Coordinated Degree Programs

For highly motivated students with specific career goals, Rice University offers three coordinated degree programs that pair the Rice MBA with advanced degrees in engineering, science, and medicine. Coordinated degrees capitalize on Rice University's close ties to leading research institutions and high-technology corporations in the Houston area.

Rice MBA/ME Program

The MBA/ME Program offers a Master of Business Administration from the Jones Graduate School of Business and a Master of Engineering from Rice's top-tier George R. Brown School of Engineering. Graduates will learn the skills necessary to lead technology firms through rapid change and development.

Rice MBA/PSM Program

The Jones Graduate School of Business offers a three-year coordinated degree option with the MBA and Professional Science Master's program at Rice's Wiess School of Natural Sciences, which offers MS degrees in Bioscience and Health Policy, Environmental Analysis and Decision Making, Nanoscale Physics, Subsurface Geoscience and Space Studies. Students complete courses in one of the three degrees along with management coursework for their MBA.

All MBA related questions can be directed to Paige Goodson, Assistant Director of Admissions. For questions and information on specific engineering departments, please contact the following:
