Business Bridge Program

Do you want to pursue the major of your choice AND pursue a career in business? Round out your resume for job interviews with for and non-profit corporations, government institutions, and graduate school. The Business Bridge Program at Rice University is a rigorous opportunity for students to accelerate their business knowledge and exposure to business principles. This four-week summer intensive complements any non-business undergraduate degree, and attendees will learn the foundations of business, work in teams with peers, and experience a career-focused extracurricular schedule with visits to and project work with Fortune 500 companies. Spend summer break in a rich environment, learning from the faculty at the Jones Graduate School of Business and integrating knowledge with corporate learning projects.

After the program, students will be able to:


    Analyze a business through a framework typically found in an MBA curriculum
    Present themselves professionally in oral and written communication
    Connect coursework with business challenges
    Add a business certificate to their resume

The Business Bridge Program will be in session June 2-27, 2014 and is open to rising undergraduate juniors through those who have graduated in the last two years. Students and alumni from Rice and other universities are eligible.


Tuition for the Summer 2014 Business Bridge Program is $10,500 for residential students and $9,500 for nonresidential students.
