No GMAT Score Required for New Jersey Residents

We realize that in these uncertain times, preparing for a standardized test can be a barrier to starting your MBA journey. If you live in New Jersey and are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you may apply without providing a test score. Rutgers Business School will waive the GMAT for NJ residents who meet these requirements:

  • 3.0 GPA or better
  • Three years of work experience or more
  • Establish math proficiency through short aptitude tests or online courses (no extra cost) prior to and during orientation

Substantial scholarships are available! 

Waivers may also be available to residents of other states with strong qualifications, or to NJ residents with extensive work experience, even if their undergraduate GPA is slightly below 3.0. (Being granted a GMAT/GRE waiver does not guarantee admission to the program.)

As of May 1, all applications are being considered on a rolling basis. Apply now and get a quick decision!

Rutgers STEM MBA Designation

The Rutgers Business School MBA is now a STEM-designated degree. The Rutgers STEM MBA program delivers on rigorous data-driven and analytical learnings that have been components of its management education since 1956. As a result, students who pursue this designation leave the program with the ability to apply technical, methodical, and innovative thought processes to business problems.

This designation opens new opportunities for you to customize your curriculum to align with your career goals and applies to all MBA concentrations. To achieve this, you must complete 50% of the total required degree credits for your program with courses that fall under STEM.

There is significant value to MBA candidates who earn this designation. Businesses today are more data-driven than before and are looking for employees who can take their analytics to another level. STEM signals to employers that you have the training and skills to tackle this challenge. International students with a STEM degree can extend their one year of OPT to a total of 36 months. This opportunity gives you an extended period to gain hands-on experience in a STEM-related field. The hard skills that you will learn are transferrable across industries and functions, which strengthens your ability to transition in your career.
