Making Connections

The Clarkson MBA program allowed me to develop pertinent business skills and meaningful connections with other students, both of which will help me throughout my career. Clarkson gave me the competitive edge I desired in the workplace and more.

- Samuel Kaplan '22, Online MBA

The Online MBA program feels like it was made for me and made my fear of impossible, possible. It is very possible to do with a full-time job. It is possible to do if you have been out of school for several years. It is possible to do if you are new to the world of business. Possible became a reality, and now I'm ready for the next step of my career, thanks to the education and support I received in the Clarkson MBA program.

Getting Prepared

"It gave me a lot of skills moving forward professionally. It certainly sharpened my professional skills. They not only wanted you to learn the business subjects but also prepare you for interviews, building your résumé and your cover letter – all the things to help you move forward in your career."

- Hailey Clark '21, Residential MBA

A week does not go by where I am not referencing something that I learned during my MBA, and I ... will surely utilize a significant amount of the information I learned as I navigate medical school and opening my own practice. The information alone that I gained has been incredibly helpful in my journey, but also the relationships you develop with your classmates and the faculty provide lifelong resources. I enjoyed the fact that I could complete the MBA at my own pace in as little as a year, as well. The program allowed me to be taught by professionals in the field who have real-world practical experience addressing the issues that we learned in class.
