Frequently Asked Questions about Rutgers EMBA

Sort by:

All our 18 courses are in-person, Rutgers EMBA Program is in-person. The students have found that they learn almost as much from each other as from the professors. Being in-person during the four full days over the weekends and two weeknights for each course, and given the four breaks per day in Emba, it is no wonder that virtually all the job placement and job transitioning happens thanks to class connections and the constant networking. In fact, our EMBAs were the first ones to want to come back in-person following Covid! More information at our in-person Open Houses, where you get to interact with the current students.

Short answer: Yes! We have been repeatedly ranked #1 in “Quality of Life” by Ivy Exec (New York) for all EMBA programs in the Northeast. The additional work (outside class) would be 7-10 hours per week. Our advice is to just stay with your notes daily. The big difference between Rutgers EMBA (The Powerhouse) and other EMBA programs is that our mantra is “what we cover in class today will be used by you at work next week.” This self-imposed charter has, in fact, driven our strategy and has garnered continuous global rankings for The Powerhouse since 2005. If you have to travel, we will work with you. If you are swamped at work, we will work with you.

At the last open house for the New Jersey EMBA Program – it happened to be an online event on a Saturday – one of the current students was scheduled to speak to the attendees for a few minutes. He was doing so from his SUV, bringing his kids home from swimming. Later in the conversation, he had to head to Shoprite! By the time the session ended, one of the attendees had the same question as above, and he (now finally home) addressed it with: “Look, I am an executive in a major pharmaceutical company with a demanding job and I have four kids—the youngest was born just literally days before I started Rutgers EMBA. This is not an exceptional day for me—this is a TYPICAL day for me. If I can do it, anyone can!”

Prof. Langdana (EMBA Director): “There will never be a totally optimum time. Many years ago, at a Rutgers EMBA open house, one of the current students answered this question perfectly. She responded to the query from one of the open house attendees with: ‘Doing an EMBA program is like getting married or having a baby. There is no perfect time. You know you have to do it, so you do it. A finely tuned, world-class and practical EMBA program that is globally ranked like Rutgers EMBA will give you real confidence and powerful finance/strategy/marketing/supply chain and Executive Skills to make it to the C-suite where we all want to be!’

For the record, you will be awarded the MBA degree when you graduate. On your resume you will state that you have an MBA from the Rutgers Executive MBA Program. All employers will immediately know what that means!

And regarding your question: “Do I really need this?” Yes, if you are trying to make a major job transition—say, from doing surgery to running a hospital, or from science and technology to senior leadership where Finance, Strategy, Accounting, New Technology such as AI and Big Data, Leadership, etc., are necessary. Or you simply want to launch your dream start-up; you are fed up with working for a big company….or vice versa? Then The Powerhouse is for you. In fact, our faculty is dedicated to guide you through your career transition!

If you are happy where you are at work and are wearing “many hats”— engineering, sales, HR, strategy, legal, IT, consulting, supply chain, to name a few—and are basically “making it up” as you go along, then you need Rutgers EMBA to give you the real high-powered practical tools to move up faster and better at work.

WHY RUTGERS EMBA?

WHY AN EMBA, AND NOT AN MBA?

An Executive MBA, or EMBA, is fundamentally different from a traditional MBA program. EMBA programs are designed for experienced industry personnel and offer a higher and more intensive level of learning with real-life relevance and application, focused on strategic thinking and critical problem-solving through exchanges of ideas and experiences. 

If you’re looking for an education that goes beyond the academic to acknowledge and crystallize your years of experience into future-proof marketability, then the EMBA is for you.
