RU Student Executive (RUSE) Program
Message from the RUSE Director
Dear Prospective RUSE Students:
I am excited to meet the fifth Rutgers University Student Executive (RUSE) class! This program is sponsored by the Rutgers School of Business–Camden, and we are looking forward to hosting you on our beautiful campus. The RUSE program introduces business and entrepreneurship to high-achieving RSBC undergraduate students AND 10th, 11th, and 12th grade New Jersey high school students.
For nine (9) weeks, a seminar facilitator will teach a core business topic each week and RUSE undergraduate and high school students will work in their respective teams to create their original business idea and business plan to compete in the end-of-program entrepreneurship pitch competition for a chance to win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place cash prizes! RUSE participants who win an award and meet other program criteria will earn a RUSE Foundations of Entrepreneurship Badge. Finally, the program features an informational seminar with a local organization.
