Executive Master of Business Administration


Invest in your career with South Carolina’s only Executive MBA.

Launching January 2025. 

Charleston’s Master of Business Administration degree is a top-ranked, nationally recognized program that fast-tracks MBA candidates in their respective careers.

Now, that opportunity is available for business and industry professionals looking to earn their graduate degree in a format that accommodates their work schedule.

The Charleston MBA is here to help you advance to the next level in your organization.

  • 18-Months — The EMBA program condenses a traditional two-year full-time, in-person MBA and offers courses in an accelerated, hybrid eighteen-month program.
  • Hybrid Format — In-person courses are offered during twelve weekend retreats and two week-long residencies. Courses are taught in synchronous and asynchronous formats. Hybrid coursework gives you the flexibility to earn your MBA in a format that accommodates you.
  • Cohort Based — All MBA candidates begin and conclude the program together. The team-formatted work encourages strengthening your professional network among other managerial and executive level colleagues with at least five years of professional experience.
  • All-Inclusive Tuition — In a time of rising tuition, the Charleston EMBA prides itself in affordability.  There is no cost difference between in-state and out-of-state residents. All EMBA candidates pay the same total rate of $57,500.

Join our first cohort in January 2025.

The future is what you make it. When the time comes, the Charleston EMBA will prepare you to be successful in that next executive role.
