Message from the Dean

I would like to express a warm welcome to every student who is beginning or continuing a graduate program at Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs-Newark and New Brunswick.

Rutgers Business School-Newark and New Brunswick (RBS) stands on the principles of academic excellence, cutting-edge research, and public service that have defined Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, for more than 250 years. Rutgers is the nation's eighth-oldest institution of higher learning--one of only nine colonial colleges including Harvard, William & Mary, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Penn, Brown, and Dartmouth, established before the American Revolution--with a centuries-old tradition of rising to the challenges of each new generation.

RBS is one of the largest public business schools in the United States with over 10,000 graduate and undergraduate students in RBS locations in Newark and New Brunswick, and a highly diverse student population. The quality and professionalism of our students are reflected in the RBS brand--RESILIENT, RESOURCEFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and REINVENTING--which is attracting more and more top companies to recruit students from our graduate programs.

Our splendid buildings at 100 Rockafeller Road on the Livingston campus in Piscataway --"100 Rock"--  and at 1 Washington Park -- "1 WP" -- in Newark are major symbols of the recent growth and increasing stature of our comprehensive, two-campus, Rutgers Business School.  

RBS is one of the preeminent public business schools on the East Coast. We are:

  • #1 Public Business School in the Northeast U.S. (Financial Times, 2018)
  • #1 Public M.B.A. in the New York Tristate (NY/NJ/CT) (U.S. News, 2020)
  • #1 Public MBA for Entrepreneurship on the East Coast (Poets & Quants, 2021)
  • #2 Supply Chain Management Undergraduate Program in North America (Gartner)
  • #2 Executive MBA program in Economics, globally (Financial Times 2019)
  • #10 Executive MBA for the Quality of the Faculty in the World (The Economist, 2020)

Our program's strong rankings have a halo effect on our specialty master's programs, enhancing their reputations and making graduates of the programs attractive to recruiters. Our location in the New York metropolitan area enables us to attract highly qualified faculty, constantly innovate our curriculum, and deliver attractive employment opportunities to our students through our exceptional connections with local, regional, and multinational companies. RBS interacts with more than 1,000 employers across industries who provide mentors, internships, and employment for our students; speakers for our classes and clubs; and part-time lecturers and students in our executive education programs. Business executives of these companies serve on more than 20 boards that advise us on programs, research, and organizations supporting our comprehensive and relevant curriculum. With such strong corporate recruiting partnerships with regional and global companies and a dedicated career management team, RBS is committed to our students' success.

I am happy you have joined the RBS family and wish you much success as you pursue your professional goals. Your career starts at RBS!
