Your Rice MBA and Houston – It’s Closer Than You Think
MBA for Executives- Weekend Program

Rice MBA has introduced a residency program for students commuting from outside the city. Experienced professionals can earn an MBA at one of the nation's leading business schools without career interruption, attending classes just two weekends a month for 22 months. 

Consider the benefits of taking what you learn in the classroom and applying that knowledge to the workplace immediately. Form lasting relationships with locally-based faculty and fellow students who are active executives in the Houston business community.

Situated on Rice University's lush 285-acre campus, the Jones Graduate School of Business offers students the advantages of having faculty, staff, career management, admissions and student services accessible in one place. An additional cost of $6000 is required for accommodations for Friday and Saturday night at the Doubletree by Hilton Houston Greenway Plaza, located a few miles from campus. Complimentary shuttle services to and from the school is also included. For more information, contact the Rice MBA Admissions office at 713-348-4918.
