Rutgers School of Business–Camden
Alumni Association

As alumni, Rutgers School of Business–Camden (RSBC) will continue to support you and connect you to resources, opportunities, and most importantly, your classmates!

No matter where you live or where you are in your career or life, our alumni have more opportunities than ever to stay connected to Rutgers and each other. Our alumni become part of an ever-growing network of achievers who care about their communities and their campus.

The recently launched RSBC Alumni Association’s mission is to provide a venue for our alumni to nurture engagement, encouragement, interest, and involvement in RSBC activities, networks, and programs. The association aims to encourage alumni to network and stay informed about the School, as well as explore and promote the many programs their alma mater has to offer.

It couldn’t be easier for alumni to join in: there are no dues, membership is automatic upon graduation, and existing (pre-association) alumni have already been added as members. The Alumni Association team also welcomes ideas and questions from alumni.

The success of RSBC depends on you!

The support of our alumni and friends provides vital, irreplaceable support to enhance our current academic and student programs, expand educational opportunities, recruit and retain top-notch faculty, students, and staff, and ensure that the most promising students can attend the RSBC, regardless of economic status.

The Rutgers University Foundation coordinates the support for the RSBC. We direct and support all activities to generate financial support to benefit our students, faculty, and programs. Working with our outstanding alumni, as well as our friends and partners in the business community, funds are raised for scholarships, graduate fellowships, and professorships.

RSBC relies on the support of many alumni and friends who make gifts of cash, securities, planned gifts, and multi-year pledges. Therefore, your generosity has a direct impact on students, faculty, and the entire Rutgers School of Business–Camden community.

Contact the staff of the RUAA through the Office of Alumni Relations at Rutgers–Camden for information on events, programs, and activities for all of our graduates!

The Office of Alumni Relations is proud to serve the graduates of the Rutgers School of Business-Camden, as well as all Rutgers alums living and working in southern New Jersey.

BLDP Shadowing Days Application

After being notified of a match, students are responsible for providing personal information to the matched executive (e.g., current resume and cover letter with information on career ambitions). The information on this application is for internal use only, for us to match you as well as possible with and executive from among our alumni database.

BLDP Application

The Fall 2021 Application is now open! 

Priority will be given to applications received by Friday, April 2, 2021. 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. Personal essay
  3. 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.
