  • One-Year MBA: 10 months
  • International MBA: 22 months

1Program fee is for the duration of the program and not an annual fee.
2The Academic Common Market (ACM): This program was established to help out-of-state students reduce the monetary investment needed for graduate studies. Under the ACM agreement, a non-resident student may pay in-state tuition, provided the institution they wish to attend is a member of the ACM and no comparable program is available within their state of legal residency. Of the member states of the ACM, some offer an International MBA program; thus, residents of those states would not be eligible for the reduced costs for out-of-state programs.

Refer to the table below for a representation of states supporting the International MBA program at the Moore School:

● Alabama ● Arkansas States marked with a "●" denote anticipating entities supporting the International MBA program at the Moore School. States listed in italics denote participation in the ACM, but currently do not support the International MBA program. 

This information is subject to change and it is managed by the ACM directly.
● Delaware ● Florida 
● Georgia ● Kentucky
● Louisiana    Maryland

   Tennessee ● Texas
● Virginia ● West Virginia


3University of South Carolina/Sister-State Tuition Benefit

This program was established through the sister-state agreement between the State of South Carolina and the following:

Aruba  -  State of Queensland, Australia  -  State of Brandenburg, Germany 

State of  Rhineland-Palatinate/Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany  -  State of Thuringen, Germany

Taiwan

Through this agreement — which is extended at will by the University of South Carolina— any International MBA candidate who is a citizen of these states would pay in-state tuition, significantly lowering the cost of the program. To qualify, applicants must be admitted to the International MBA program and must demonstrate citizenship with a valid passport.

4In addition to tuition and fees listed above, JD/International MBA students are also responsible for paying the School of Law tuition and fees. 

Special tuition rates exist for residents of states participating in the Academic Common Market (ACM) and citizens of Taiwan through a sister-state agreement.

All program and university fees are subject to change without notice upon mandate of the University Board of Trustees. Program fee does not include additional university fees (see Special Fees and Non-Recurring fees listed above ). Cost-of-living and travel expenses vary by individual and are not reflected in the above figures.
