Clarkson University BS+MBA

SUNY Canton’s bachelor’s degree in Management is now connected with the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at Clarkson University, Potsdam. The Clarkson MBA is particularly well suited to the needs of graduates who have not had previous education in management or business. However, most MBA programs available today require several years of full-time study for such individuals. Normally, the first year of full-time study involves accelerated coverage of essentially undergraduate material. The One Year MBA program at Clarkson is exceptional because it provides guidance to prospective students in selecting the equivalent first-year courses prior to completing their undergraduate degree programs. In this way, an individual can complete work for the One Year MBA degree at Clarkson University in only one academic year (nine months) of additional study.

Admissions Requirements

Any SUNY Canton Healthcare Management graduate who at the time of admission to Clarkson’s Management MBA has a GPA of at least 3.0 and a GMAT score of at least 550 will be automatically admitted contingent upon graduation. Students with the 3.4 GPA are except from GMAT. Students should apply as soon as they complete the third year of undergraduate study. The agreement provides students an accelerated admissions process as well as exclusive scholarship opportunities.

The program is typically 2 years. However, Management students have the ability to reduce their program with course waivers that can be achieved through SUNY Canton:
