Clark University MBA Program


PCG fully supports this 2-3 year part-time MBA program. This is a lock-step program and upon a current program's completion and sufficient consulting staff interest, PCG may choose to begin another cohort. Approximately 25 students are accepted into each cohort and only one cohort is supported at a time. Application to the program is subject to Management approval and consulting staff are given priority. A two-year post-graduate employment commitment is required of all employees who participate in the Clark MBA program in order to eliminate any tuition repayment obligation.

Clark University is a teaching and research institution founded in 1887. Clark is the oldest graduate institution in the United States. Clark is one of only three New England universities, with Harvard and Yale, to be a founding member of the prestigious Association of American Universities.

In partnership with Clark University, PCG offers an on-site MBA Program. In working with the faculty from the Graduate School of Management (GSOM) at Clark, we have designed a curriculum, which focuses on 'applied' skill building and course content related to health care, government and E-commerce. In order to remain competitive in the consulting industry, it is clear that our staff need a solid knowledge base in these areas. Through this partnership, PCG provides an excellent learning experience which recognizes the need to balance work and career development in a flexible, collegial and time-efficient manner.
