Student Support, Engagement, and Leadership (SEAL)

The Office of Student Support, Engagement, and Leadership (RBS SEAL) at Rutgers Business School facilitates valuable experiences, including mentorship, leadership development, and engagement activities for our graduate and undergraduate students, with the goal of guiding and preparing the next generation of successful business leaders.

Our alumni and corporate partners have a unique opportunity to impact a future generation of business leaders through our mentorship programs. Join our mentor pool or inquire about sponsorship opportunities, and help transform our students into star business professionals.


This mentoring program seeks to help in the transformation of Rutgers Business School undergraduates into responsible business professionals. Students accepted into the program will consult one-on-one with a business professional to obtain insights about the nature of their profession, as well as guidance on how to grow and prosper within the profession.

Nearly 500 business professionals in the area have joined the TeamUP program as mentors. As a result of TeamUP, students report being more confident about both interacting with professionals and charting their professional path ahead.

Women BUILD (Business Undergraduates in Leadership Development) is a leadership program for high-achieving, motivated, and talented undergraduates at Rutgers Business School. This program engages select students of all identities who are dedicated to gender equity in business and are passionate about women’s leadership. BUILD offers students the opportunity to reach their full leadership potential as business students and empowers them to work toward their future as the next generation of business leaders committed to excellence in business, ethical judgment, and global perspective.

Women BUILD works in conjunction with major corporations who support its mission. Students in the program will have the opportunity to engage on a regular basis with BUILD’s corporate sponsors as well as senior executives with sustained connections to Rutgers Business School.

Being in the Women BUILD Program has made me feel like I am a part of something so much bigger than myself and that I get to share that experience with some of the most wonderful women I have come across. I will cherish the memories I make in this program forever and always.

The interactions and networking opportunities we have within the Women BUILD program is amazing. I created life-long connections within Rutgers Business School and outside professionals that push us to be more than what society expects. I know that these are the same women that I am going to cross paths with in the future, and having a strong common ground of being in BUILD will help us connect.
