What our Alumni have to say...

Below are some highlights from our alumni, detailing how they value their education with Rutgers, in Singapore and beyond…

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.  There were a lot of options that I had considered.  Some are very cost competitive and that could be a major selling point.  However, I decided with Rutgers for several factors that met my personal criteria.  First and the most important factor, the program is being ran by the University itself, instead of through a “middleman”.  With this regard, the students always have a direct contact with the University and all the Professors, even after graduation.  The classroom-based lessons allow me to have constructive discussions between my fellow classmates, across different industries, and with the Professors. The lessons provided a holistic understanding of the business environment and that is truly priceless. The Rutgers EMBA program is indeed demanding in terms of time and commitment but it’s all worth the effort. I was like a dry sponge absorbing every bit of knowledge that I can get, without the slightest regret.  I am so glad to be a Rutgers Alumnus…… and most importantly, being part of the BIG FAMILY. Like I told Prof Langdana before……. “you are stuck with me and can’t shake me off from now on…”

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.

What attracted me the most was RBS offers the same degree as I would have taken it in New Jersey, USA with all professors flying in from mostly US. The Global Mindset, Corporate Strategy, Innovative Leadership and Organizational Behaviors courses are top notch. What changed me the most was Macroeconomics, Financial Statement Analysis and International Finance Strategy. The professors gave me the confidence in applying what I learned right away in the real financial world. I was able to practice and capitalize them in my professional work and life, including my own portfolio investment which I ended up making a whopping of 43% ROI during Covid-19 pandemic. So, if you are looking for a reputable EMBA program with great American experience and good ROI, then look no further! Join us to Power up with the Powerhouse!

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.”
