U.S. News & World Report Ranks Clarkson University Online MBA Program in Nation's Top-50

U.S. News & World Report has ranked Clarkson University's online MBA program as one of the top-50 in the nation.

Mike WassermanClarkson's School of Business offers both a master of business administration (MBA) and a master of science in engineering management degree online.

U.S. News released its 2017-2018 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."

The report also ranked Clarkson in the top-60 best online business graduate programs (non-MBA) in the nation for 2017.

"These rankings are an indication of the continued success of our faculty and graduates that sets them apart as experts in their field," said School of Business Dean Dayle M. Smith. "The partnerships that Clarkson has established with industry leaders allow us to tailor the curriculum and networking opportunities to give our students the knowledge and experience to excel in the global marketplace."

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 who teach on campus, which differentiates Clarkson's program from many of those offered by other schools.

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.
