Baker Institute

HOUSTON – (Jan. 26, 2020) – The MBA@Rice program at Rice University’s Jones Graduate School of Business is No. 9 on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Online MBA Programs rankings for 2021.

Rice Business also earned the No. 6 spot among the best online MBA programs for veterans and the No. 11 spot for business analytics in an online MBA.

U.S. News & World Report used five categories in ranking programs: quality of engagement, opinion surveys, faculty credentials and training, student services and technologies, and student excellence.

Intentionally small class sizes and a vibrant entrepreneurship ecosystem set MBA@Rice apart, according to Rice Business Dean Peter Rodriguez.

“All courses at Rice Business are taught by a team of dedicated, nationally recognized faculty who integrate insights from their own rigorous, peer-reviewed research to help students understand topics in accounting, finance, marketing, organizational behavior and strategy in the context of today’s business landscape,” he said. “Today’s rankings are a reflection of the school’s commitment to excellence in teaching and serving our students.”

Successful business leaders master a blend of creativity collaboration and real-world know-how, Rodriguez said, and MBA@Rice is built on the same combination of innovation and practicality – MBA@Rice prepares students to work, communicate and present work in an increasingly digital world.
