MS in Biomedical Sciences / MBA

This program is directed toward individuals with a science background. It trains students in both management and biomedical principles.

Current entry-level managers may have limited experience in the biological sciences or may have MPH or medical degrees. Positions that would find such a dual degree of benefit include:

  • Department or Group Manager at biotechnical/pharmaceutical company
  • Director of Operations, Marketing Manager, Product Manager, Field Manager or Sales Representative at biotechnical/pharmaceutical company
  • Director of Materials Management at biotechnical/pharmaceutical company or at an Integrated Healthcare Network
  • Manager in a Public Policy Department at a state or federal government agency

Applicants can apply to the dual degree program through either institution. Each school determines the applicability of the application to its program and then forwards the application to the other institution. Both programs must agree for the applicant to be accepted into the dual degree program, but either institution may accept the student into its own program if dual acceptance is declined. A single application fee to either program is acceptable.

Admission into the dual MS/MBA program requires a score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE) that falls among the top third of the grades and a superior undergraduate grade point average (GPA). Management experience is encouraged. Strong performance in one area can offset weak performance in another. The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) requires that applicants have a basic background in biology and chemistry.

Students in the dual degree program will spend the majority of the first year in the MBA component of the program and pay full-time tuition to Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs — Newark and New Brunswick. During the second year, students complete the M.S. portion of their program and tuition is collected by GSBS. Student fees in the first year will be paid to Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs — Newark and New Brunswick. Student fees during the second year will be paid to GSBS except that students who plan to use career services at Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs — Newark and New Brunswick will pay the career services fee to Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs — Newark and New Brunswick.
