Acquire the Skills Employers Value Most

In a highly dynamic marketplace, competency alone won’t be enough.  To distinguish yourself, employees must have the requisite soft skills – leadership, collaboration, curiosity, empathy, objectivity, and versatility, along with excellent communication skills.  Through group projects and attendance in our soft skills workshops, students develop the Human Capital that separates them from the pack.

Teaching and Mentoring from Experienced Faculty

Accredited as one of the top business schools in New Jersey, Ramapo College offers highly experienced faculty who value teaching as much as they value researching the latest developments in their fields. Because many of our faculty have industry experience, they know how to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Learning to apply business theory in the real world is what distinguishes the MBA holder.


You don’t have to be an economist to appreciate the accelerated pace of corporate comings and goings.  Every day seems to bring new evidence of the market’s penchant for creative destruction. While the internet has enabled much of that disruption, it’s not alone. Artificial intelligence, blockchain, data analytics, and cryptocurrencies, promise to upend the marketplace in ways that seemed unimaginable just a few years ago.

Whether you’re running your own business or working for a Fortune 500 company, you’ll need to be a critical thinker.  Companies are looking for managers who aren’t afraid to take risks, but they’re also seeking professionals who know how to manage risk. They need employees with a vision of the future and the wherewithal to turn that vision into a reality. And no matter what the future holds, they want employees who embrace the importance of continuous learning and reinvention.

Ramapo College is looking for ambitious individuals who are committed to making a difference.  If you have your sights set on a Master’s degree, I encourage you to consider our new Flex MBA Curriculum.  It may just be the difference you’re looking for.

Our Flex Program Offers:

  • A 30 credit MBA for undergraduate business majors
  • A 42 credit MBA for non-business majors, including 12 credits of foundational business courses
  • Fall, spring, and summer start dates, and the ability to set your own pace
  • Hybrid learning model which combines online and classroom learning
  • A curriculum with an emphasis on developing leadership skills
