    • If you do not meet the above criteria, you may still request a Test Waiver. Upload a brief document with the reason for the request. Waivers are highly selective and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
    • A GMAT of 450 or better is required for applicants who do not meet the waiver criteria. Scoring 450 or better GMAT score does not guarantee admission to RSBC Graduate Programs.
    • Rutgers School of Business–Camden will accept a GRE score in lieu of GMAT and calculate the percentile rank for 450 GMAT score and use the same percentile rank for GRE. 
    • Approval of a waiver is not a guarantee of a formal acceptance into the program in question.
    • Applicants of RSBC Graduate Programs can defer their application for up to 1 year. 
    • If a student was admitted to one of our graduate programs and defers their admission within the one-year timeframe, the student’s GMAT waiver will move with the application. 
Waiver Request Form
  • GMAT waivers are granted specifically for the selected Rutgers School of Business–Camden graduate program based on relevant progressive work experience and academic preparation for the program. A waiver is not a guarantee of a formal acceptance into the program in question. If you are uncertain of your qualifications, we encourage moving forward with your GMAT Waiver Request.

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.

Requirements

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.
