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.

For example, emergent topics include:

  • Data Analytics. 
  • Machine Learning.

  • Supply Chain Sustainability.
  • Workplace Governance.

These are only a fraction of new knowledge domains you need to know to be relevant right now. 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.
