It offers Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees with concentrations in Accounting, Finance, Supply Chain Management, Pharmaceutical Management, Marketing, Market Research, Insights, & Analytics, Entrepreneurship, Management & Business Strategy, Global Business, and Information Management & Analytics.

One Washington Park features a digital ticker tape facing Broad Street

In 2009 RBS opened a new facility in the first 11 stories of downtown Newark's One Washington Park office building that is home to the full-time and Executive MBA programs, the MQF program, and the Newark undergraduate program. 1 Washington Park is centrally located near highways and public transportation, notably Newark Broad Street Station, where there is service on New Jersey Transit Morris and Essex and Montclair-Boonton Lines (including Midtown Direct service to New York Penn Station) and Newark Light Rail service to Newark Penn Station. The Washington Park light rail station is also adjacent to the school.

Rutgers facilities in One Washington Park include classrooms, lecture halls, conference rooms, student and faculty lounges, offices, and a University Police substation. The new 3 story RBS entrance atrium features lecture halls, a trading floor, student lounge and study spaces, a rooftop garden, and the Bove Auditorium. One Park Bistro in the lobby of the building is owned by the university and operated by the university's contracted Aramark food service but is open to all tenants with a building ID. In 2011, it was announced the Rutgers–Newark campus would further expand around Washington Park, converting the former American Insurance Company Building into graduate student housing.[1][2]

In 2011 RBS broke ground on a new school building located on the New Brunswick/Livingston Campus. This new building, which opened in September, 2013, is the focal point for the New Brunswick undergraduate program. Previously, in New Brunswick, RBS shared the Janice H. Levin Building with the School of Labor and Management Relations and Beck Hall with the School of Arts and Sciences on the Livingston Campus.

RBS also has facilities in Madison, NJ, Jersey City, Princeton, NJ, Beijing, Shanghai, and Singapore.

MBA Program[edit]

Rutgers Business School offers a two year full-time MBA program and a flex time MBA program. Both programs require students to complete 60 credits of study to receive a degree. In both programs, a student must complete a set of required core business courses, a 12 credit specialization, and a team consulting project.[3] Rutgers Business School also offers an accelerated one-year Executive MBA program. The Executive MBA program has satellite programs in China and Singapore.

According to the Rutgers Business School website, the class is diverse. 35% of the class is female, and over 40 countries are represented.[4]
