Transform your career with a world-class business degree

Because ‘business as usual’ has changed

Business leaders today must embrace a new type of leadership where ethics, corporate responsibility, sustainability, and social innovation are essential for success. So the Clark MBA does more than deliver core competencies in accounting, management, marketing, finance, and analytics. We prepare students who can meet the demand for socially-conscious business practices.

Build confidence and your resume

Through classroom and experiential learning, you will learn by doing, and benefit from a broad range of perspectives and acquire leadership qualities that are in demand. And you will translate your academic insights into real-world practice through student projects and internships that build confidence as well as your resume.

Get credit for your work experience

We value your professional work experience. If you have spent three or more years in a managerial position, you may be eligible for a course waiver, allowing you to earn your Clark MBA faster.

The Essentials

Program Overview

Clark’s MBA allows you to complete the program at your own pace by choosing either full- or part-time enrollment status and beginning in either Spring, Summer (online only),  or Fall. A choice of seven distinct concentrations allows you to tailor your experience to fit your needs and interests.

We value your professional work experience. Students with sufficient experience as a manager in a professional position may be eligible for a course waiver, allowing mid-level professionals to advance quickly. Successful completion of an undergraduate or graduate course in economics is required prior to starting the program.

  • The ability to develop innovative solutions to complex management challenges
  • An understanding of the cultural, economic, environmental, and political factors shaping management today
  • Insight into how to solve real-world problems in a global context
  • Competencies to help your company tap into emerging markets
  • Business in Society
  • International Management
  • Sustainability Consulting Projects
  • Creating Effective Organizations: Leadership
  • Strategic Decision Making

For students who have applied for and been accepted to the Professional Track (worked for three or more years in a professional position with managerial experience), the MBA program differs in the following ways:

  • Students are waived of the Experiential Learning Requirement (ELR) – Internship.
  • Students may be waived of, at most, one unit in MIS, MKT, FIN, ACCT, or OM based on extensive work experience. Waivers are granted by the Graduate Admissions Review Committee at the time of admission. (Note: Being accepted to the Professional Track does not guarantee a course waiver.)
  • The total unit requirement for the program is 12 units, depending on waivers.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Your internship is waived; however, if you decide you would like to do an internship, you will be required to use Optional Practical Training (OPT.) You will not be allowed to use Curricular Practical Training (CPT), nor will you be allowed to switch to the Traditional MBA in order to complete an internship as part of your program.
