Rutgers School of Business-Camden
Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to the Rutgers School of Business-Camden!

“Doing well by doing good” is more than a good idea. It’s smart business strategy that empowers successful business leaders to add value to their organizations and their communities simultaneously.

The Rutgers School of Business–Camden is at the forefront of top business schools preparing the next generation of business professionals with the essential knowledge for a positive social impact. We know that the value of responsible business education is central to the success of our society. Across industries, sectors, and functions, as organizations leverage the opportunities and embrace the challenges presented by global connectedness, technological advancements, and social responsibility, the ethical practice of business is more crucial than ever before.

Rutgers University–Camden prepares business professionals to become catalysts of change. Creativity, flexibility, and collaboration are among the critical skills that we incorporate into our curriculum – skills that are needed now more than ever. The ongoing pandemic has caused us all to pivot in unanticipated ways, bringing forth the positive character of individuals and institutions – from businesses that accelerated innovation and adapted their operations to meet the needs of our nation to individuals who have put their own lives at the forefront to improve those of others. Their stories highlight the collective positive impact each of us can have, and one to which, as a business professional, I hope you will commit.

Understanding the language and practice of business provides a strong foundation for your professional success and personal influence, and cuts across every career, including the arts, healthcare, technology, journalism, or communication.

The Rutgers School of Business–Camden, an AACSB International-accredited institution, gives you the opportunity to distinguish yourself through interactions with faculty who are world-class educators and researchers and with a creative team of staff members who are dedicated to our students’ success. We are committed to providing you with transformative community engagement and leadership opportunities. Our alumni and partners are dedicated to your success and work closely to mentor our students through leadership programs. And finally, our collaborations with high-quality universities in countries, such as Brazil, China, and South Africa, provide multiple opportunities for international exposure. With this strong foundation, you will be poised to make a positive difference. I hope you will leverage these opportunities to become a part and the best of Rutgers. Our success. Our pride.

It is a great time to be a part of the Rutgers School of Business–Camden. I encourage you to connect with our dedicated staff, faculty, and leadership to determine how our world-class education can shape your personal and professional growth.

Best Wishes,

Monica Adya, PhD
Dean & Professor of Management

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.
