Clark University is truly a global institution, granting undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees to international students at our Worcester, MA campus, and at branch campuses and partner schools around the world.
The Clark approach to learning integrates hands-on experience with coursework taught by professors who are currently working in the field. Blending the practical and the pedagogical has earned Clark a reputation for providing excellent professional preparation to students who graduate with the tools needed to create meaningful, positive change in their careers, their companies, and their communities.
We prepare all of our students — both in the US and abroad — to be successful leaders in the increasingly globalized workplace.
Since 2004, Clark’s partnership with Poland’s Spoleczna Akademia Nauk (University of Social Sciences or SAN) on campuses in Lodz and Warsaw has provided international students with the opportunity to earn the following Clark degrees, administered by the School of Professional Studies:
- Master of Science in Communications
- Master of Public Administration
- Master of Science in Information Technology
Students can choose to participate in a dual degree program, allowing them to earn an MBA from SAN and a Master’s degree from Clark.
One third of the courses at the Poland campuses are offered as intensive summer courses taught in English by Clark faculty with additional courses taught by SAN’s Polish faculty. Students have the opportunity to study at Clark in Worcester during their last one or two semesters.
Clark also has a partnership with the Cracow School of Business (CSB) at Cracow University of Economics which offers a dual degree of an MBA from CSB and a Master of Science in Communication from Clark.
The cohort-based programs have full-day classes held exclusively on weekends. The sessions are intensive and designed to integrate with students’ professional and personal lives by allowing them to continue to work full-time while earning their degrees. The curriculum mirrors that of Clark’s Worcester campus and includes a final Capstone project that applies coursework and student learning to real-world business challenges.
The School of Professional Studies has a relationship with two different universities in China: Shandong University of Science and Technology (SDUST) and Hefei University of Technology (HEFUT).
At SDUST, Clark provides instruction in two undergraduate degree programs in Management Information System and International Economics and Trade. We have the same model in HEFUT with one major, International Economics and Trade. Unlike our programs in Poland, these degrees are not Clark University degrees but are governed by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
While students in these programs sometimes complete their entire degree in China, some choose to take advantage of an accelerated degree program (3+1+1) that enables them to spend their senior year at Clark’s Worcester campus and transfer course credit back to China to complete their undergraduate degree. They may then choose to remain at Clark and earn a Clark University master’s degree in the second +1 year.
