The Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-Newark and New Brunswick (RBS-NNB) and
the master of human resource management (M.H.R.M) program offer a five-year
degree program of 150 credits, which leads to B.S. and M.H.R.M.
degrees. To complete both degrees within five years, students should
indicate their interest in this program when they apply to the RBS-NNB
programs at the end of their third semester. As soon as possible, students
should select the organization management major as their first choice
The sooner students indicate that they wish to
pursue the five-year program, the sooner they can receive advice on how
to plan their schedules. Without careful planning, students may have
difficulty completing the program in five years. Individuals may apply
for the B.S./M.H.R.M. program during their junior or senior year, but
they may not be able to finish the program in five years.
program is divided into six parts: undergraduate liberal arts college
area distribution requirements, RBS-NNB eligibility courses, RBS-NNB
core courses, RBS-NNB electives, HRM graduate core courses, and HRM
electives. To graduate with a B.S./M.H.R.M. degree, students will have
completed 120 credits at the undergraduate level (including courses
that serve as equivalent to graduate-level foundation courses) and 30
credits in courses in which they are enrolled for graduate credit.
Altogether, they will have acquired 150 credits.
