The Rice Business Experience—Delivered Online

Rice Business has long been a beacon of innovation, transformation and familial warmth in Houston. Today, that legacy—and our top-notch MBA education—is available to you from wherever you are. When we say top-notch, it’s not just about our exceptional faculty and rankings, but so much more.

Our online MBA experience is not like the others.. We believe curious minds grow in an environment that’s personal and collaborative, and we’ve designed the Rice Business digital campus and online MBA experience to deliver on that belief.

It Is Personal. And It Is Business.

Our online MBA program was created with online students in mind—accounting for where those students are and what they need from us to succeed both at work and at home. Whether you’re a busy professional, multitasking parent or military member serving your country, we’ve built an experience for you, and it’s based on real research that examines how online MBA students learn.

"Not only can I go anywhere, work anywhere and do anything, but I bring the skill set from MBA@Rice."

Live and Collaborative

Join professionals from different backgrounds and levels of expertise in weekly live classes led by distinguished Rice faculty. The online classroom is intuitive and collaborative by nature—you can expect engaging real-time discussion and virtual break-out rooms to work in smaller groups, as well as helpful in-class tools like the ability to record a session or annotate.

Engaging and Intuitive

Between weekly classes, you’ll complete assignments at a time that works best for you. Coursework is designed specifically for an online audience, featuring interactive modules, videos, readings, discussion forums and quizzes. Lively collaboration with classmates beyond the digital classroom is common. We encourage all of our students to meet with their peers and problem-solve in teams.

In-Person Learning:
Immersive and In-Depth

Intensive learning experiences—hosted on campus in Houston—and global learning experiences—from business hubs around the globe—allow you to take your education across both physical and cultural borders. During these experiences, you’ll connect with your peers and faculty in a whole new way, while applying your learning through challenging assignments that will require collaboration and critical thinking.
