Prospective Students

Admission to the RBS Undergraduate–New Brunswick program is competitive and based on a careful evaluation of the academic qualifications of each candidate in accordance with policies and procedures established by the school’s Committee on Admissions and University regulations. The selective admissions policy is designed to deal with the size limitation of the school and growing student demand in an equitable manner.  Students are admitted for fall semester only. We do not admit students for the spring semester at Rutgers Business School Undergraduate-New Brunswick.

The Undergraduate programs of study are designed to provide an integrated course of study combining a liberal arts foundation, with a professional specialization in one of the broad functional areas of business. The school offers programs in Accounting, Business Analytics and Information Technology (BAIT), Finance, Leadership and Management, Marketing, and Supply Chain Management. In addition to a business major, and to qualify for the Bachelor of Science degree, a student must also complete a set of liberal arts area requirements and general electives for a total of 120 degree credits.

Students may be admitted to Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate - New Brunswick as first year students or as transfer students (entering sophomore or junior year) from another Rutgers University school or a college or university outside of Rutgers University.  In addition, students must satisfy a set of pre-business courses and a specific cumulative grade point average before they can declare a major and begin taking business core and major courses.  All students admitted are required to maintain a competitive cumulative grade point average prior to declaring their business major.  Students applying to Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate - New Brunswick for the sophomore or junior year must also meet a specific cumulative grade point average which is determined during the application review.

Because the mission of the program is to provide an undergraduate education, priority is given to those applicants who are pursuing their first bachelor's degree.  Those who already have a bachelor's degree and are interested in business education should give serious consideration to continuing their studies in Rutgers Business School’s MBA program.
