Rice University's online MBA program has something to brag about. According to a new report, the program has risen through the ranks of other online MBA curriculums.
Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business placed in the top 10 of five categories in The Princeton Review’s latest rankings of the Best Business Schools for 2021, including the No. 6 spot for its newest program, MBA@Rice.
Rice Business ranked highly in both the On-Campus MBA and Online MBA classifications. MBA@Rice graduated its first cohort this past May, making it eligible to be ranked.
The Princeton Review rankings are based on data from its surveys of nearly 24,000 students enrolled in MBA programs at 369 schools and of administrators at those schools. Among the factors assessed were career outcomes, technological infrastructure, academic rigor and affordability.
Rice Business was in the top 10 in the following categories:
On-Campus MBA Programs
- Best MBA for Finance — No. 5.
- Most Competitive Students — No. 5.
- Best MBA for Consulting — No. 6.
- Best Classroom Experience — No. 10.
- Top 50 Online MBA Programs — No. 6.
“All courses at Rice Business are taught by a team of dedicated, nationally recognized faculty who integrate insights from their own rigorous, peer-reviewed research to help students understand topics in accounting, finance, marketing, organizational behavior and strategy in the context of today’s business landscape,” said Rice Business Dean Peter Rodriguez.
