Students at Clemson University will soon be able to earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree through a new online program.
The program, called MBA Online, is a customized approach to earning an advanced business degree that “allows students to consume their education in real time or on their own time,” said Greg Pickett, director of MBA programs and senior associate dean of the College of Business at Clemson.
Clemson University has offered its full-time and part-time MBA programs at the ONE Center in downtown Greenville since 2013. But the new online program, which is expected to launch in fall 2019, will open the door to those whose schedules don’t allow for classroom requirements, according to Pickett.
“We expect a healthy demand from students who want to pursue a Clemson MBA but are hindered by schedule restrictions. This innovative education model of the future has the potential to double our enrollment,” he said.
Jane Layton, MBA academic program director at Clemson, said the program was born out of need and a desire to meet students’ evolving learning preferences.
“The program we are building will enable working professionals, including those who are transferred after starting the program, to finish their degrees at Clemson from a location of their choice. And, for those whose schedules simply don’t allow for a structured class routine, this will enable them to learn whenever and wherever they want,” she said.
