The College of Charleston is introducing an accelerated Executive MBA program tailored for working professionals seeking to elevate their business careers.

Now accepting applications for January 2025, the College of Charleston’s EMBA program is the only one of its kind offered in South Carolina, the college said in a news release.

The program is designed to empower individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in executive roles, while also accommodating their demanding schedules, the news release stated. The program’s classes will be conducted in a hybrid format to provide flexibility without compromising academic rigor. The condensed duration of 18 months — compared to the traditional two-year full-time program — allows participants to expedite their journey toward a graduate business degree.

The curriculum is crafted to cover a comprehensive array of foundational business acumen, including leadership, strategic management and executive decision making, the release said. Emphasis is placed on the integration of real-world experience and case studies tailored to address executive-level challenges.

According to Fortune Magazine, people typically receive a $10,000-$15,000 annual salary increase after completing an EMBA. Research also shows that EMBA programs have a higher median return on investment than other advanced business degrees and are four times more profitable than a traditional MBA, the release stated.
