Lifelong Learning

Your education doesn’t stop once you graduate. We offer several ways you can continue lifelong learning and stay part of the Rice Business community. Whether you decide to return to the classroom to audit a class you didn’t have time for or come back for an Executive Education course to advance your career even further — at a special alumni rate — we’re here for you. 

The ability to continue to audit classes is a big reason why I went to Rice Business...auditing has provided a great way to go back and learn.
