Rutgers MBA program is on the rise in the rankings

Monday, March 31, 2014

Mitchell Ezra thinks he made a good move.

The 31-year-old Piscataway resident is set to graduate with an MBA in May from Rutgers Business School. And he's already got a job lined up with Bristol-Myers Squibb. The future holds promise.

It wasn't as sunny in Ezra's world a couple of years ago, though. Ezra was a research biologist at a medium-sized company in the Franklin section of Somerset that was bought by a larger company. The office he was working in was moving to Boston.

It left Ezra with a choice: Pick up and move to the new location, or go back to his alma mater to pursue an MBA. He chose the latter.

"It's been excellent right from the beginning,'' Ezra said.

Rutgers' full-time MBA program is ranked 60th overall in the 2015 U.S. News & World Report rankings of nearly 700 programs worldwide.

Its 95 percent placement rate puts it eighth overall in the nation for getting graduates into jobs.

The school's part-time program is not too shabby, either, according to U.S. News. Enrolling a student body of 1,000 students at Rutgers' New Brunswick and Newark campuses, the program is ranked 39th overall, moving up 30 spots from last year's ranking.

Sharon Lydon, executive director of the Rutgers MBA program, said the new rankings — not yet released in print — are a reflection of the school's emphasis on student development and its focus on meeting the needs of employers.

"We're very employer-centric, trying to focus on employers' needs," Lydon said. "When we meet with recruiters, we find out what they're looking for, and we're very good at knowing our students."
