The future of work is changing
Lifelong Learning for Lifelong Employability
The future of education is changing. The Rutgers Stackable Business Innovation (rSBI) program allows you to design your own cutting-edge curriculum without having to commit to a degree program. The term ‘stackable’ means students can earn course credits at their own discretion and apply them toward a non-degree certificate.
The nature of work is also changing. Keeping up with the latest trends in business has become a career imperative. Build on your knowledge and earn a certificate by stacking courses together, becoming a subject matter expert (SME) for your company and your resume. Many of these course credits can then be transferred toward completing a Master’s degree.
The rSBI program offers three ways to earn a certificate:
- Take individual Courses in a specific subject area to enhance your knowledge on that topic.
- Stack Courses towards a Concentration where you can earn a certificate in that subject matter.
- Take a 1-credit Short Course that best fits your educational needs.

All applicants will be asked to submit undergraduate transcripts, a resume, and a short essay explaining their interest in the program and their academic and/or professional background.
Additional documentation, such as standardized test scores, graduate transcripts, or letters of recommendation, may be requested based on the status of the applicant and the criteria of the academic department.
By choosing only the courses you need and enrolling at your own pace, it will be more affordable to manage the cost of your education.
