Degree: Engineering Management
Graduation Year: 2017

Rutgers University has an amazing MBS (Master of Business & Science) program. My concentration is Engineering Management and I am specializing in Pharmaceutical Engineering. The courses I took towards my degree were taught by pioneers in their respective fields. Rutgers is a Research power-house, and one of the few universities working in tandem with industry for Continuous manufacturing in Pharmaceuticals. The courses are not only rich in content, they also provide knowledge of current practices in the industry and prepares the students for the challenges they are going to face when they join the workforce. It also has a world-class infrastructure to support your education, sports or extra-curricular needs. The only down point is the lack of funding/scholarships for international graduate students. Rutgers is a host to one of the largest career fairs in the New Jersey state and I have noticed that a degree from Rutgers is a plus point while looking for opportunities in the Tri-State area.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I absolutely LOVED my experience at Rutgers University. I was in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences where I achieved my degree in biomedical science. The professors were very knowledgeable and highly distinguished faculty. Many of the professors teach at the medical and dental school on campus. I was challenged in my courses, but with hard work and great time management I was able to achieve my goal and get my masters degree. The faculty was very helpful and were always available to help. The advisors wanted what was best for the students and guided us if we were feeling overwhelmed. This is a wonderful program that acts as a stepping stone for a future in professional school.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

The University prepared me for the workforce. Being based in NJ allows the students to take advantage of several paid internships through the local pharmaceutical companies. The University also offers the "Bridging the Gap" paid internship every summer --- these experiences allowed me to gain significant hands-on quantitative/qualitative research skills which employers like. I had a job offer prior to graduation and I've been working since.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I highly recommend this program. If your goal is to use this program as a stepping stone for Med school this program will prepare you. The teachers and administration are helpful and very receptive to student feedback. The curriculum is rigors but there allows for a good work life balance.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The Rutgers' School of Social Work is a great school. The school ranks amongst the highest school of social work and has lots of variety of programs and flexibility (for MSW student). You could choose 1) an online/ hybrid/ or on-campus programs; 2) clinical or management and policy concentration 3) three certificate program (Aging and Health, Addiction Counselor Training, and violence against women) 4) Several areas of emphasis of practice . The school of social work also has strong faculty members who have decades of experience of practice and research, both domestically and internationally. Rutgers prides itself as one of the most diverse campus in the US. In addition, Rutgers University is among the 62 members of the AAU (Association of American Universities), the leading research universities in North America.
