Introduction

About The Graduate School

At Clarkson, innovation is impacting. Students who choose Clarkson for graduate and professional programs come here with purpose: to advance knowledge, to explore ideas that propel society, and to build meaningful careers. Through world-relevant curriculum and engagement with leaders in the industry, business, and education, you will be prepared to make sense of complex systems, forge connections across people and fields, and find creative solutions to some of today’s most vexing challenges. You will deepen your knowledge base to accelerate your ideas into great products and lead organizations that have an impact. Connections make the difference. The Clarkson alumni network is over 40,000 people strong and full of leaders who inspire impactful organizations, produce ideas that change the way people live and engage with the current student body in meaningful ways. Our deans and faculty consult regularly with their own advisory councils comprised of industry leaders, alumni employers, research partners, think-tank consortium members, and peers in academia. As an enrolled graduate student, you can tap into Clarkson’s Alumni Association programs and access our Career Center services to advance your professional development. Rigorous and personal. From Fulbright and National Science Foundation Scholars to highly credentialed working professionals and researchers collaborating with the thought leaders in the industry, the faculty at Clarkson bring their own experiences and networks into their teaching and advising. They can relate to the demands of life outside the classroom, whether you’re a working parent, a career striver, or a community service volunteer. You will get to know the faculty personally as class sizes are intentionally small across all modes of learning: onsite, online, full time and part-time. Worth it. Clarkson’s educational approach delivers results. According to the Brookings Institution, a Clarkson degree boosts graduates’ mid-career earnings by more than 40%. PayScale Inc. ranks Clarkson in the top 12 of Best Master’s Degree-Granting Programs by salary potential. And one in five Clarkson alumni is already a CEO, the owner of a company, or in a senior executive position.
