Early Start MBA


The Early Start M.B.A. Admissions Standards

The College of Business Administration offers an early start to its M.B.A. program for qualified undergraduate students. Placement in this program is limited to outstanding Clarion University undergraduate students who have distinguished themselves in their B.S.B.A. degree program.

To be admitted, students must have met all M.B.A. admission requirements by the end of the first semester of their senior year and have the approval of the dean of the College of Business Administration. Accepted students are normally permitted to take up to six credits of M.B.A. course work for graduate credit during the last semester of their senior year.

Students will be allowed to continue in the M.B.A. program beyond the six credits of graduate course work upon completion of their B.S.B.A. degrees.
