To apply to Rutgers Business School, a candidate must complete the online application and submit the application fee, official transcripts from previous undergraduate and graduate schools, two letters of reference, an updated resume, and an essay on one of several predetermined topics. Several programs also require recent, official results from the Graduate Management Admissions Test or the Graduate Records Examinations test.
Candidates access the official online application from the main admissions page of the Rutgers Business School website. The first page of the application lists deadlines for submission of materials for various programs. A general MBA does not require a specific undergraduate major, but Master of Accountancy programs usually require an undergraduate degree in accounting, and the Master of Quantitative Finance and Master of Financial Analysis programs prefer candidates with bachelor's degrees in economics, finance or math. The letters of reference should be from employers. If a candidate is self-employed, they should be from clients or others with whom the candidate does business. In addition to the selected essay, candidates may write an optional second essay detailing any other pertinent information about their academics or employment.
International applicants whose primary language is not English must submit the results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language, International English Language Testing System or Pearson Test of English Academic. Foreign applicants with international degrees must have them evaluated by a NACES-accredited credentialing agency for GPA, individual courses and bachelor's degree verification. If the candidate already received an advanced degree in the United States, this requirement is waived.
