Part-Time Classes, Full-Time Innovation

The part-time Clemson MBAe is designed for working professionals who would like to innovate in their current position or create their own startup.

This option is ideal for individuals who would like to maintain their career while earning their MBA. Classes begin each June and the program lasts for two full years. Courses are taught in a unique, blended delivery that combines online coursework with two weekends per semester in person in Greenville. Research from the U.S. Department of Defense and the University of Tulsa shows that this combination of e-learning and face-to-face instruction is 26 percent more effective than either style of instruction alone (HR Magazine, August 2013).

Program Structure

Students enroll in a mixture of online and in-person classes. The in-person classes are scheduled for two weekends (Friday-Sunday) per semester, and the remainder of coursework is completed online.
