Return on Investment

Regardless of which type of MBA program you choose, we believe you’ll find our tuition rates hard to beat. We challenge you to compare other AACSB International accredited MBA programs and online MBA programs to ours. You’ll find out why it was rated a top 30 Best Buy.

The ranking was based on factors that included the cost of tuition and the AACSB International accreditation. No other state supported or state-related M.B.A. program in Pennsylvania even broke through the top 50 programs.

For those students interested in obtaining CPA licensure we offer a five-year course of study to do so. This course of study requires completion of the four-year B.S. in accounting along with the MBA (one additional year). 

The MBA to CPA program enables undergraduate accounting students to fulfill the 150-credit hour requirement for CPA licensure in Pennsylvania. This flexibility provides Clarion students with the option of a four-year degree or a five-year undergraduate/graduate course of study.
