Lifelong Learning 

We invite all Rice MBA graduates to benefit from the multitude of continuing education and professional development opportunities offered by Rice University and the Jones Graduate School of Business.

Executive Education Open Enrollment Programs
(20% discount for Alumni)
Executive Education holds a number of open enrollment courses that can be taken as individual programs or as part of a certificate program. Rice MBA graduates receive a 20 percent discount on all Executive Education open enrollment courses.

Custom Programs
Executive Education can also design a custom corporate program specifically for your company’s needs. For more information about customizing a program, contact Laura Ellenberger or Jonathan Harvey.

Class Audits
Based on availability, you may also come back to the Jones School and audit an elective class in the MBA program. It can be a class that you didn’t get an opportunity to take during your time here, or it may be that you need a refresher on a class you took some years ago. Either way, please take a look and maybe we can help! Unofficial audits cost $100; official audits can be taken for $415.

Class Audit Process:

1. View the Spring 2014 class schedule (pdf) and determine which class(es) you would like to audit.

2. Contact the professor of the class(es) and request permission to audit.

3. Once you have received permission to audit from the professor, forward the approval to the JGSB registrar, Maria Johnson.

4. Click on the registration link and submit the audit registration form to complete the process.

To inquire about these opportunities, please contact Maria Johnson in the MBA Programs Office.

Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies

Rice University's Glasscock School offers a host of courses and programs ranging from non-profit managerial training to language programs. Alumni receive a nominal discount on select programs.
