Who is Eligible?

You can compete in the Rutgers Business School Business Plan Competition as an individual or as a member of a team. Teams can have up to five members. If you are competing as an individual, you must be in one of the three eligible categories:

  • Current Rutgers Business School Senior
  • Current Rutgers Business School MBA Student
  • Recent Rutgers Business School MBA Alumnus and recent graduate (you must have graduated from the program in the last three years)

In order to compete, there must be a serious intent to launch the proposed business in the short-term.

Any current Rutgers University student not in the three eligible categories may participate as a member of a team, provided that at least one person from the eligible categories is in a leadership role with regard to the proposed business. If you are a current Rutgers University student who is not in one of the three eligible leadership categories, you can still compete in the competition. We will try to match you with a team of eligible members. Alternatively, if you are in one of the eligible leadership categories and would like to join the competition, we will try to match you with a competing team.
