Early Access Master of Business Administration

We are not currently admitting students to this program, as we are working on a redesign.

Get a Head Start

The Clarke University Early Access MBA Program (33 hours) seeks to attract young professionals who are interested in ethical business practices and life-long learning. The Early Access program offers eligible students the ability to complete three to 12 hours of graduate credit while in their undergraduate degree program. Three to seven hours may be taken in the fall semester (students should begin with the BUMG 502 orientation course) and three to six hours may be taken in the spring semester. The three to 12 credits will be counted as general elective credits toward their bachelor’s degree.

To be eligible for admission to the Early Access MBA program as a Clarke University undergraduate, the applicant must have finished a minimum of 30 credit hours from Clarke University prior to matriculation in the MBA program.

Undergraduate Degree Options

Students may choose from a variety of undergraduate majors. It is necessary for the student to work closely with his/her adviser to complete the necessary program of study that meets the major, general education and prerequisite requirements to qualify for the Early-Access MBA program. Students who qualify will start the MBA program during their junior or senior year and finish their undergraduate degree while accumulating up to 12 credits toward the MBA degree. After the completion of the undergraduate degree, students may continue in the MBA Program. When work responsibilities, course schedules and the students’ undergraduate major requirements allow, they may be eligible to seek an exception and complete 12 credits each semester of the fifth year.
