The Master of Business & Science degree (MBS) is part of a national movement of Professional Science Master’s programs that brings together master’s level study in science or engineering with “plus” courses in business and policy. Rutgers is the only university in New Jersey that offers a statewide Master of Business and Science degree. This new master’s degree program involves an unprecedented number and level of partnerships at all three Rutgers campuses in Newark, New Brunswick and Camden and allows student to combine courses from all of the various schools and campuses.
The degree is a combination of an MS and MBA degree with 43 credits: 24 credits in the sciences and/or engineering and 19 credits in business. The science courses are taken within a specific concentration in areas such as the life sciences, engineering, mathematics, information technologies, and sustainability. All of the students take a common business core including finance and accounting, marketing, communication, leadership, project management, and business case development.
Why an MBS?
The MBS degree is for you if you are
- interested in further developing your technical skills with an emphasis on how science/technology is practiced today,
- interested in developing a core set of business skills and the ability to apply those business skills in a science/technology setting,
- you have or are pursuing a science/engineering undergraduate major (or have the equivalent courses) and are interested in developing leadership, business, technical and entrepreneurship skills,
- you are seeking an alternative to a traditional science masters or MBA.
