Center for Urban Entrepreneurship & Economic Development

Entrepreneurship at Rutgers Business School

Providing students with a real-world experience that is applicable to any business career and training students to be smarter about economic policy are the central foci of courses provided through CUEED Fellows, other Rutgers faculty experts, and instructors who are entrepreneurs. Students are encouraged to generate new sources of enterprise, come up with innovative business ideas, and create new jobs.

Rutgers' ambitious, entrepreneurial and collaborative environment is the perfect place for students to get their business ideas rolling.


The Entrepreneurship minor/concentration is available to both Rutgers Business School and non-Rutgers Business School students in Newark and New Brunswick; as a result, all of the courses are comprised of both business and non-business majors. Such diversity allows for the generation of a variety of ideas and perspectives on problems. Students are advised to follow a course sequence that is structured such that basic business knowledge and skills are acquired before more advanced courses can be taken. While this sequence is advised for the benefit of those seeking the minor, it will not supersede the requirements for each course.

Current students should visit MyRBS for detailed information about entrepreneurship minor and concentration requirements.


The MBA Concentration in Technology Commercialization, Innovation and Entrepreneurship enables students to acquire and develop fundamental and essential skills and knowledge to ground their entrepreneurial zeal, imagination, and energy. Faculty are drawn from a range of backgrounds, training, and experiences. Our students can therefore enrich their understanding of entrepreneurship through lively interaction with our faculty, guest speakers, and their peers as they prepare to begin or continue their entrepreneurial endeavors. Some of the courses offered in the concentration: Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development; Evaluation of New Ventures; Social Entrepreneurship; Managing Growing Ventures; New Product Innovation; Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship; Management of Innovation and Technology; High Technology Independent Ventures.
