Science Meets Business: The Master of Business & Science degree (MBS) is part of a national movement of Professional Science Master’s (PSM) 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 degree involves an unprecedented number and level of partnerships at all three Rutgers campuses in Newark, New Brunswick and Camden and allows students to combine courses from all of the various schools and campuses.
Professionally Guided Curriculum: 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. The science concentrations are professionally focused and reflect industry in NJ/NY and nationwide. All of the students take a common business core including finance and accounting, marketing, communication, leadership, project management. In place of a thesis, students work in teams and develop a business plan around a technology in their field. Courses are a blend of traditional (evening), online, and executive education. We have both part-time and full-time options available.
