This N.J. school’s global business MBA was just ranked No. 1 in the nation

The Great Business Schools college guide has released its rankings of the nation’s best international business MBA programs, and a New Jersey school sits at the very top.

Rutgers University came in at No. 1 on the list of 25 Best MBA in International Business Programs for 2021, Great Business Schools said Thursday in a news release. The school beat out the University of Southern California and Northeastern University for the top spot.

“Earning an MBA in international business will open the door for a wide variety of opportunities,” Great Business Schools said in a statement. “Government agencies and large nonprofits require individuals who are incredibly versatile and have the skills that are needed to work within expansive global markets. Working on an international level requires advanced abilities that allow the professional to utilize global resources in an attempt to broker lucrative business deals.

“With an MBA in international business, graduates will learn about trade negotiations, tariffs, customs, shipping regulations and many other types of transactions and dealings that are not part of domestic business practices.”

The Rutgers Business School, in Newark and New Brunswick, offers full- and part-time MBA programs, with multiple concentrations. The global business concentration was the one honored by Great Business Schools.

No other New Jersey schools made Great Business Schools’ four international MBA lists.
