The Residential MBA consists of foundation courses in 10 specified areas and 38 credit hours of advanced graduate work. Students with undergraduate business majors will waive most or all of the foundation courses.
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.
The foundation includes the following subjects:
- Organizational behavior
- Operations and production management
- Quantitative methods/statistics
- Financial and managerial accounting
- Information technology
- Corporate finance
