Hard to believe that the semester is already nearly half-way over!! This week, we are welcoming an ever-growing number of corporate representative to our Annual Corporate Reception, followed the next day by the PSM Board Meeting. Students have been busy sending out resumes and applications to companies of their interest looking for internship opportunities this summer and fall.

Faculty has been reviewing new applications for Fall 2014 and offer letters will be sent out soon. Preview Day for accepted F14 students is tentatively scheduled for March 28th! Domestic students will receive invitations in the next week to attend this very popular annual event to learn more about our programs, meet our faculty and discover the beautiful campus of Rice University.
In May, we are also expecting a solid number of students to graduate and heading out with their new degrees into industry and business.

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.
NOTE TO COMPANIES AND ORGANIZATIONS: If you need intelligent and hard-working interns for your projects, please contact us!
