Our open enrollment, customized, and specialty programs, provides you and your organization the opportunity to take charge of your personal and professional development, and your organization’s performance.

Open enrollment programs include our Accelerated Development Program, which is our most exclusive program as well as certificate programs in leadership, finance and accounting for non-financial managers; and a menu of individual courses.

Our custom programs are contextually designed to help organizations develop solutions to their most challenging problems. 

We have two specialty certificate programs, one for physician trainees and one for health care leaders and executives. These courses are designed to increase the leadership capability and business acumen of professionals within the health care industry. 

Faculty

All of our programs are taught by our world-class business school faculty who are prolific researchers in their areas of expertise, and have won numerous prestigious teaching awards. Additionally, our executive education faculty leverages their consulting experience and the professional experience of classroom participants to co-create a rich learning environment.

Learning and Development Approach

Our programs and courses are deliberately designed to maximize learning and transfer of knowledge by incorporating assessments, lecture, case studies, group activity, simulations, and coaching. Our blended teaching methodology results in a highly engaged classroom and deep learning.

What our students are saying about Executive Education: 

"The Rice Accelerated Development Program provided me an opportunity to reflect and refine my leadership style.  It was delivered using an interactive learning environment allowing me to safely practice and accelerate my personal development by use of a professional coach, hands on module, role playing, and multiple case studies.  Perhaps one of the most valuable elements of the course is the different leadership talent from a variety of different industries that enrolls with you." - Michelle Boven, Dow Chemical (Accelerated Development Program)

"Handling a 9-person team, all very young and from different cultures; after this program, I got lots of ideas that if I can translate it into actions, will not only allow me to grow as a leader, but also [my colleagues], as a team and as professionals."  Vanina Martinez, Tenaris (Custom Program)
