Global Programs

Global Field Experience

Our immersive international learning experience, built into the core curriculum for all MBA programs, lets you take what you learn in the first year of the program and apply it to short-term projects for organizations and communities in diverse cultural settings. It will change your perception of the world and the way you do business in it.

Global Offsite Electives

Every year, our faculty members lead international trips abroad and host courses in those countries for credit. These optional courses give you the chance to gain exposure to different cultures, make business contacts, hear from dynamic speakers and network with local alumni.

Group of MBA students

Want to develop your international outlook even more? You can choose to study abroad for a semester at one of our partner institutions  Or take advantage of the opportunity to attend seminars hosted by business schools around the world.

Jon Hines

The GFE is an absolute game-changer. It's a real consulting project with a company worthy of success who needs your help. Getting to know the company and its challenges [before] the in-country experience is fascinating, and getting to meet with them in person and modifying your recommendations based on seeing their very different culture is extremely exciting.

From the beginning we could feel the passion and their commitment to helping us. The [students] helped us to understand ourselves better as entrepreneurs. We feel a part of the Rice Business family, and this has been an absolute game changer for our company.
