South Carolina's Francis Marion Redesigns MBA Program, Integrating Online Courses

Students will now have face-to-face classes 2 or 3 Saturdays per semester

South Carolina's Francis Marion University has re-designed its MBA program, which now features a mix of online and in-class learning.

The majority of the curriculum will now take place online, delivered through a mix of videos, taped lectures, and Blackboard forum interactions, according to reporting by SCNow. However, students will also meet for face-to-face courses, but only two or three Saturdays per semester.

In the program's previous incarnation, each class met two times per week.

With the new format, students who take two classes per semester can complete the MBA in four semesters. In the accelerated version of the program, students who take four classes per semester can complete the program in 15 months.

Francis Marion is accredited by AACSB International. Other AACSB accredited business schools in South Carolina that offer part-time and flexible MBA programs include the University of South Carolina's Moore School of Business, Clemson University, and Winthrop University.
