MTSM Alumni Testimonial: James Schworn EMBA ’06

Written by: Julie Jacobs,

As deputy chief of Light Rail and Contract Services for New Jersey Transit in Newark, James Schworn is responsible for the daily operations of all light rail operations as well as private carriers for bus, ferry and paratransit service. He chose NJIT’s EMBA program for its strong business curriculum with its focus on technology, its flexibility and its affordability. James appreciated the small classes, the diversity of his fellow students and an environment he describes as dynamic and “extremely conducive to learning.” He remembers driving to NJIT on Saturday mornings and feeling excited to go to school again. James, who also teaches International Business at NJIT as an adjunct instructor, is confident his NJIT education contributed to his career progression and success.
