Pursue the #1 MBA for job placement.
The College of Charleston has designed a program that instills more than just business knowledge; it also equips you with soft skills often overlooked by other MBA programs — we’re talking public speaking, leadership, self-awareness, teamwork and much more. You’ll also be matched with an executive mentor who will pass on years of experience — and valuable connections — to aid you in your career development. And, you will work one-on-one with a professional coach to help you clarify your future ambitions, assess your strengths and weaknesses and create a personalized action plan to improve your professional capabilities in ways that matter most. We call this approach the Charleston Way. And it works. Just like our graduates.
Gain a superior business education in just one year.
Sure, Charleston has palmetto trees, great food and sandy beaches. But what really gives the city an edge is the number of current and former C-level executives who call Charleston home. Not to mention, the region is booming economically with Fortune 500 companies playing a major role in driving its vibrant and diverse business community. This dynamism is a big reason our graduates find jobs.
Find yourself in the city of opportunity.
Make Your MBA Unique
While our MBA curriculum is developed to provide students with a well-rounded business education, you’ll also have the opportunity to choose one of three focus areas for your elective courses. This allows you to hone industry-specific skills that align with your career goals.
