Distinguished Alumni

Created in 2001, the Wall of Distinguished Business Alumni recognizes the business achievements of graduates of Rutgers, The State university of New Jersey and those schools that have since been incorporated therein. It ensures that the school maintains a permanent link with its past while inspiring current and future students to achieve.

The Wall of Distinguished Business Alumni was made possible by the generosity of Dick and Barbara Romano and the AT&T Foundation. The cast bronze plaque is the centerpiece of the lobby at 1 Washington Park- the Newark home of Rutgers Business School's graduate and undergraduate programs. Up to four plaques are placed on the wall annually. Alumni are selected through a nomination process.
