Through careful planning, students with backgrounds in engineering, liberal arts, or science may complete the foundation courses as part of an undergraduate minor or through pursuing the Summer Business Concepts program offered online, preceding the start of the regular fall semester. Articulation agreements, which specify acceptable foundation courses, exist for Clarkson’s engineering and science programs and a number of universities in the United States and Canada.
Beyond the foundation, the 38 credits of the Residential MBA degree program consist of 10 2-credit interrelated core modules, five 3-credit graduate elective courses, and a 3-credit experiential course. The core modules stress business functions, emphasizing the development of communication, interpersonal and managerial skills.
Experiential learning is a strong part of Clarkson's culture so each student participating in the Residential MBA program is required to take a 3-credit-hour experiential course. Currently, the experiential requirement can be satisfied by participating in the Global Business Program or by taking the SB696 Global Business Strategies course.
The Global Business Program offers several options that are designed to give you knowledge and new perspectives regarding international business, helping you develop critical skills necessary to compete and succeed in the global market. The most popular Global Business Program option is the course that includes a 2- to 3-week trip to an international destination, often led by the faculty from that area. This course offers a unique opportunity to explore business outside the traditional classroom boundaries and to provide a unique experience to your resume. This course also helps students explore the global management issues facing business leaders and organizations in different parts of the world.The Global Specialty Track Residential MBA follows the same curriculum structure and has the same foundation requirements as the regular Residential MBA program, with students completing up to six courses abroad during their spring semester at one of the partner AACSB-accredited institutions. Students starting in the spring semester cannot participate in the Global Track program in their first semester.
Clarkson’s two-year dual-degree program leading to a Master of Science in Environmental Policy (MSEP) degree and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree integrates the study of the function and management of complex environmental systems.
There are 16 credits of overlapping coursework between the MSEP and MBA programs, allowing for the 38-credit-hour MBA program and 30-credit-hour MSEP program to be completed together in a combined 52 credit program of study spanning two years, including an MS thesis (6 credits) supporting the EP degree.
