Flex MBA Program

Ranked #9 in Mid-Atlantic region by Bloomberg Businessweek

Rutgers Business School’s part-time MBA program has been reengineered to become the Flex MBA Program. The Flex MBA program allows students to customize their MBA experience. A Flex MBA student may take a part-time load or a full-time load.  The Flex MBA is also an excellent option for professionals who wish to further their career but want to continue working while earning their MBA degree. Bloomberg Businessweek recently ranked Rutgers #9 in the Mid-Atlantic region for its part-time MBA program, which constitutes the Flex MBA [read story].

This 60-credit MBA program is offered completely in Newark and New Brunswick with satellite locations in Jersey City and Madison. These convenient locations in state-of-the-art facilities make obtaining a Rutgers MBA realistic for working professionals.

The only courses not open to Flex MBA students are the Traditional Full-time MBA cohort core courses. Otherwise it is the same curriculum as the Traditional Full-Time MBA program, unlike some part-time MBA programs. Rutgers Flex MBA has also introduced the added flexibility of taking classes online for select courses.

The Rutgers Flex MBA Experience

The Flex MBA is an excellent option for those students who want to pursue a customized or extended concentration. Consultants and entrepreneurs will find the extraordinary flexibility particularly appealing.

Students can begin the Flex MBA at any time: in the fall semester, in the spring semester, or in the summer session. For those applicants who have not yet taken the GMAT/GRE, they may apply to take classes as a non-matriculated student at one of our satellite locations in Madison or Jersey City. Students already pursuing a bachelor’s degree and admitted to the Future Leaders Program at Rutgers (BS or BA/MBA) can begin the Flex MBA while completing their bachelor’s.

Flex MBA students must complete a minimum of 30 credits and be free of any contractual employment obligations, among other requirements, before registering with the MBA Office of Career Management.

“I have been blessed to have had some really amazing instructors during my MBA journey. I was not especially looking forward to Accounting, in fact, it scared me, but in walked Ira Zecher. With years of industry experience and a passion for accounting, he made the material understandable, engaging and compelling. I always left his class excited about what I was learning.”

Dana McGraw, class of 2015

“I chose the MBA program at Rutgers Business School for its reputation, ranking, and location. Rutgers is consistently ranked one of the best business schools in the world. Their reputation of building strong business leaders is showcased by their current students and loyal alumni base. Lastly, they are conveniently located between Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, D.C. which provides access to some of the world’s best companies.”
