Graduate business programs grow in Greenville
GREENVILLE — Enrollment in Clemson University’s graduate business programs has doubled since moving to downtown Greenville in 2010.
The Master of Business Administration and Master of Professional Accountancy programs have seen increased enrollment in the past four years. In January, Clemson’s graduate business programs relocated to the new Greenville ONE building at the corner of Main and Washington streets.
“The move to the ONE Building provided the needed space to accommodate our student body of over 500 students and allow us to continue to grow,” said Greg Pickett, associate dean of the College of Business and Behavioral Science and director of the MBA program. ”The location is perfectly situated for engaging Greenville’s business community by offering innovative educational programs and services.”
Clemson’s MBA program has nearly 400 students and there are 60 Master of Professional Accountancy students. The new Greenville ONE space also home to the master’s degree programs in accounting, marketing, management and real estate development. Clemson’s Center for Corporate Learning, the Arthur M. Spiro Institute for Entrepreneurial Leadership and the Greenville branch of the Small Business Development Center also are located there.
Clemson occupies floors five-eight in the North Tower of ONE, a space that includes nine classrooms with cutting-edge technology, a 200-seat flat-floor auditorium, flexible meeting spaces for executive and continuing education, incubator space for Clemson entrepreneurs, a fifth-floor roof terrace overlooking Main Street and the “B” Hive (business hive)— a first for Greenville — an oval, flexible classroom/lab space designed to facilitate interactive group learning that was developed at Harvard Business School.
