Introducing the Next Generation of Undergraduates to Business Education and Careers

Rutgers Business School – NextUP is a highly selective program offered by the Office of Diversity Programs. The NextUP program is a signature program included in the Pathways Leading to Undergraduate Success (RBS – PLUS) diversity programs portfolio.
