Part-Time Corporate MBA

An MBA that Fits Your Lifestyle

An MBA that Fits Your Lifestyle

Work is going great and you don't want to leave, but you know an MBA can help you get ahead.

The part-time corporate MBA is tailor-made for you. Classes are held in the evenings in downtown Greenville, SC, an easy commute after work. Take as many or as few classes per semester as your schedule allows. Most part-time students graduate after 2.5 years – but it is possible to complete the coursework faster. Schedule an appointment with one of our admissions professionals for a detailed outline based on your background and time availability.

Part-time MBA students enroll in fewer than 9 hours each semester. Students are welcome to take classes at any time they're offered, although many students choose to take classes only in the evenings. Evening classes meet once a week, Monday-Thursday starting at 6 PM.


The Clemson MBA Corporate curriculum consists of 5 Foundation Courses (13 credit hours), 11 Core Courses (27 credit hours), and 3 Elective Courses (9 credit hours), for a total of 49 course credit hours. View detailed curriculum (PDF).
