Welcome to Rice. Here, you will discover a place that is passionate about teaching, undergraduate research and leadership development. We are a diverse community and support a student body from all economic backgrounds and ethnicities.
With a graduate student population of approximately 2,800, Rice’s graduate programs are large enough to offer research topics in several important areas of study, but small enough to offer close, personal contact between faculty and students.
Our distinctive degree programs focus on the qualities that mark the successful leader. A rigorous curriculum designed and delivered by a faculty of experts provides a comprehensive intellectual framework for business principles.
The mission of the Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies is to further Rice University’s commitment to educational outreach by providing lifelong personal and professional development opportunities to the greater Houston community and beyond.
Our open enrollment, customized and specialty programs provide you and your organization with the opportunity to take charge of your personal and professional development.
Determining the right school comes down to several factors — often, the biggest one is affordability. At Rice, we believe that talent deserves opportunity. The brightest students shouldn't just envision themselves here, but also have confidence they can embrace the full Rice experience.
