Rutgers Pharma MBA ranked one of the Top 10 MBA programs in pharmaceuticals in the world
Concentrating on business schools that would best help MBA grads land internships and jobs focused in health care, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, Rutgers Business School drew praise for being “close to big pharma companies like Johnson & Johnson and Bristol-Myers Squibb, as well as several large hospitals.”
The shortlist puts Rutgers Business School in the company of other top business schools around the world:
- Boston University – School of Management
- Copenhagen Business School
- Duke - Fuqua
- Minnesota - Carlson
- UPenn - Wharton
- Vanderbilt - Owen
Located in the heart of New Jersey’s bio-pharma corridor, Rutgers uses its geographic advantage to collaborate with pharmaceutical giants like Bayer Healthcare, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Eisai, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, and Novartis, which all sit on its board of advisors for the program.
MBA students who concentrate in pharmaceutical management have a unique opportunity to make connections and gain work experience to help advance their careers in the competitive healthcare industry.
