Flex MBA Program

Ranked #9 in Mid-Atlantic region by Bloomberg Businessweek

Rutgers Business School’s part-time MBA program has been reengineered to become the Flex MBA Program. The Flex MBA program allows students to customize their MBA experience. A Flex MBA student may take a part-time load or a full-time load.  The Flex MBA is also an excellent option for professionals who wish to further their career but want to continue working while earning their MBA degree. Bloomberg Businessweek recently ranked Rutgers #9 in the Mid-Atlantic region for its part-time MBA program, which constitutes the Flex MBA [read story].

This 60-credit MBA program is offered completely in Newark and New Brunswick with satellite locations in Jersey City and Madison. These convenient locations in state-of-the-art facilities make obtaining a Rutgers MBA realistic for working professionals.

The only courses not open to Flex MBA students are the Traditional Full-time MBA cohort core courses. Otherwise it is the same curriculum as the Traditional Full-Time MBA program, unlike some part-time MBA programs. Rutgers Flex MBA has also introduced the added flexibility of taking classes online for select courses.

The Rutgers Flex MBA Experience

The Flex MBA is also an excellent option for international students and for those students who want to pursue a customized or extended concentration. Consultants and entrepreneurs will find the extraordinary flexibility particularly appealing.

Students can begin the Flex MBA at any time: in the fall semester, in the spring semester, or in the summer session. They may also apply to begin the Flex MBA program as a non-matriculated student if they have not yet taken the GMAT/GRE. Many students in the Flex MBA program have considerable work experience in business, but this is not required. Students already pursuing a bachelor’s degree and admitted to the Future Leaders Program at Rutgers can begin the Flex MBA while completing their bachelor’s.

Flex MBA students must complete a minimum of 30 credits and be free of any contractual employment obligations, among other requirements, before registering with the MBA Office of Career Management.

What Flex MBA students say

“Thanks to Rutgers, I've had the pleasure of being able to attend two very exclusive social and urban entrepreneurship events, hosted by CUEED, that were truly enlightening. Being exposed to great minds that are making a difference in the surrounding community—like professors Jeff Robinson, Jerome Williams, and dt ogilvie—has been absolutely inspiring.”

For me the best part of the MBA experience was how flexible and accommodating Rutgers was.  I always knew I wanted to head into the finance track, however in my first summer, I realized that I wanted to focus on Commercial Real Estate Finance.  As Rutgers didn't have any courses on this, I started talking to some classmates, and once there was enough interest, Rutgers listened and soon offered special topics courses specifically for Real Estate from individuals working in the industry. The beauty of the Rutgers MBA is not only are you getting a solid experience, but you're getting the exact experience you need at the pace you want!

"Rutgers has expanded my horizons through a heightened learning experience (enlightenment). In addition to being exposed to numerous business cases, their knowledgeable, experienced and well networked faculty introduced a business lingo to me that I had not yet been exposed to in Corporate America. Once I knew how to speak that language, my contributions to my business environment gained depth. I thrived in Rutgers' diverse, competitive academic setting and I am continuously implementing that knowledge in my Women Owned hair care upstart, Tea and Honey Blends LLC."
