Rice MBA ranks in top 20 nationally

HOUSTON – Rice University's Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is among the top 20 full-time MBA programs in the nation, according to new rankings from the Financial Times. In addition, the program at the Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Business is still best in Texas and the Southwest. Last year the program ranked No. 21.

"We are pleased with the continued recognition from publications such as Financial Times on the quality of our programs, students and faculty research," said Bill Glick, dean of the Jones School. "Considering the increase in application volume, increasing selectivity and the ongoing development and recruitment of world-class faculty, I am very happy with the positive momentum in the rankings." 

The Rice MBA Full-Time Program provides students with a comprehensive MBA learning experience that combines specialized course work and real-world experience to improve and amplify their strategy, leadership and creative credentials. The program features innovative classes, expert faculty and a diverse group of candidates who often become colleagues for a lifetime. Unlike other rankings, the Financial Times also considers alumni success three years postgraduation. On this metric, Rice MBA alumni rank16th in salary increase.  

The Jones Graduate School of Business is consistently recognized by several rankings publications for its programs, including the Rice MBA, Rice MBA for Executives and Rice MBA for Professionals. For more information on Rice MBA programs, visit
