Full-Time MBA in Entrepreneurship and Innovation

One Year of Transformation

One Year of Transformation

The full-time Clemson MBAe program is designed for individuals who want to launch a start-up, owners of existing small businesses seeking to expand their entrepreneurial knowledge and recent graduates who have decided not to pursue careers in corporate settings.

Full-time MBAe students move through all of the courses as a cohort, allowing them to form partnerships and learn from one another as well as from their instructors as they create solid business strategies. Classes begin each June and finish the following May. Graduates leave the program with the foundation of their start-up firmly in place, and many have successfully launched their companies prior to graduation.

Program Structure

Students attend classes full-time for one year. Most classes will meet Monday-Thursday. The program begins with orientation in late June and culminates with the EnterPrize awards the following June. Students finish coursework then and graduate at the end of the summer in August.

International Internships

Full-time MBAe students have the opportunity to complete an 8-week international internship with a start-up organization over the summer. Internship placements are customized for individual learning and career objectives, and include cultural activities, services and support for a seamless experience.
