Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey-Camden, or “Rutgers-Camden,” boasts a “strong brand name through research literature,” and “caters to part-time returning students” predominantly in South Jersey, Philadelphia and other parts of the Delaware Valley. In addition to enjoying a “good reputation,” students at this business school repeatedly cite Rutgers-Camden’s “location, location, location,” owing to the school’s “close proximity” to nearby cities like Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, D.C., not to mention its “proximity to home” for many working, part-time students. “This school has a good mix of students,” one MBA student informs us. “Some are older and in professional careers— physicians, CPAs, lawyers, and engineers. Some are analysts looking to move into management, and some students are in the MBA/JD program going to school full-time.” Among those students enrolled in the joint MBA/JD program, the general consensus is that Rutgers-Camden is “a respected institution in the legal community.”

For students enrolled in the MBA program alone, they can expect to complete their twelve foundational and forty-two required credits within two to four years, while dual-degree students in the MBA/JD and MBA/MD joint programs can expect to complete their degree in three years. Degree programs and concentrations in the following are offered: finance, international business and operations, management, marketing, and entrepreneurs. Study-abroad programs in France, Brazil, and South Africa are also offered. The school also offers two new Masters programs: the Professional Master of Business Administration (PMBA), an accelerated twenty-one-month lock-step, cohort-based program for working professionals; and the Professional Master of Accountancy (PMAc) program, an accelerated sixteen-month lock-step, cohort-based program for participants with a broad background in accounting and business who want to develop their careers in other areas. The school also offers a fully online MBA degree—the Rutgers Online MBA.

The thirty-four faculty members at Rutgers-Camden are described as “knowledgeable,” “flexible,” and “responsive” to students’ needs. Additionally, the professors “bring interesting life and work experiences to the classroom.” One procurement specialist informs us that, “I attended Rutgers for my undergrad degree in Business Management,” and “the professors are what brought me back” for the MBA program. As one student notes, “they are very good at using different teaching methods—group projects, in-class discussions, and resources beyond the text book.” Considering that many students arrive at Rutgers-Camden with a solid resume in hand, it’s particularly beneficial that, according to one accounting major, the professors “value your work experience.” However, some students have informed us when it comes to the overall quality of faculty, it can be “hit or miss.” While on the one hand, “some are engaging and have worked in the private sector before teaching, others are bookworms with no teaching ability or private sector experience.” But this same student concedes, “I guess in a way it is good to have both types.” According to one recent MBA graduate, “The caliber of this School’s professors and administration help to make Rutgers-Camden an absolutely amazing value considering its relatively low tuition.”
