Clarkson University Online MBA is Best Value

Clarkson University has been named to the "Top 50 Best Value Online MBA Programs" list by Value Colleges, an independent online guide to the best values in undergraduate and graduate college education.

Clarkson University School of Business Associate Professor Michael Wasserman conducts an online class.In its news release, Value Colleges said, "Value Colleges' Top 50 Best Value Online MBA list is a guide to the online colleges and universities that give students the best return for their investment: online business colleges that provide the ideal combination of affordability and excellence, with high ROI and low debt. These online business schools represent the most secure investment for students hoping to improve their education and status with a convenient, flexible degree program."

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.

"Any concerns about the real value of an online degree belong to the past," said Value Colleges Editor Carrie Sealey-Morris. "Reputable, world-class institutions are offering online MBA's that have the same quality as their traditional, on-campus degree program. While some students may be concerned about lack of contact with their classmates, many of the best schools, such as those on this list, have developed innovative ways to combat the limitations of older online methods by using cohort formats, connecting students with one-on-one advisors or mentors, and providing opportunities for students to engage in the kind of networking and relationship-building that traditional MBA programs excel in."

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

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.
