Student Life

As an undergraduate management major, minor or accelerated student at Clark, you have many opportunities to enhance your academic, professional and personal life. You can build your resume and gain hands-on work experience with an internship at a multi-national corporation.

Recent Management students have completed internships with:

  • Forbes Magazine
  • Merrill Lynch
  • Ashoka Global Headquarters
  • WGBH

Studying abroad is also an excellent way to enrich your experience as a student of management. Management students have studied at the London School of Economics, University of Stirling in Scotland and Murdoch University in Australia. Volunteer work and participation in student groups and clubs are a great way to learn valuable teamwork and leadership skills. Many Management students are active campus leaders, serving as residence hall advisors, athletic team captains, or officers in one of Clark's many student organizations, while others contribute their time and effort to developing the surrounding Worcester community.

Through a collaboration with Professor David Jordan (MGMT245 Social Entrepreneurship) and Seven Hills Foundation, students also have the opportunity to take part in a global service learning experience during an academic break. In January 2010, a group of Clark students traveled to Sierra Leone to volunteer at the Fresh-Hope Organization and their recently opened Baby Rescue Center; learn about the issues surrounding maternal mortality in the country, as well as operating an aid organization; and develop a lasting partnership to assist the women and children of Sierra Leone.

Clark hosts lectures and events throughout the year that highlight global business issues and successful business leaders" career paths. Past speakers have included Matt Goldman, Clark alumnus and co-founder of the Blue Man Group; Michael Eskew, chairman and CEO of UPS; and Natalie Gustafson, Emmy award-winning television producer.
