Clarkson’s School of Business students can break from academics and explore the Adirondack Mountains and Lake Placid, take a day trip to New York City, or drive an hour to Canada. Business students can connect with the university community by cheering on the Clarkson athletic teams, including the Division I, nationally recognized Golden Knights hockey teams.

In the classroom, graduate students in the Clarkson University School of Business get hands-on learning experience by working in teams and with real clients. Full-time M.B.A. students must travel abroad in a student group with a faculty leader, and on campus, they have the option of participating in the Clarkson Consulting Group, which helps local entrepreneurs with their business issues.

There are several ways for Clarkson grad students to earn an M.B.A., including the 38-hour, one-year program. Clarkson also offers a one-year Global M.B.A., which allows students to take electives in locations such as China, Australia, and France.

Students who work full time can check out the Clarkson School of Business online M.B.A., which has flexible scheduling and is typically completed in two years. Clarkson University graduate business students can also pursue a two-year joint M.B.A. and master of engineering, or an M.S. in engineering and global operations management.

School of Business students can make the most of their degrees by stopping by the Clarkson Career Center, which helps students arrange study abroad, internship, and co-op opportunities, and provides career advising and interview training, among other services.
