Courses and Requirements
The MBA Program consists of 11 core courses, 3 to 4 courses in your concentration, 1 to 2 electives and a capstone experience. Classes worth 1.0 unit are in session for the duration of the 14-week semester, while 0.5 unit courses are just 7 weeks long or a half-semester.
Flexible and Self-Paced
Adjust your course load to fit your schedule. Take just 1 or up to 2.5 classes each semester, in the evening, online or in an accelerated format.
Waivers and Transfer Credit
If you have taken courses in accounting, business law, finance, marketing, statistics, operations, economics or information systems, you may be able to accelerate your program. You are eligible to waive MBA courses if you have completed a similar undergraduate or graduate course with a grade of B- or higher in the past 6 years. Up to 2 units of graduate-level transfer credit will be granted if you completed coursework at an AACSB-accredited school.
Courses are offered in the Fall and Spring semesters, and during the Winter and Summer sessions. Clark holds classes on our main Worcester campus as well as the Graduate School of Management Metrowest Campus in Southborough, which is conveniently located between Worcester and Boston.
Alternative Admissions for Part-time Applicants
The Alternative Admissions Track (ALT) permits qualified part-time MBA applicants to submit an application without standardized test scores (GMAT or GRE). If accepted to the program based on your other credentials, you may enroll in 4 course units, and will be exempt from the standardized test requirement entirely if you achieve a GPA of 3.25 or higher in these preliminary units. Applicants must have a strong academic background, and a minimum of 3 years of professional work experience is preferred. Students who enroll via the Alternative Admissions Track are not eligible for merit based scholarships.
