  • 22-month program on alternating weekends (Friday and Saturday)
  • Four required week-long executive forums
  • Mandatory international forum

Engaging Faculty

All Rice MBA courses are taught by a dedicated, nationally-recognized team of professors who create an engaging, challenging learning environment. These faculty members maintain an important balance between teaching and research, integrating insights from their own rigorous, peer-reviewed research and helping students understand these topics in the context of today’s ever-changing business landscape. Visit Rice Business Wisdom for examples of our peer-reviewed business research presented in a compelling, quick-to-read package.

Members of our faculty also implicitly nurture skills and traits that are critical to success for tomorrow’s leaders. In every course, students have an opportunity to work one-on-one with an accessible, involved and energetic member of the faculty, who believes that academic research and current industry knowledge are as critical as textbooks to a student’s education.
