The Rutgers School of Business–Camden has received reaccreditation from AACSB International, the premier accrediting body for business schools in the United States and around the world.

AACSB accreditation is regarded as the highest level of certification for business schools. The peer review team that visited Rutgers University–Camden was impressed with the school’s strides in online learning, praising how the school enables online curricula by “strong faculty support, training and access to instructional designers, and  having “staff members regularly check on students to ensure their success in the program.”  The team commended school for its creation of the Rutgers University Student Executive program for high school students, and the launch of the business school’s Student Experience Center. The review team also acknowledged the business school’s impressive growth, powered by a “robust and ambitious” strategic plan and “a great deal of dynamism in the development and refinement of educational programs.”

The Rutgers–Camden business school has been reaccredited a standard five-year term. In 1995, Rutgers University–Camden became the first southern New Jersey institution to earn AACSB accreditation; the school received its first reaccreditation in 2003. Approximately 570 business schools are among those to achieve AACSB accreditation in North and South America.

The AACSB review team praises Dean Jaishankar Ganesh and the faculty for the Rutgers–Camden business school’s growth and success, saying, “The school benefits from a very dynamic and innovative decanal leader who has dramatically increased revenue and enjoys very broad support among an exceptionally collegial faculty.”

“The Rutgers School of Business–Camden delivers a cutting-edge curriculum that emphasizes creative thinking and problem-solving rooted in real-time business practices,” says Rutgers–Camden Chancellor Phoebe A. Haddon. “This reaccreditation symbolizes the overarching excellence of Rutgers University–Camden.”

The Rutgers School of Business–Camden enrolls 1,511 undergraduate and 441 graduate students.

The school offers undergraduate majors in accounting, finance management, MIS/ecommerce, strategy/international business/entrepreneurship, and marketing. Graduate programs include MBA (including online and cohort-based options), the master of accounting, and joint-degree programs in such areas as JD/MBA, and DNP/MBA.
