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; 15 credits in business and management of science and technology;
and 4 credits in integrated coursework, including a capstone course and a

The science, mathematics, or

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., sustainability). For a current list of science concentrations, please visit: http://psm.rutgers.edu.

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.
