The College of Business Administration's AACSB International-accredited M.B.A. is offered in different formats to meet the varied needs of our students. A traditional program is available for students without an undergraduate business background. A three-semester and an 11 month program are available for those with undergraduate degrees in a business related field. A part-time online program is offered through Clarion's Virtual Campus to benefit working professionals and others seeking a fully accredited, on-line M.B.A.
The major objective is to provide a basic core of knowledge about various theories, techniques, and practices of administering business activities and problem solving. In addition, candidates for the degree have an opportunity for in-depth study in a particular area of interest.
Specific objectives are to prepare candidates for: positions in middle management with private and public organizations; teaching positions in community colleges, and enrollment in doctoral programs in business administration.
The program is designed for candidates with undergraduate degrees in fields other than business administrations well as graduates of business degree programs.
