Pharmaceutical Industry Scholarships

The Rutgers MBA in Pharmaceutical Management comes with an unparalleled opportunity for a special few. Each year, Rutgers Business School, in collaboration with the program's board of advisers, selects a handful of students to participate in our prestigious Industry Scholars Program. Indicative of the commitment of the sponsors to the program, Industry Scholars will receive:

  • A full scholarship covering in- or out-of-state tuition and fees.
  • An internship opportunity at a sponsor company (conditional on satisfactory performance in the MBA program and interview with the sponsoring company).
  • The opportunity to attend seminars and on-site programs at pharmaceutical facilities.
  • An enhanced opportunity for employment in the pharmaceutical industry.

 

Eligibility

Applicants wishing to be considered for the Industry Scholars program should:

  • Be admitted to the Traditional Full-Time MBA program
  • Be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident
  • Have a relatively high GMAT score
  • Have an undergraduate GPA of 3.2 or above
  • Have three or more years of business experience (work in the fields of pharma, healthcare, and science are preferred)
  • Have demonstrated leadership potential

In addition, applicants should be goal oriented, possess excellent communication skills and have a demonstrated record of superior achievement.

Candidates meeting these criteria are invited for an interview with a selection committee that includes members of the program's board of advisers and/or other representatives from the sponsoring companies. The committee makes the final decision on the awarding of scholarships.
