The Graduate School of Management at Clark University launched in 1982, and over the past 25 years has experienced rapid growth, to the extent that it is now annually recognized by The Princeton Review as a “best business school”. Given the increasingly interconnected world of the 21st century, Clark prides itself on producing graduates who are innovative, resilient and unafraid to tackle complex problems on a global scale – from climate change to the fracturing of civil institutions.

This is a philosophy the Clark full-time MBA fully embraces. The one-year program provides opportunities to learn responsible management practices that emphasize creating value for society, as well as a firm foundation in leadership and corporate accountability. The average MBA class size is just 25, making for an individualized experience where students get to know each other and can form a close support network. The competition for places on the program is stiff, with an acceptance rate of 30.2%. That said, the application process is simple enough: students need to submit an online application form as well as supporting credentials, such as recommendations, resumes, writing samples and more. Tuition for the full-time MBA currently costs US$67,502.

Academically, the Clark full-time MBA can be tailored to suit students’ interests, with the option of choosing from a variety of concentrations, such as finance, social change, sustainability, and marketing. Adding to the flexibility, there are also two points of entry, either in January or September. The full-time course takes 21 months to complete, with students typically taking 12 core courses, three to four courses of a concentration, an experiential learning course (management consulting projects, sustainability consulting projects, marketing consulting projects or entrepreneurship), as well as a professional internship. Students can also gain hands-on experience and an international perspective through a specialty course or exchange program, which have previously seen students wing their way to France or Sweden to study business and management.

Clark MBA graduates are astute at translating business acumen into meaningful career opportunities, and work at world-renowned companies such as the World Bank, Ernst & Young, and PwC. Alumni of the Clark MBA program earn a mid-career median salary of $126,200, according the College Salary Report, placing it seventh among all New England business schools and in the top 50 in the US in terms of MBA salary potential. Average starting salaries are US$50,000, with 39% of students receiving a job offer within three months of graduating.
