“The formula for the consistent success of the Rutgers EMBA "Powerhouse" in the global rankings is really very simple: You design a curriculum that adapts constantly and mimics the skills and expertise needed in the real world today, tomorrow, and have it taught by professors who can leverage the tremendous experience embedded in our amazing students. You then back this up with a staff that makes it all run like clockwork, and you ensure the most important ingredient---a conspicuous and refreshing absence of attitude in the classroom, and that's how you get a winning Powerhouse program! This is truly a collaborative program; one big family of participants who look out for each other for years and years after graduation.” -Farrokh Langdana, EMBA Director
