The MBA degree provides students with the skills to be effective business leaders. At Clarkson, the program offers small class sizes and close faculty-student interaction. Integrated core courses ensure that students share common experiences, while elective courses provide an opportunity for specialized study. The MBA consists of foundation courses in nine specified areas and 35 credit hours of advanced graduate work. The foundation includes courses from the following subjects: financial and managerial accounting, computer fundamentals, corporate finance, micro and macro economics, law and society, organizational behavior, marketing, operations and production management, and quantitative methods/statistics. Students with appropriate undergraduate coursework can be awarded credit for foundation course requirements. Students may also participate in the summer business concepts program and complete these requirements three months prior to the MBA program. Beyond the foundation, the 35-hour core of the MBA consists of ten two-credit interrelated modules, four three-credit graduate elective courses, and a three-credit experiential course. The experiential course can be completed by participating in the Clarkson Consulting Group (team-based project) or by pursuing one of our summer international abroad options. Summer abroad options in various countries have included China, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The core modules stress business functions, emphasizing the development of global communication, interpersonal, and managerial skills. A Strategic Planning module and the Information Systems module are also required during the spring semester. The other modules are taught for seven weeks each.
