The Rutgers master of business and science (M.B.S.) degree requires a total of
43 credits, consisting of 24 credits in the sciences, mathematics, or
engineering; 16 credits in business, management of science and technology, and ethics;
and a 3-credit capstone course working on a team business case/plan.
The science, mathematics, or
engineering courses are concentrated in a particular discipline. Some are provided
by existing degree programs (e.g., food science), others are offered by a group
of faculty members across two or more standing degree programs (e.g., drug discovery, analytics, sustainability). For a current list of science concentrations, please visit http://mbs.rutgers.edu.
The business courses include finance and accounting, marketing
for sciences and technology, communication and leadership, two business electives, a
lecture series colloquium, and a course on ethics and professionalism. The final
course is a capstone course that focuses on entrepreneurship and
intrapreneurship--understanding intellectual property, evaluating a new
technology, and writing a business plan.
