Rutgers School of Business, Camden - Traditional MBA
Rutgers University Traditional MBA Program Structure
During the fall and spring semesters at Rutgers School of Business, Camden (RSBC), classes will meet both remotely and in-person during the Covid-19 pandemic. 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 winter features a three-week session. The length of the full-time variation of the program is 24 months
The Rutgers University Traditional MBA curriculum consists of 18 courses (three of which are electives) comprising 54 credit hours. The core courses include 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. Students must complete three elective courses, which fall into one of four concentrations: digital marketing, business analytics, investment and private wealth, and strategic leadership.
In addition, Traditional MBA students may participate in study abroad programs to locations such as South Africa, Portugal, South Korea and China.
Finally, Rutgers offers students the opportunity to pursue a dual degree program–within the wider Rutgers University: the JD/MBA, or the DNP/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.
There are currently 82 students in the RSBC Traditional MBA program. These students are, on average, 30-years old, join with nine years of previous work experience and are majority female (56 percent). The GMAT average is 550.
Tuition, Scholarships, and Financial Aid
As Rutgers is a state university, RSBC posts different tuition rates for New Jersey residents and out-of-state residents.

Applicants to the Rutgers University-Camden Traditional MBA program are required to submit the following: the online application form, a $70 application fee, original undergraduate and graduate transcripts if applicable, two letters of recommendation, a personal statement of the applicant’s career objectives, GRE or GMAT scores (waived for 2021 due to Covid-19), and a current résumé.
