Home » About Us » History



Founded in the 1920s, Rutgers University–Camden began as the South Jersey Law School and the College of South Jersey. In 1950, the two schools became the Camden campus when it merged with Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.

After decades of providing students with a comprehensive liberal arts curriculum through the Arts and Sciences, in 1981 Rutgers–Camden began to offer its first master’s degree programs, in biology, English, and business administration. In 1988, the growing demand for business offerings led to the founding of the School of Business–Camden, the first business school in southern New Jersey to earn prestigious accreditation from the AACSB International.

Today, the School of Business-Camden is a premier institution for undergraduate and graduate studies. The School of Business is highly valued as a school of choice, a business community resource and a provider of top-quality business training and executive education. Boasting various degree program options including: on-campus study in Camden, off campus study at location throughout Southern New Jersey and virtual study though degree programs offered online, Rutgers School of Business-Camden remains a distinguished and sought after choice for higher education.
