Excellence.  Rutgers Business School-Newark and New Brunswick offers Rutgers-quality business education, delivered by a world-class faculty operating across two campuses:  Rutgers-Newark and Rutgers-New Brunswick.

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is one of the nation’s oldest, largest, and most distinguished institutions of higher learning in the nation.  Founded in 1766, it is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities, a highly selective organization comprising the 63 top research universities in North America.  It is supported by a network of more than 380,000 alumni.

Rutgers Business School-Newark and New Brunswick (RBS) was founded in 1929 and has been accredited since 1941 by AACSB International.  Today it is the hallmark of excellence in business education in a state renowned for its leadership in entrepreneurship and corporate innovation. 

Its undisputed leadership in New Jersey puts it in the top three business schools in the New York metropolitan area.  The Undergraduate Program in New Brunswick has been ranked #3 by The Wall Street Journal for producing the best graduates according to recruiters. The MBA Program has been ranked #18 by US News & World Report in job placement. The Executive MBA Program has been ranked in the Top 25 EMBA programs in the world by The Wall Street Journal.

Diversity.  Benefiting from its location in New Jersey, Rutgers has long been a national leader in enrolling students of all ethnicities, nationalities, faiths, and social backgrounds and in attracting outstanding minority and foreign-born scholars to its faculty.  Among United States universities with high minority enrollments, it is also known for the high graduation rates for these students and for the unusually high representation of minority groups on its faculty.  Its Newark campus has been consistently rated as the most diverse university campus in the nation by US News and World Report and Fortune.

RBS’s diverse student body includes 4,500 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at Newark, New Brunswick, and five satellite locations in New Jersey and Asia.  It offers two undergraduate programs, one in a suburban setting on the Livingston campus of Rutgers-New Brunswick and one in the downtown urban setting of Rutgers-Newark. 

The students in RBS’s undergraduate business programs include both children of New Jersey’s leaders and first-generation college students who have demonstrated their talents in unconventional ways.  Lower-income students of all ethnicities are able to attend RBS because of support from New Jersey’s Equal Opportunity Fund and from scholarships provided by Rutgers alumni. Its diverse graduate programs draw on faculty and other resources based on both campuses. 

Access.  RBS’s academic programs provide students from New Jersey and around the world access to a first-rate business education.  Our partnerships with scientific and technological disciplines at Rutgers give our students access to new skills businesses need in the information economy.  Our partnerships with leading corporations provide our graduates access to opportunities in the global economy.

All our undergraduate and graduate programs attract students from across the world, and many provide unique opportunities.  We offer both general and specialized master’s level training, for example, in pharmaceutical management and governmental accounting.  Our doctoral program, one of the largest in the nation, produces superb business teachers and researchers.

The corporations and other businesses that partner with RBS help provide truly experienced faculty for many of our programs and help us in many other ways to offer business experience, wisdom, and career opportunities to our students.
