With Rice Business, you will build the foundation you need to conduct business effectively — and then learn to think and work across teams so you can maximize output from every department within your organization.
Our curriculum will help develop your understanding of essential business principles such as financial accounting, business analytics, marketing strategy, leadership and finance. You’ll then learn to apply these larger concepts throughout an organization as you hone your skills in a focused specialization of study.
Rice Business has obtained STEM designation for all our MBA programs. The STEM designation is a direct response to the data-driven business environment, employer needs and student interest. Our Rice MBA graduates are known in the marketplace for broad problem-solving skills, reflecting a curriculum grounded in quantitative and data-analytic methodologies across the disciplines. This is now reflected in the STEM designation.
