Clarke University is proud to announce the return of its Master of Business Administration degree. After a brief hiatus, the program has been restructured to better serve working adults who want to advance their careers while still working full-time and honoring personal commitments in their lives.
Changes to the program emphasizing flexibility and skill-based curriculum were driven by feedback from local and national employers, as well as input from past and current students. The 32-credit hour program is now available 100 percent online, with courses focused on leadership, management, and a variety of other skills that are in-demand across industry sectors. Courses are offered in eight-week sessions, meaning learners can earn their degree in less than two years.
Being able to adapt is a cornerstone of the business world, and now we’ve made it a foundational aspect of our MBA program,” said Business Chair Jody Wolfe, MBA, JD. “The flexible scheduling and the ability to develop a course plan catered to an individual’s interests and goals make Clarke University’s Master of Business Administration program a wise investment for anyone dedicated to career advancement.
Students in the MBA program have opportunities to pursue unique elective and certificate options. Earning a certificate in Business Management, Leadership, or Sport Management can help Clarke MBA graduates stand out from other applicants while also advancing their knowledge in their specific areas of interest.
The MBA also offers an Early Access program that allows current Clarke students to earn graduate credits while completing their undergraduate degree in business administration or a related field. This option reduces the cost and time required for students, while gaining a competitive advantage when they enter the work force. It is programs like this that reinforce Clarke’s commitment to offer students a high-quality, value-based education.
“Clarke’s revitalized MBA program opens educational access and leadership opportunities to diverse students at all life’s stages,” said Eden Wales Freedman, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty. “Our flexible, high-quality curriculum serves everyone – from undergraduates pursuing graduate credit to adults seeking career advancement and work-life balance. Our values-based program empowers students to reach their full potential, contribute to the wellbeing of others, and work collaboratively toward the common good – all while securing personal and professional success.”
The Master of Business Administration launches August 23 with new courses beginning every eight weeks. Learn more about the program at www.clarke.edu/mba.
