Undergraduate Programs in Management

Clark's tradition of challenging convention and changing the world is evident in our undergraduate management programs, and nurtures innovative and socially responsible entrepreneurs and industry leaders. Studying management at Clark exposes you to all functional areas of business, while teaching you the critical thinking and communication skills that are essential in a liberal arts environment and vital to the success of today's managers. Clark's Program of Liberal Studies enables you to combine your interest in management with a wide range of other interests such as film, art history and government. Clark GSOM's offerings include a management major and minor, as well as the accelerated or 'fifth year' B.A./M.B.A. and B.A./M.S.F. programs (with the fifth year tuition-free). You might also be interested in the minor in Innovation & Entrepreneurship.

Management Major

The management major is a pre-professional program that consists of 8 prerequisite courses, which you take during your first and sophomore year, and 8 required courses, which you take during your junior and senior years.

Juniors and seniors also have the option to conduct a Directed Reading project in management, under the guidance of a faculty supervisor. Students interested in the Directed Reading must complete the Undergraduate Directed Reading Form [PDF] and submit it for departmental approval.

Management Minor

If your primary interest is in the the liberal arts or sciences, but you would like exposure to management topics, you should consider management as an undergraduate minor.

The management minor consists of 6 courses in management. All students will take MGMT100, The Art & Science of Management, and select 5 management elective courses (3 of which you will take at the 200 level or above) to personalize the minor based on their academic and career interests.
