  The curriculum allows experienced professionals to examine business concepts and issues from a strategic perspective. Classes meet every other Friday and Saturday for two years, with breaks at Christmas and over the summer. Each semester is divided into 2 terms, with an Intensive Learning Workshop (ILW) occurring between each first and second term. First year classes provide students with a base in essential functional areas, including accounting, finance, leadership, strategy and marketing. The ILWs provide an experiential learning opportunity for students to further explore negotiation, communication, and other managerial skills in the context of these functional areas. In the second year, students may take electives in order to examine functional areas in greater detail. They must also complete one international course and several capstones. The International Business Briefing, which satisfies the international requirement, brings students to a foreign country to learn about cultural differences in the business world. Students must complete 57 credit-hours in order to graduate. The Rice MBA for Executives is accredited by AACSB International.
