The Rutgers University Business for Youth (RUBY) program introduces qualified, underserved, inner-city high school students to college and careers in business.
The RUBY program presents students with the information, guidance, and motivation beneficial to achieving a successful career and to succeeding in life.
The program currently accepts approximately 130 high school students per year. All students come to campus three times during the year. Each visit is meant to give students insight into the business world and learn more about career terms, and network with current college students.
During their sophomore year, students are exposed to different business career paths, introduced to the Rutgers business majors, and develop soft skills through events and presentations.
During their junior year, students are guided through their college research process while continuing to be exposed to business career paths through listening opportunities with RBS faculty and recruiters. Students will also continue to develop technical and soft skills through presentations and participating in JA Titan.
During their senior year, students focus on applying to Rutgers Business School and other colleges. Current Rutgers Business School students work with high school students to provide guidance and plan their college career outlook.
