About Our Executive MBA Program
Designed for leaders and experienced executives, our Executive MBA curriculum focuses on experiential, integrated learning. We open and close each academic year with 5-day intensives that target development of an executive mindset. Executive MBA students follow a core curriculum in their first year, then choose from 100+ electives in their second year.
We offer leadership and strategy executive forums and seminars focused on building an executive mindset. We develop leaders with core courses in functional areas, enhanced by a network of like-minded classmates, and capped with an overseas trip focused on creating the mindset to lead the global firm. We are confident that earning an Executive MBA at Rice Business will help you be the leader you were meant to be.
Throughout the program, you will work with an experienced executive coach to fill identified gaps in your leadership portfolio. Each executive coach provides support in formalizing and executing a personal strategic development plan. The coaching program complements the leadership development curriculum, providing a safe environment for challenging assumptions and promoting new thinking. It's one of the reasons why we're the best Executive MBA program in Houston.
