Clarkson University's MBA program reflects a strong sense of community. Approximately 60-80 students are enrolled in the MBA program either on a full-time or a part-time basis. Diversity is evident throughout the program; women usually constitute 30-40 percent of full-time students.

Recent classes have included students from France, Norway, Canada, India, China, France, Ghana, Israel, Russia, Thailand and Turkey. Students also come from diverse academic backgrounds, with more than half of the entering class holding undergraduate degrees in liberal arts, engineering or the sciences.

The vast majority of graduate students live in low-cost, off-campus housing in close proximity to the University.

The Graduate Business Association is a student organization that organizes social activities, professional events, and community service initiatives. There are also a number of clubs and organizations on campus that students may get involved in during their stay at Clarkson. Clarkson has an International Student Organization, a Chinese Students Association, the Friends of India and the Muslim Students Association, and an International Student Advisor who can provide additional assistance to international students with housing, travel, visa regulations and other issues.


Our graduate students also take advantage of Clarkson's fitness facilities at the Schuler Indoor Recreation Center, which includes a field house, weight room, fitness center, swimming pool, gymnasium and racquetball courts. The Cheel Arena located in the Cheel Campus Center also provides opportunities for skating, hockey and broomball.
