Better leaders. Better world.

At Clark, we don’t graduate future managers; we graduate future leaders. You’ll go beyond the nuts and bolts of income, revenue, forecasts, and profit margins, and will be immersed in management — embracing the legal, ethical, social, and environmental dimensions of the business world.

Through classroom projects, internship opportunities, and participation in on-campus organizations like the Entrepreneurship Club, Investments and Trading Society, and Net Impact, the management major will help you develop and exercise strong leadership skills and graduate with all the tools you’ll need to succeed in any business setting.

Why Study Management at Clark?

  • Join a community of students and scholars in Clark’s Graduate School of Management (GSOM), which has been named by Princeton Review as one of the best business schools in America; ranked 16th on Forbes’  list of America’s Most Entrepreneurial Universities; and is among the fewer than five percent of the world’s business schools to receive AACSB accreditation.
  • Benefit from our strong commitment to the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), which integrates sustainability and social responsibility into our research and teaching.
  • Learn from distinguished faculty who have extensive management experience, including serving as marketing consultants to brands like Gillette, L.L. Bean, and Godiva; as social entrepreneurs; and as advocates for sustainable business practices with foreign businesses.
  • Connect classroom learning with community businesses and organizations through hands-on projects that let you make a real impact on important initiatives.

Your Will. Your Way.

The Major Path

Studying business management in the liberal arts tradition at Clark is especially useful because management is increasingly being seen as more than just as a set of “hard” skills. In our classes, you’ll learn the nuances and “soft” skills that make management an art, rather than a science. Courses also stress putting theoretical knowledge into current practice; you will complete in-depth case studies and group projects based on real business challenges, and solve real-time problems for actual companies. All of your classes are taught by faculty members who are dedicated to responsible financial business practices on a global scale.

Fifteen courses are required for the major: one in economics, 12 in management, and an additional two management courses of your choice.

Skills you will learn include how to:

  • Understand the cultural, economic, environmental, and political factors shaping management today
  • Develop innovative solutions to complex management challenges
  • Solve real-world problems in a global context
  • Leverage crucial communication and managerial skills

The LEEP difference

An education merging knowledge, action, and impact

With Liberal Education and Effective Practice, lessons begin in the classroom but never end there. Your learning includes world and workplace experiences that forge your skills and shape your path.
