Hubert Brown

Why did you decide to pursue the PMAc degree?
I’ve been in the accounting arena for over 20 years, from banking to healthcare to logistics. Now I work in the pharmaceutical industry. I am at a crossroads and want to acquire the knowledge to take me to the next level. As for the PMAc, I thought, why not go for a challenge?

What’s it like going to school and working full time?
It’s a challenge, but challenge has always been part of my life. To accomplish work and school, I had to get organized. I couldn’t do it on my own. I now come in earlier and leave at 5 or 5:30 to go home to study. The dynamics of home life have also changed. I am married and have a 14-year-old son. Now, basically, my son and I are doing our homework at the same time. It’s fun.

Why did you choose Rutgers School of Business – Camden?
It was a no brainer. It is my alma mater, where I got my first degree. What was interesting about the program is that it was designed for professionals, and going to class on the weekends makes it more convenient. The other remarkable thing is the student cohorts, which draw on a knowledge base of all the students. By sharing, we create a pool of knowledge. The quality of professors and the instruction are excellent. There’s a marketable value in getting a Rutgers degree. The school is known not just locally, but internationally, too.

Are you applying what you’re learning in your work life?
The courses I’ve taken so far have taken my knowledge base to a new level. The Financial Management course explored the topic much more deeply than I had done in my undergraduate years. At this level, I am applying what I learned daily to my professional life and even advising friends and family.

Tell us about your professors.
Their delivery and material and style are different. Each teaches us to become critical thinkers and also are exceptional in that they think outside of the box. My view of the world has changed, and I’m still in school.

What advice do you have for future PMAc students?
Come prepared to work. It’s not an undergraduate program. You will not know everything, so work with your team, get involved. I initiated a study group for midterms and finals, and it worked. Participate in class discussion. Even if you think it’s a stupid question, it helps your confidence level in your professional life to ask questions.

Three words to describe the experience?
Challenging. Stimulating. Rewarding.

Do you anticipate keeping up with the Rutger School of Business alumni network?
It’s very important to keep in touch, for networking purposes primarily. You never know what life holds, and you may need to tap into your alumni network.

BLDP Application

The Spring 2023 Application is now open! 

Priority will be given to applications received by November 18. Applications are accepted until all seats are filled. Space is limited, so apply early!

The seminar application process is our gateway for entry into the program. Upon acceptance into BLDP, students will be emailed their acceptance letter plus a special permission number allowing registration for the BLDP seminar.


Seminar applications are solicited each semester and require the following:

  1. Completed application form (at the bottom of this page),
  2. For students with GPA 3.0 – 3.49, two (2) letters of recommendation (one academic; one other)

Rutgers-Camden students are invited to apply to apply for enrollment in the BLDP seminar. All applicants are expected to meet both of the following selection criteria:  (1) have sophomore standing or above and (2) have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above. First-semester transfer students will be evaluated based on their GPA earned at Rutgers. Students who fail to meet these admission criteria may still be allowed to apply for (and possibly enroll in) the BLDP seminar, but they will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

The director balances evaluations to make final decisions on people accepted for the seminar (up to a maximum of 15-20 each semester).

Students who are admitted to the BDLP are required to adopt the BLDP Code of Conduct. A signed contract is required from each student.

Students may count activities toward “leadership units” that were initiated prior to taking a seminar, as long as those activities occured primarily during their enrollment in their academic program.

Application for Admission to BLDP Seminar

Applications for the BLDP Seminar will be ongoing until class is filled.
