Rice Business online MBA ranks No. 6 nationally, according to Poets&Quants

HOUSTON – (Nov. 27, 2023) – Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business ranks No. 6 nationally for its online Master of Business Administration program, according to Poets&Quants rankings released today. MBA@Rice is the fastest-growing program at the business school since its launch in 2018.

Just like the on-campus MBA, Rice Business’ online MBA includes the same dedicated, nationally recognized faculty who derive insights from their own peer-reviewed research to help students understand topics in accounting, finance, marketing, organizational behavior and strategy in the context of today’s business landscape.

The online MBA allows people from around the country to benefit from and contribute to Rice’s culture of excellence and community, school officials said.

“The online MBA has contributed to the culture of the school by engaging students outside of Texas and bringing them into the Rice Business experience through their faculty and through student government and club roles,” Rice Business Dean Peter Rodriguez said. “And alumni from this program are contributing, too. The newest alumni board president, for instance, hails from Boston via the online MBA program. Having an online MBA serving working professionals who may not have the option to study on campus allows us to broaden our reach and impact.”
