    Teamwork is a central focus of Clarkson’s One-Year AACSB accredited MBA program. We emphasize the development of effective communication skills, including oral, written and multimedia methods. The core courses use cases, behavioral role playing, and simulation gaming as teaching methods. Several hands-on projects, consulting projects, and global business program opportunities provide application of theory to real business situations.

    The One-Year Accounting MBA is a 38 credit-hour program. All students are required to take ten (two credit hours each) MBA modules with a required experiential course (three credit hours). You also have the option to specialize in your chosen field by completing one of our Advanced Certificate Programs, recognized by New York state for academic rigor and leadership development:

    • Global Supply Chain Management

    • Innovation and New Venture Management

    • Environmental Management

    • Accounting

    • Six Sigma & Process Improvement


    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
