The Rutgers Business School EMBA program meets all day on alternate Fridays and Saturdays on Rutgers University’s Newark campus. Each term begins with an intensive week of classes in residence. Each participant becomes part of a study group that works as a team on class projects and homework assignments. A short course, Mathematics for Managers, is offered during the last two weeks of August for incoming students who want a refresher course in college algebra. In addition, an optional Computers for Managers course is conducted in late August for incoming students who would like a quick hands-on overview of the most essential business software applications. Participants have an opportunity to interact with international business leaders during a two-week summer program in China.
The program, comprised of 57 credits, can be completed in 20 months, with courses conducted from early September to May. Students can obtain a formal specialization in a certain area by selecting all three of their elective courses in a particular area during the final semester. For a public university program, this is pretty expensive, especially for non-residents.
