The master of business and science degree (M.B.S.) is part of a national movement of professional science master’s programs that brings together master’s level study in science or engineering with courses in business and policy. Rutgers is the only university in New Jersey that offers a statewide master of business and science degree.

The degree is a combination of the M.S. and the M.B.A. degree. Rutgers–Camden offers three concentrations: actuarial sciences, applied computing, and industrial mathematics. 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.
