BS/MBA 5-Year Program

During the junior year, students may apply to the Rutgers Business School for admission to the BS/MBA Program. Admission requires a 3.3* cumulative GPA by the end of the junior year and score in the top quartile on the GMAT or GRE exam.  Interested/eligible students should take the GMAT or GRE during the fall semester of your junior year. Then, apply to the program in the spring semester of your junior year.  Note: The BS/MBA Program is not open to transfer students with 30 or more transfer credits.

If accepted into the program, during your senior year of the engineering program, you will take up to 4 MBA courses towards your MBA degree. These courses may count as technical electives or as general electives in the engineering curriculum (see Dean Bernath for specifics). If these electives will have already been fulfilled by other courses, any MBA courses that you complete while enrolled in the BS program will not count toward BS requirements but they will of course make progress toward the MBA. The Rutgers Business School will advise you on course selection for MBA courses, and issue any necessary special permission #'s.

The 4th year remains your senior year in which you must complete all requirements for the BS in Engineering. During your fifth year, you will complete your graduate studies and receive your MBA degree.

  • School of Engineering Students with lower GPA's (3.100-3.299) may still qualify for admission if other parts of the application package are strong (GMAT/GRE, essay, interview). For more information and an application go to Future Leaders MBA Program.
