Your choice of electives in the Full Time program should complement your career objectives. After you have completed the core curriculum, customization of your degree is possible by choosing electives that establish depth in a particular area, or demonstrate a well-rounded perspective of business principles that span several functions. Independent study is available as an elective, in which you work with a faculty supervisor on an approved project that's relevant to your career path.

Concentrations are an optional component of the Rice MBA and are available to full-time students only.
