Rice’s MBA for Professionals program ranked 8th by BusinessWeek
In a just released BusinessWeek ranking of part-time MBA programs, the Rice MBA for Professionals ranked 8th among the top 30 part-time MBA programs in the U.S.
The Rice MBA for Professionals, which started in 2006, is the Jones Graduate School’s most recent MBA offering. From its inception, the Jones Graduate School has provided the quality curriculum and teaching expertise expected from a Rice graduate program. The Rice MBA for Professionals offers working professionals a curriculum on parity with the School’s other programs — the Rice MBA Full-Time and the Rice MBA for Executives. The same faculty teach in all three Rice MBA programs, and all classes are taught at McNair Hall on the Rice campus.
The BusinessWeek methodology behind the ranking is based on three factors — student satisfaction with the MBA experience, the importance of the program in achieving the student’s career goals, and the program’s academic quality. More information about the BusinessWeek ranking can be found here.
