Leaders of small to mid-sized companies across the Upstate and Lowcountry can learn proven best practices and contemporary business principles behind success by enrolling in Clemson University’s Spiro Sessions, a non-degree professional development program.

Through the Clemson College of Business Center for Corporate Learning, eight evening sessions will be held at the Lowcountry Graduate Center in North Charleston and Clemson University’s Greenville ONE location in downtown Greenville, beginning in March.

This professional development program is facilitated by the McNair Law Firm and draws on the experiences of business leaders and community professionals as panelists apply proven knowledge – and today’s technology – as living case studies to stimulate discussion among class participants.

“Participants in this program form a core network of entrepreneurs who want to make a high impact in our local business community,” said Nan Johnston, director of the Clemson University Center for Corporate Learning. “We are thrilled to be able to expand this opportunity into the Lowcountry, enabling anyone throughout our state to access either location within a two-hour drive.”

The Spiro Sessions, formerly known as Go Spiro, serve as a convenient alternative to formal graduate degree study. Participants who complete the eight-week sessions receive a Certificate of Completion from Clemson’s Spiro Institute for Entrepreneurial Leadership.
