Rutgers EMBA gave engineer a perspective that proved beneficial as he climbed company ranks

GREGORY SAUTER, A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER

Gregory Sauter, an executive with the engineering titan AECOM Technology Corp. and a Rutgers Executive MBA alumnus, is happy to talk about the non-traditional start of his career.

Sauter veered from tradition when he realized he couldn’t muster up any excitement for his college liberal arts courses. After his first year, he packed up his bags and returned home to forge a more challenging path into the future: With little to draw on except having helped his father fix things around the house and some summer jobs, he started a construction company of his own.

“I wasn’t inspired,” he said, recalling his decision to abandon college and start working on his own. “What interested me was working with my hands and creating something.”

Padma Arvind is the director of the New Jersey Health Care Talent Network (NJ HCTN), one of the state’s six talent networks, established to focus on the specific needs of key industries in New Jersey. From 1990 through 2012, the health care sector has added 180,600 new jobs, while all other industries combined have had a net gain of only 79,800, according to information from the New Jersey Department of Labor. This industry’s resilience, despite economic downturns, makes health care a driver in New Jersey’s labor market. To help promote opportunities in health care, NJ HCTN spearheaded the first New Jersey Health Care Industry Week in collaboration with several of the state’s community colleges and medical institutions in April. Rutgers sat down with Arvind to learn more about her work and vision for the New Jersey Health Care Talent Network.

Rutgers University's bond with Central Park is as strong as the hardy grass a Rutgers professor plucked from Sheep Meadow in the1960s and cultivated into world-class turf.

Rutgers and the Central Park Conservancy, a non-profit organization responsible for the restoration, maintenance and enhancement of the iconic park in Manhattan, have strengthened their collective expertise in horticulture and turf care ever since through years of collaboration and training.

"The partnership between Rutgers and the Central Park Conservancy is preparing the next generation of environmental stewards with the tools to manage landscapes and help them flourish," said Douglas Blonsky CC'83 , president and chief executive officer of CPC – and a Rutgers graduate.

Noncredit, continuing education programs at Rutgers can help open the door to new careers and opportunities for unemployed individuals who qualify for Workforce Development Grants. Currently, hundreds of Rutgers training programs are eligible for tuition grants through the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

Many Rutgers programs also accept workforce grants from other states for non-New Jersey residents.
