As the sectors of our global society become increasingly intertwined, demand is surging for business professionals who understand the social, political and environmental forces that shape communities and businesses. Students in Clark's innovative programs learn to use modern technology and advanced analysis to creatively address environmental and development problems and promote social justice, whether working in a corporation, government agency, or nongovernmental organization in the U.S., or any other part of the world.

The MBA program offer two unique concentrations: Social Change and Sustainability, and two dual degree options: MBA/MA in Community Development and Planning, MBA/MS in Environmental Science and Policy. These programs allow students to combine their business studies with courses offered in Clark's renowned International Development, Community and Environment (IDCE) department that focus on topics including social entrepreneurship, environmental sustainability, community development and international development. Graduates are prepared to lead in a diverse range of fields, from microfinance and ethical investing to sustainable development and corporate social responsibility.

For students interested in more traditional business disciplines, MBA concentrations are also offered in Accounting, Expanded Accounting, Finance, Global Business, Management Information Systems, General Management, and Marketing. Two MS programs, one in Accounting the other in Finance, are also offered.
