University of South Carolina Aiken Launches New Part-Time MBA

Program designed for students without a background in business

The University of South Carolina Aiken's School of Business Administration (USC Aiken) has announced that it will launch a part-time MBA program in the fall.

The new MBA is designed for students who do not have an undergraduate degree in business. Instead, the program is specifically aimed at students with undergraduate degrees in one of the STEM fields – science, technology, engineering, or mathematics – as well as those from liberal arts fields; although candidates from other fields besides business are welcome to apply.

The program will be delivered through evening classes on the school's campus in Aiken. Students can start in either the spring or fall semester. Two course options are available: one aimed at liberal arts majors, and another for STEM majors or others with strong quantitative skills. 

USC Aiken is accredited by AACSB International.

With the new program, the school adds to the growing number of part-time MBA options offered by AACSB-accredited business schools in South Carolina. Other options range from the Businessweek-ranked Professional MBA program from University of South Carolina's Darla Moore School of Business, to the flexible MBA programs offered by Coastal Carolina University and Francis Marion University.

USC Aiken is now accepting applications for its new MBA program. To apply for the program, candidates should have a bachelor's degree as well as a GMAT score of at least 450 (or the GRE equivalent); although GMAT waivers, while not automatic, are available for some students who have advanced degrees or a significant amount of managerial experience.

The school cautions that since this is a part-time program, international students would not be eligible for a student visa, although permanent residents are welcome to apply.

The application deadline for the program's fall start is July 1st, 2015.
