The Charleston MBA is a one-year, full-time day MBA program that offers focuses in Finance, Hospitality Revenue Management, and Marketing. Charleston utilizes a case-based and applied theory model for its curriculum. The school year begins with a two-week introduction experience in which students learn the fundamentals of business, such as globalization, communication, leadership, and spreadsheet management. As part of students’ preparation for a global business career, they learn in cohort-based collaboration as used by leading organizations around the world. Core courses include classes in management, innovation, and global business.
At the end of their spring semester, MBA candidates embark on a required international trip, in which students travel abroad and visit with major companies. Students receive advice and learn from industry professionals’ first-hand experiences on MBA Fridays.
Charleston has never made the Poets&Quants MBA ranking. However, it has made its way onto this year’s U.S. News ranking of MBA programs, coming in at 96th. It’s also been ranked 91st on Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2020 U.S. B-school rankings.
