History of Rutgers Business School

Rutgers University was originally chartered as Queen's College on November 10, 1766. It is the eighth-oldest college in the United States and one of the nine colonial colleges chartered before the American Revolution. The college was renamed Rutgers College in 1825 in honor of Colonel Henry Rutgers (1745–1830), a New York City landowner, philanthropist and former military officer. The University has since evolved to become one of the leading research universities in the US.

Founded in 1929, Rutgers Business School has a rich history in the state of New Jersey -- a history deeply embedded in the larger story of Rutgers University-Newark and Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Rutgers University. Rutgers has been revolutionary for 250 years. That's not changing.

Why A Rutgers EMBA?

If you’re looking for a program that is relevant, relational, rigorous and provides immediate return on investment, you’ve come to the right place.

Vinh-Long Nguyen

Why did you decide that an Executive MBA was relevant at this stage of your career?

More and more what I was doing in Unilever Asia became closer to business rather than technical, hence I felt I needed more business overall knowledge on top of my technical knowledge to help me with better decisions or contributions in my work.

How did you apply what you learned to your job?

It was more for a better and well-rounded understanding of the business discussions/decisions than application. However, in various occasions, especially when reviewing the plans for new product innovations, I was able to apply a few things I learnt such as decision making techniques, financial calculations, etc. Also, more and more we try to learn how to think like start-ups to be faster and more flexible in the market, then a good mix of corporate and business strategy knowledge is a great help.

“The professors at Rutgers are great. Through their enthusiasm to impart their lifetime of research and teachings, the students benefitted greatly and the lessons are always over too soon and packed with so much useful information. The application is almost immediate. The capstone Business Strategy class taught by Prof Karafin helped me the next week when I had to attend a Leadership Summit in the US and had to present a business strategy to the CEO and the Operating Committee.”
