Urban Environmental Analysis and Management

Urban environmental analysis and management is offered as a concentration at Rutgers University-Newark within the professional science master's program described under Business and Science 137. The environmental industry is a mix of advanced science to best delineate and remediate pollution problems and the management skills to market products and services, manage projects, and interact with state and federal regulatory agencies. To be successful in this industry, a unique set of skills are required that are not readily available in standard science or business programs.

For the master of business and science (M.B.S.) degree, students take eight courses (24 credits) in the sciences and 19 credits in business. The business requirements include courses in finance and accounting, marketing, communication and leadership, capstone, ethics, and electives. The science courses for the urban environmental analysis and management concentration are given below.
