Jones School welcomes new Executive Education team member

 Amber Ivins

Amber Ivins joined the Jones Graduate School of Business as the new director of marketing and business development in Rice Executive Education on March 11.

A learning and organizational development professional, Ivins comes to the Jones School from the executive education department at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business where she was assistant director.

"We are delighted to have Amber join us,” said Brent Smith, associate dean and associate professor of management and psychology. “She comes to us with seven years of experience at Fuqua's executive education department and Duke Continuing Education. Her experience at a premier provider of global executive education will be a terrific asset to our department."

Completing a smooth transition from North Carolina, Ivins looks forward to 'getting the word out' about open enrollment. “I also want to learn from everyone about the rodeo, Texas style BBQ, and navigating traffic, so please stop by my office any time.” With undergrad and MBA degrees from Duke, she considers herself an expert on March Madness and is happy to help with any tournament bracket predictions.

Ivins earned an MBA from the Fuqua School of Business and a B.S. in economics and French and European studies from Duke University.
