Rice - Jones Announces New Part-Time MBA Option

New flexible option allows for program completion in between three and five years

Rice University's Jones Graduate School of Business has announced the launch of a new part-time MBA program option.

The new "Extended Professional Evening MBA Program" allows for more flexibility than Jones' other part-time offerings, by allowing students to complete the program in between three and five years. (Jones' existing Professional MBA options are delivered in a lock-step format over two years.)

In the new Extended Evening MBA Program, students will take classes one night per week after the first semester. The curricular requirements will be the same as for Jones' other part-time MBA options. 

Rice - Jones will continue to offer its other Professional MBA program options as usual. In the Evening option, students generally attend classes two nights per week, along with the occasional Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. In the Weekend option, classes are delivered on alternating weekends. In addition to covering a wide range of core business topics, these programs also offer a specialization in healthcare.

All Professional MBA options include a capstone component, where students can apply their learning to a real-world business environment.

Rice - Jones is ranked as a top-ten school in Businessweek's part-time MBA ranking.

To apply for Jones' Professional MBA programs, candidates must submit either a GMAT or GRE score, as well as recommendations and other documentation. The program is set to launch in fall 2015.
