Welcome From the Executive Director

Welcome to the Professional Science Master’s (PSM) Program at Rutgers University!  Our Master’s of Business and Science (MBS) degree offers you outstanding opportunities to prepare for science-based careers in a wide range of industries. We have developed a unique community within a large public research institution that is equally committed to both academic rigor and professional relevance.  Our programs offer curricula personalized to your career goals, hands-on learning opportunities, convenient evening schedules for required courses, and multiple course formats (in-person, on-line, and hybrid). You also have the opportunity to study with outstanding faculty, which include award-winning academics and accomplished business leaders.

The PSM program is unique among its competitors in that it offers a flexible, integrated, and personalized approach to science and business education. Students in the MBS degree pursue specially developed courses in Life Sciences, Computer and Information Sciences, and Engineering, that focus on building both the deeper learning and hands-on science and technical knowledge needed to succeed in business today. The business and communication courses that students take in the program are also designed to help you better integrate science and business acumen and apply those skills effectively in the job market. Workshops, lectures, and networking events featuring business leaders - what we like to call “The MBS Experience” - help students to further integrate their business and science education and gives students an edge in successfully transitioning into a challenging job after graduation. To date, over 96% of MBS graduates who were available to work after graduation found a job within six months.

Students pursuing the MBS degree are also part of the vibrant Rutgers community. The most diverse public research university in the U.S., Rutgers is located across several major campuses in New Jersey (New Brunswick, Camden, Newark) and is home to over 67,000 students, including more than 19,000 graduate students. MBS students have access to the full range of courses, facilities and supports offered at the university, which include academic libraries, Career Services, campus facilities, athletic programs, and other cultural, social, and recreational opportunities. The nearby cities also offer an array of activities and resources that can enrich your on-campus experience.

We are delighted that you have found the PSM program and we invite you to explore the MBS degree and certificate options by clicking through the links on our website. The faculty and staff of the PSM program welcome your interest in the MBS degree and we look forward to meeting you at an upcoming Open House or information webinar.
