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.

Being an engineer throughout my career has given me minimum exposure on how an organization is being managed, especially in business, financial and other critical areas if you are aiming to climb the corporate ladder.  Desiring to expand my portfolio and wanting to break away from being a “traditional” engineer, I decided to explore EMBA programs.

Senior Quality Engineer
Never stop learning, especially for someone liked me who has spent 20 years career in supply chain and R&D management with increasing responsibility. Given my busy schedule in work, family and travelling, I have been wanting to get an MBA degree from a reputable business school since 2016; but I just could not find anything that suited me, mainly due to unjustifiable high tuition fee or inconvenient location.  In 2018, my job relocated me to Singapore from USA and I was glad that I run into Rutgers EMBA program at an MBA fair. I ended up joining the Class of 2020. What a great journey! After spending many long weekends and weeknights, I met many awesome classmates and professors from 10 different countries, spanning from Asia to North America and Europe.

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.
