the new open enrollment programs targeting critical leadership career transitions, the redesigned management certificate in health care, and the partnering with Cornell to offer strategic human resources classes for HR leadership teams. Responding to the economic downturn, activities in our custom programs have been revamped to include change management, strategic leadership and critical decision making.  Programs in energy continue to be strong. In addition to the acclaimed Ernst and Young Executive Education class tours Rice campus. energy certificate program, the 3rd annual “Energy Industry Director’s Conference” in March 2010 will feature keynote speaker Harry Markopolos on “Blowing the Whistle on Bernie Madoff” as well as Lynn Elsenhans, CEO of Sunoco, Doug Foshee, CEO of El Paso Corporation and Jim Hackett, CEO of Anadarko. Special thanks to Fulbright & Jaworski for sponsoring this upcoming conference.

Alumni Services In response to increased demand for career services by Jones alumni, the alumni office launched resume workshops and events, both online and onsite in Houston and New York.  Also new this year, a Business School track was offered during the 2009 Rice Alumni College weekend, and it boasted the largest attendance of all the lecture tracks. Other alumni programs continue to enhance the Jones School experience for both alumni and students. For instance, the Jones Alumni Volunteers for Admission (JAVA) program has more than doubled in size to 195 alumni ambassadors, with alumni representation at admissions information sessions up by 300 percent.

Rice Business Plan Competition The Rice Business Plan Competition, organized by the Rice Alliance, is one of the largest and richest intercollegiate graduate business plan competitions in the world. Eighty-four of 228 teams competing in previous Rice Business Plan Competitions have launched real companies. In April 2009, 42 top graduate schools from around the world competed in front of more than 200 judges over a period of three days. In 2009 for the first time, the Rice team made it all the way to the finals at the competition. The Jones School team finished in 6th place out of 42 teams. Subsequent to the Rice competition, the Rice MBA team (80 Legs) went on to become a finalist at the DFJ Cisco Business Plan Competition. 2009 Rice Business Plan Competition, Rice MBA team, 80 Legs

Online prep course for incoming students This summer, the Career Management Center launched a new online career management program for incoming students that uses the Career Leader assessment, career development exercises, individual introspection, team exercises, and online podcasts to help students begin developing a strategic plan for creatively blending a professional career and a meaningful personal life. Students come into the Rice MBA program with a full portfolio to begin the search for internships as soon as they set foot on campus.

In Mark Epstein’s technology commercialization course, Rice MBA students collaborated with Rice engineering undergraduates to create a sustainable commercial model for delivering life-saving technologies in developing countries, and then they put those products into action. Over spring break 2009, 20 Rice MBA students traveled to Kigali, Rwanda where they refined and implemented their business plans, introduced bio-medical products – such as a low-cost neonatal warmer and a lab-in-abackpack – sourced their material, and helped Rwandan entrepreneurs launch their own businesses to produce and sell the products. The Rice MBA students applied “bottom of the pyramid” Patrick Porter (MBA ’09), discusses possibilities with Rwandan entrepreneurs. principles and recognized that financial success could be derived through social entrepreneurship. They faced and surmounted many local challenges born from economic realities, as well as cultural sensitivities and concerns. Still, they discovered effective and innovative ways to obtain certification, and then to manufacture, distribute and market these products.

International Trips Every year Rice MBA students may choose to embark on an international trip. This past year we offered trips to China, Dubai, and Mexico. Itineraries include visits to corporate offices, U.S. embassies and plant sites, as well as alumni and prospective student events. On the China and Mexico trips, students take mini-courses at Rice’s partner universities, Tsinghua University, Tongji University, and ITESM.

We had more than 120 students take part in our international trips, a 66 percent increase compared to last year. For the 2009-2010 school year, we will be offering trips to China, India, South America (Brazil and Argentina), and Mexico.

Donor Honor Roll Alumni participation in annual giving is again at an astonishing 20 percent for the 2009 fiscal year. This participation metric for the last three years has been very respectable – 19 percent in FY07, 20 percent in FY08 and 20 percent in FY09 – and is in line with participation rates of the top 25 business schools in the nation. Most Jones School alumni who make financial contributions to the school support the Jones Fund. This is the annual fund of the Jones Graduate School of Business and provides general operating funds for the school. More than 70 percent of the Jones Fund from FY09 will support scholarships this year. It will also fund international travel programs, career management services and student-alumni networking events. The Jones Fund has grown significantly over the past three years and reached its goal of $400,000 in FY09.
