Clarkson University Named Top-100 Business School by U.S. News

The Clarkson University School of Business has been ranked one of the top-100 business schools in the nation in the U.S. News & World Report 2011 Best Graduate School listings.

Clarkson offers a One-year MBA Program, a Global One-year MBA Program, an Online MBA in Supply Chain Management, a Master of Science in Engineering & Global Operations Management, and a Master of Engineering/MBA Dual Degree Program.

"I am gratified others are beginning to learn what we already know, that Clarkson embraces excellence and our programs are competitive with the very best in class," said Timothy F. Sugrue, dean of the School of Business.

Clarkson’s graduate business programs are designed to give students a dynamic experience based on team-oriented courses and hands-on, real-world opportunities. The school’s classes are designed in consultation with major international employers and delivered by faculty who are experts in their respective fields. Small class sizes help students to develop relationships with their classmates and professors.

The Clarkson School of Business and its programs are accredited by AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business).

To determine the best graduate schools, U.S. News surveys all 433 master’s programs in business accredited by AACSB. Scoring is based on quality assessment, placement success, and student selectivity

Last month, Clarkson University was also named one of the top-100 Best Undergraduate Business Schools by Bloomberg Business Week.
