The Graduate School of Management at Clark University (GSOM) has once again been named one of the nation’s outstanding business schools by The Princeton Review. The education services company profiles the school in its 2019 annual guide to the best 252 business schools, and specifically recognizes GSOM’s on-campus MBA program. Clark also appears on the list of the best business schools in the Northeast.
The rankings are based on a combination of institutional and student survey data, including career outcomes, admissions selectivity, and academic rigor, among others.
The profile of GSOM includes quotes from students, who report a “collaborative atmosphere” and a diverse student body that brings different perspectives to the classroom. Students praise the interdisciplinary dual-degree program offered in conjunction with the International Development, Community, and Environment Department, as well as classes that allow for “many opportunities to help real businesses in the city,” which lead to real-world experience they can carry into the workplace.
“We are pleased to once again be recognized by The Princeton Review as having one of the best MBA programs in the country,” GSOM Interim Dean Priscilla Elsass says. “I am proud of the commitment and passion of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni. We strive to be a highly regarded, diverse community in which future business leaders can think critically and work collaboratively as they contribute to their organizations and society.”
Robert Franek, editor-in-chief at The Princeton Review, says, “We recommend Clark GSOM as one of the best at which to earn an MBA. We chose the 252 on-campus MBA program schools on this list based on our high regard for their academics and our assessment of institutional data collected. We also solicited — and greatly respect — the opinions of 18,400 students attending these schools, who reported their experiences on our 80-question student survey.”
The Princeton Review does not rank business schools hierarchically, instead focusing on topics that give applicants a broad range of information to determine which school might be the best fit for them. Among the ratings for which the Clark GSOM scored high marks were Academic Experience, Professor Accessibility, and Career Services.
GSOM offers both full- and part-time MBAs with concentrations in accounting, information management and business analytics, finance, general management, marketing, and social change and sustainability. The school also offers an M.S. in business analytics, a certificate in business analytics, and master’s programs in accounting and finance.
