An Introduction to Rutgers Business School
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, was founded over 242 years ago in 1766 and is distinguished as one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the United States. Rutgers has been a pioneer in an array of academic and professional fields.
The Rutgers Business School (RBS) was founded in 1929 as the Seth Boyden School of Business. As an undergraduate college in New Jersey's largest city, Seth Boyden primarily served first generation college students. However, the focus started to gradually change in the early 1950s when MBA and MBA in Professional Accounting programs were added (the latter was the first of its kind in the United States). For almost three decades beginning in the mid-1960s, RBS focused exclusively on graduate education. A PhD in Management was created in 1978 and an Executive MBA program was established in 1980.
Rutgers Business School has been offering first-rate, graduate business instruction in China on a continuous basis since 1994, longer than any other American business school.
Today the Executive MBA program is offered in Singapore, Beijing, and Shanghai. (www.RutgersInAsia.com)
Executive MBA Program
The Rutgers Executive MBA curriculum examines the "hows", "whys" and "what ifs" of a business from formation to transformation. Throughout this examination, students gain or refine the skills essential to successful decision making.
The 14-month Program is comprised of 18 courses; 14 core courses and 4 electives that are all taught in English. Each course consists of 38-hours of classroom time and the content mirrors what is taught in the United States.
The program begins with an intensive nine days where the participants and the faculty work together. In addition to the class work, this week is designed to orient the participants to the program and ease the apprehension that is naturally felt for many who have not been students for 10, 15, and maybe even 25 years. After the initial nine days, students feel confident that they can do what is needed to succeed.
After the initial nine day session, courses consist of two consecutive weekends and two weekday evenings each month. The schedule was specifically designed to minimize time away from the workplace and maximize information retention and back at work applicability.
The program concludes with a capstone full-time week, when the students focus on strategy and policy issues, using the skills they have learned over the course of the year.
The EMBA program utilizes a "building-block" approach where each course builds upon the previous while keeping to an absolute minimum the redundancy in the delivery of information.
Students are organized into teams that work together throughout the entire Program. Team members study and work on projects together, tutor one another, and complement one another's strengths and weaknesses. This approach also gives individuals the chance to hone their team building and leadership skills which can be applied directly back to their work environment.
