Professional Science Master's Program
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.
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 in concentrations in areas such life science, engineering management, mathematics, information technology and sustainability. All of the concentrations are united under a common Rutgers brand and framework and share some common defining elements including a common set of business+ courses, hands-on learning, team based learning in a diverse setting, development of personal and professional skills, career development opportunities, internship opportunities, and a modular format allowing for easy transfer of credits between schools and customization of interdisciplinary programs by students.Specialized professional science/technology courses have been created for this program.
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.
