The Power of Connection
We take networking seriously in the Rutgers Executive MBA program.
From the moment you join the Powerhouse, you are connecting with those around you and those who've gone before you. That's the benefit of being part of a program filled with experienced professionals and executives—the REMBA Alumni Networking Upgrade.
This isn't your average networking experience. This is about building a powerful and dynamic community committed to helping one another succeed.

EMBA alumni are among healthcare workers battling Covid-19
Alumni in the News
EMBA Powerhouse Healthcare Professional Network
This group is for EMBA healthcare professionals who may be working in one of the many related fields of Healthcare. Emba alumni who are Doctors and Nurses, or in any other clinical roles, hospital administrators, HC consulting, technology (designing and deploying HC Platforms) and life sciences. The goal is to leverage the deep knowledge, networks, and skill sets held by EMBA professionals who are working in the healthcare field.
The EMBA healthcare professionals network seeks to regularly host curated events focused around the latest emerging and innovative technologies, networking, educational opportunities, and guest speakers in the field. Past events have focused on integration of healthcare systems, data analytics, healthcare block chain and healthcare management in clinical research and treatment outcomes.
This network came alive during the COVID-19 Crisis when Powerhouse Doctors, Nurses, Clinicians and Hospital Administrators were calling and emailing for help with PPE. The Rutgers EMBA Healthcare Network---in fact the whole REMBA alumni network---deployed fast, to quickly come to the rescue.
I would not have been able to reach the C-suite without the education I received at RBS in the EMBA Program.

Opportunities to network within the EMBA program and Rutgers Business School abound. Here's a sampling of our EMBA-exclusive opportunities.
Throughout the year, our EMBAs are invited to attend the Powerhouse Series, a compilation of certificate offerings and informative panel discussions on the latest trends and topics.
Every June, when the EMBA class visits China for 10 days, we conduct networking sessions in Beijing and Shanghai with alumni from the China programs formerly offered by Rutgers. These are very well attended, and often are the first steps in forming strong networking alliances across the Pacific.
EMBA Golf Classics
Golf events are organized by the current classes and alumni, and are held at local golf courses.
Golf is followed by dinner and, of course, vigorous networking all day! Often, golf classes for first-time golfers are also arranged. If golf is not your thing, students and alumni may attend only for dinner and networking.
Rutgers Business School Community
As a Rutgers Executive MBA student, not only do you have access to EMBA-exclusive events, you are part of the greater RBS community and have access to attend many other events and workshops outside of the program.
