The growing international competition in science innovation has created a demand for professionals who possess a unique skill set -- a balance of scientific training and business savvy. Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey is helping professionals respond to this challenge with a new degree: the Master of Business and Science (MBS). The MBS degree is part of a national movement of Professional Science Master’s programs that brings together master’s level study in science, engineering, and math with “plus” courses in business and policy. The MBS is a STEM degree.
The Master of Business & Science degree at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey is a hybrid degree combining courses from an MS and MBA. Students choose an applied science concentration and that is paired with a business curriculum. The business curriculum consists of core courses in finance and accounting, marketing, communication and leadership, management of science and technology electives, ethics and a capstone course covering entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship.
The degree can be done part-time for working professionals or full-time. All required courses are in the evenings, weekends or online. Graduate Certificates in cutting-edge fields are also available.
We accept applications for all semesters. Please see more information on our admissions page.
