Dual Degree MBA/MIB

Dual Degree MBA/MIB

The unique dual-degree MBA/MIB between Clemson University and the IÉSEG School of Management allows graduate students to earn complimentary business degrees from two distinct and highly regarded institutions located in two of the most vibrant international business destinations in the world.

Students spend 21 months - one year in Greenville, S.C., and one in Paris, France - studying with leading business faculty and graduate with two advanced degrees: a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from a leading U.S. institution and a Master of International Business (MIB) from one of the top business schools in France. All instruction is in English, although students will be encouraged to study French. Instructional opportunities will be provided while in the U.S. and France.

Throughout the program, students are immersed in exciting learning and business cultures, which prepares them for global careers upon graduation. Further, students are provided the opportunity to build social and business networks in both locations, enhancing their business reach and leadership potential. Students finish the program with a unique perspective and understanding of international finance, marketing, economics and management - from both European and American perspectives - giving them a competitive edge in the global marketplace.

About the IÉSEG MIB in Paris, France

Located in the largest business community in Europe - La Défense in Paris - the IÉSEG MIB program helps students develop multicultural competencies that lead to a systematic and global mindset. The IÉSEG MIB program provides a sound understanding of world culture and international business practices. Building on the foundation provided by the Clemson program, the MIB expands the student's capability to manage business within various international contexts. Students are offered an extensive portfolio of open electives that address topics such as international negotiation, cross-cultural management, sustainable development and global social responsibility.

To complete the curricula, there are events in which students can interact with business, political and community leaders, furthering their experience.

Dual-degree overview

  • Students experience an immersion in both North American and European perspectives on business.
  • All instruction is in English, although French language courses are available, and students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
  • During the first year, students study business principles at the Clemson University campus in Greenville, S.C., USA. During the second year, students study international business with an opportunity to pursue a focus area in Paris, France.
  • The dual degree is particularly well suited for students with a business undergraduate degree and at least two years of post-undergraduate work experience. Students with a non-business undergraduate degree or less than two years' work experience may be considered, but additional foundation courses will be required, as specified in the Clemson MBA curriculum.
  • The two degrees are awarded at the successful completion of the second year in Paris, France.
  • By studying business within these two locations, students truly get the best of both worlds: two internationally respected and complementary degrees, multicultural awareness and experience and a lifelong network of professional peers and mentors.
