With a focus on Rice undergrad students we are spreading the word about opportunities for Rice students to line their study plans up to create a pathway into our professional master's degree which - with good planning - they could finish
in a 5th
year of studies at Rice, completing their B.S. and their M.S. degrees back-to-back.
We also have seen a higher interest in our dual
PSM/MBA tracks by incoming students who have to apply to both programs at the same time to be able to qualify for this opportunity.
