Message From the RUSE Director

Dear Prospective RUSE students:

I am excited to meet the third 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 was launched to introduce business as an academic discipline and career to high-achieving, underrepresented 10th, 11th, and 12th grade high school students in the South Jersey area. We look forward to hosting you on our campus over the nine-week program in Spring 2020. In our program, you will learn from internationally-recognized business school faculty and top business and community leaders. Additionally, you will be assigned mentors throughout the program’s duration who are current Rutgers School of Business-Camden undergraduate students. The program will feature an off-site trip to a local organization and culminate with a case competition.

Here’s a video story from the 2018 RUSE 2018 Cohort.

We look forward to an exciting program and much success to you! We look forward to seeing you in RUSE!
