And your classmates stay friends for life. Live, study and play on a spectacular tree-lined campus nestled in the heart of Houston. Come be a part of our small but mighty campus.

Connected to The World

Rice Business offers international opportunities for all MBA students in the country of your choice.

Invest in Your Future

A Rice MBA is worth the investment. Let our finance professor James Weston calculate the ROI of an MBA from Rice Business to help you make your decision.


Big City. Big Connections.

Houston is the most diverse and the 4th largest city in the U.S. Houston's work-friendly culture is ideal for MBA degree holders. The average cost of living in Houston is 25.8 percent lower than that of other major U.S cities. Large, small and nascent companies gravitate here for the city's business-above-all environment. Use your MBA degree in a city where you can BE SOMEONE.
