Being both creative and financially astute is often an elusive combination of skills to have. Thanks to Rutgers Business School–Newark and New Brunswick, students interested in a career in fashion can now hone their business acumen through the school’s new master’s in business of fashion program, which is attracting business professionals and boutique owners as well as students whose families are involved in manufacturing operations that serve apparel designers. “It’s the only program like it outside of Paris or Italy,” says Sarah Jacobson, a current student who has had a career in various facets of the fashion industry. “It’s an amazing program. I can’t wait to see where it takes me.” — Susan Todd
