Clark Graduate School of Management
As MBA programs go, Clark University’s Graduate School of Management is a small and intimate program with just over 150 full-time students. They tend to be more international than most, with nearly six out of every ten students from outside the U.S., and young, with the average age of a graduate student 25. The school is generally known for its friendly students, cutting-edge courses and programs, teamwork, and emphasis on the global economy.
For a small school that is off the radar, the MBA program offers students surprising versatility. There are concentrations in social change and sustainability, we well as the more mainstream specializations in accounting, finance, global business, information systems, management, and marketing. The school’s curriculum emphasizes essential “soft” skills such as strategic decision-making, leadership, negotiation and communication.
The Global Business Seminar is a capstone course that includes a week-long trip to an international business hub. The course focuses on a different country each year examining its business and economic environment and culiminating with a visit to a variety of companies within the country. This year’s class traveled to Buenos Aries, Argentina while past trips have included France, China and Germany. Clark also offers an unique Doing Business in Northern Europe Program, an accelerated four-week business course that takes place at a major university in Sweden.
The school also offers dual master’s degrees in community development and planning as well as environmental science and policy.
Just 45 minutes away from Boston and 60 minutes out of Providence, the urban campus is in much more affordable Worcester, Mass.
