The Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University will offer an online MBA program in 2018.
The 54-credit will follow the same curriculum as the on-campus MBA, but it will combine synchronous online courses with pre-recorded and interactive course content. It includes on-campus and off-site residencies.
The degree can be finished in as little as 24 months.
The launch is pending review and approval from Rice University faculty senate and Rice's accreditor Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
