An accelerated MBA Program for Rutgers (BA/BS) Undergraduates

Designed specifically for undergraduate science and engineering majors such as:

  • Biology
  • Business
  • Chemistry
  • Engineering
  • Environmental Science
  • Physics

As a student in the Future Leaders MBA program of Rutgers University, you can investigate a wide range of professional opportunities in the sciences and business—many of which you may not be aware of. You’ll take part in professional development workshops and develop the skills that will give you a running start in your career.

Students in the program earn their undergraduate degree as well as an MBA from Rutgers Business School, the top-ranked business school in New Jersey. During your first three years, you will follow the typical undergraduate degree track. In the fourth year, you’ll begin taking courses toward your MBA. Once you confer your bachelor degree, you will matriculate into the part-time MBA program and complete your MBA in one-and-a-half to two years.

Programme Structure

  • Students in the Undergraduate Accelerated MBA program will follow a traditional undergraduate degree track their first three years, and then are permitted to take four MBA core courses (12 credits) in their fourth year to satisfy their undergraduate credit requirements and obtain a jump start on their MBA. In addition to the four MBA core classes, it is required that students take calculus and statistics to meet the pre-requisite requirements for the MBA degree.
