Business and Science (M.B.S.)
Welcome to the Rutgers-Camden Business and Science (M.B.S.) program, where advanced science-based knowledge meets comprehensive business skills. This program addresses the growing need for candidates who can integrate scientific expertise with business acumen. With a rich history of collaboration and innovation, the M.B.S. program at Rutgers-Camden is at the forefront of bridging the gap between STEM disciplines and corporate positions.
TAKE THE NEXT STEP
In 2008, a significant gap was identified among STEM-based employers: the lack of candidates proficient in applying advanced science-based knowledge alongside comprehensive business skills. Recognizing this need, faculty members across Rutgers University, including Deborah Silver, Ph.D., and David Finegold, Ph.D., initiated departmental efforts to create a program that would combine multidisciplinary scientific studies with advanced business education. Their collaboration culminated in the establishment of the Master of Business and Science (M.B.S.) degree, part of the broader national movement of professional science master’s programs.
The M.B.S. degree is awarded through the graduate schools on all three campuses: The School of Graduate Studies (New Brunswick), Rutgers Graduate School–Newark, and Rutgers Graduate School–Camden. At Rutgers-Camden, offers concentrations in:
The goal of the Actuarial and Statistical Analysis concentration is to educate students about the field of actuarial and statistical analysis—and the financial impact of risk and uncertainty.
Tailored towards students interested in becoming a computer programmer or learning about programming but who do not have a background in computing—suitable for professionals who have a scientific background and want to improve their computational skills.
This concentration emphasizes mathematical modeling, computational techniques, and statistical reasoning to equip students with the skills to successfully develop mathematical methods for application in engineering, science, and industry.
All of the concentrations share 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, and internship opportunities.
