"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."
