In April 1988, Rutgers University's Board of Governors established a school of business at Rutgers on the Camden campus. The School of Business-Camden received approval from the New Jersey Department of Higher Education in May 1988. The school then received accreditation through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) in 1995. In September 2008, the School of Business-Camden began directly admitting first-year students to the undergraduate program, and in 2010 it began offering a bachelor of arts in business administration to complement its bachelor of science degrees.
The undergraduate program at Rutgers School of Business-Camden prepares students for a wide range of professional positions with an innovative curriculum and world-class faculty. Rutgers faculty members have proven themselves through top-notch research and extensive business involvement. Their work has a significant and continual impact on our students and the business world.
The learning experience extends far beyond campus borders. The School of Business-Camden is known for its innovative study programs, international faculty, and providing opportunities to participate in international experiences. The international studies program offers intensive one-week study trips as an integral component of 3-credit courses. Participants and professors visit global businesses and government institutions to learn about the management and marketing practices of the region. Recent classes have visited South Africa, Brazil, and South East Asia, among others.
Our close proximity to Philadelphia and New York provides opportunities to experience the business world in two of the largest financial centers in the United States. Students will have the opportunity to gain real-world experience through our internship program, which places up to 100 students in small and large businesses, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations.
