U.S. News & World Report has ranked Clarkson University's online MBA program as one of the top-40 in the nation.

U.S. News released its 2015-2016 rankings of the Best Online MBA Programs, saying these schools are "the best online master's degree programs in business administration, based on factors such as admissions selectivity, reputation for excellence among peer institutions and academic and career support services offered to students."

"I am pleased that our professors and students were recognized for their accomplishments, for standing out and standing ahead of their peers," says Associate Dean of Graduate Business Programs Stephen J. Sauer. "This ranking is a reflection of our continued commitment to making our curriculum better and more relevant than others -- and making our graduates stronger candidates as they enter the competitive job market. We’ve built one of the best online learning environments to meet the needs of our students. They know that there’s no need to sacrifice academic rigor and high standards to complete their MBAs online.”

The opportunity to study online is vital to students who need an MBA, but cannot attend school full-time or part-time because of their travel schedules. By leveraging information technology with online programs, Clarkson's School of Business connects students and faculty by providing an experience equal to being on campus in the classroom.

Clarkson's online MBA classes are taught by the same regular full-time professors that teach on campus. This differentiates Clarkson's program from many of those offered by other schools.

"Utilizing facilitated learning, our faculty maintains a high level of interaction with our online students," says School of Business Dean Dayle M. Smith. "As well, our established partnerships with industry help us tailor the curriculum and extensive networking opportunities to students. This makes our graduates more knowledgeable, more prepared and very attractive to employers."

Clarkson offers distance learning graduate study opportunities in business, engineering, science and technology through a unique click-and-brick model. The University’s off-campus graduate programs engage students in both their places of employment through either real-time or self-directed collaborative learning and use of real-time work projects -- the click part of the equation -- and on campus -- the brick -- through intense immersion experiences.
