Rutgers School of Business, Camden

Rutgers University Traditional MBA Program Structure

During the fall and spring semesters at Rutgers School of Business, Camden (RSBC), classes meet once per week. Each semester runs for 15 weeks and includes a one-week examination period. Evening classes meet from 6 p.m. to 8:50 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. There are also classes held on Saturdays. The summer session and winter sessions (“winterim”), are each offered online only. Summer session is 12 weeks long and Winterim is a three-week session. The length of the full-time variation of the program is 24 months

A part-time option is available as well, which takes 36 months to complete. Students must complete between 42-54 credits to complete the program, depending on waiver availability.

Curriculum

The Rutgers University Traditional MBA curriculum consists of 54 credits: 15 courses worth 45 credits comprise the core and nine credits are gained through electives. Within the core, four courses may be waived, which translates to 12 credits. These courses are Managerial Economics, Managerial Skills, Quantitative Skills and Accounting for Financial Reporting. Waivers are granted when comparable coursework has been completed within the last ten years at a four-year accredited institution. RSBC does not grant waivers for coursework completed at a community college or for related professional experience. Finally, to round out the curriculum, students must complete three elective courses. Electives fall into one of five concentrations: entrepreneurship, finance, marketing, management or international business/operations. Students may also fulfill the elective requirement by taking classes at the School of Law in Camden after gaining approval from the Associate Dean of the School of Law.

In addition, Traditional MBA students may participate in the South Africa Study Project, held each year during spring break. During this 12-day trip, 25 MBA and RSBC undergraduate students travel to South Africa and visit local businesses and government officials. Students must apply to participate, and those who complete the trip receive three credits.

Finally, Rutgers offers students the opportunity to pursue a dual degree program–within the wider Rutgers University: the JD/MBA. Students interested in the JD/MBA program must apply to and gain acceptance from each school independently. Once accepted into the programs, students can count 12 credits from the School of Business toward their law degree and vice versa with 12 credits from the School of Law counting toward their MBA degrees
