Rutgers School of Business – Camden

NEW Online MS in Finance-Wealth Management (MSF) Program Launches

Rutgers School of Business–Camden will launch a 30-credit New Online MS in Finance-Wealth Management Program this fall. The wealth management industry is undergoing a significant transformation due to an aging workforce, fintech disruptions, and shifting demographics. The financial stewards of tomorrow will require a tailored set of skills to embrace the opportunities these disruptive forces are creating.

Grounded in investments, financial technology, leadership, and investor psychology, the Rutgers–Camden Online MSF program will help students hone the holistic skillset necessary to embrace the opportunities these disruptive forces are creating in the wealth management industry in as little as 12 months. With up to five years to graduate, the Online MSF program gives students the structure and flexibility to continue to work full-time while earning a graduate degree.

Successful financial advisors come from a wide variety of industries – from finance and accounting to education, psychology, and social work. To prepare graduates to move up in their current field or transition to a new field, two specializations are offered in Leadership in Wealth Management and Fintech in Wealth Management.  

  • For wealth management professionals destined for leadership roles, the MSF’s Leadership in Wealth Management Specialization is a perfect fit. Students who elect this specialization will take a series of courses that address all areas of business leadership, including teamwork, conflict resolution, negotiations, marketing, and much more.
  • For those who want to harness the transformative power of technology, the MSF’s Fintech in Wealth Management Specialization is the ticket to success. With courses in financial technology, financial innovation, data analytics, and machine learning, students will be immersed in the world of fintech.

What is in Your Tech Stack?
Through partnerships with industry leaders in wealth management technology, students will have complimentary access to and gain hands-on experience with critical wealth management software solutions.

  • Customer Relationship Management: RedTail
  • Financial Planning: MoneyGuide Pro and eMoney
  • Investment Data and Analytics: Morningstar
  • Risk Tolerance: Riskalyze

Why Rutgers–Camden?
It all starts with our faculty. They are experts in their fields who manage to pair internationally recognized research achievements with a passion for classroom education. They recognize the challenges and opportunities involved in teaching a class full of experienced professionals. Further, the faculty build their courses to make sure they are delivering truly practical education.

The MSF curriculum requires 30 graduate credits. The courses are delivered through a mix of synchronous and asynchronous online modalities.

All in all, it’s a great time to be at the Rutgers School of Business–Camden, and we invite you to visit us or attend a virtual information session to learn more about the Online MSF program and how you develop the skills to be a steward of tomorrow.

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.
