Global Offsite Electives
Each year Rice Business hosts courses abroad in which our faculty members lead international trips to other countries for credit. These optional sessions allow you to gain valuable exposure to different cultures, make business contacts, hear from dynamic speakers and network with local alumni.
These electives are available in your first and second year of the program, and are dependent on your program's academic calendar.
- Who is it for: All second year MBA students depended on academic calendar
- Duration: One to two weeks
- When: Varies but often during winter session
- Number of Credits: 1.5 credits
The safety and well-being of the Rice Business community is our top priority. We are working closely with Rice University to actively monitor local and global health concerns as a result of COVID-19. Please note we have cancelled the travel component of global courses, which includes Global Field Experiences and Global Offsite Electives, through December 31, 2020 and subject to extension in the spring.
