Cohort Programs

The Sonoco Department of International Business provides students at the Moore School with a high level of first-hand competence in conducting business across national boundaries and diverse cultures. Our international cohort programs for undergraduate students challenge their view of global business and cultural interactions through dynamic teaching and hands-on experience.

An Unparalleled, Global View of Business


Cohort Program Admissions

Admission to an international business cohort program at the Moore School is highly competitive and enrollment is limited. Due to the strenuous academic curriculum at our partner schools and at South Carolina, students selected for the program must have high quantitative skills and strong academic preparation from high school. Students who have completed or are currently enrolled in a college calculus course through AP/IB/Dual Enrollment course work will be given preference. Due to the four-year structure of cohort programs, we cannot accept transfer students or current South Carolina upperclassmen.

Application Process

  1. Apply to South Carolina through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. 
    All university admission deadlines must be observed for consideration.
  2. Complete the Moore School Cohort Application.
    1. Early deadline with early notification: Feb. 1
    2. Regular deadline with regular notification: March 1

In order to apply, you must be a fall or summer 2020 freshman applicant who selected a business major on the admissions application. The online application is composed of essay questions on subjects such as your interest in the program, career goals, global/cultural experiences, language ability, etc. You will be asked to upload a resume and a copy of your high school transcript.

Admission decisions are sent via email within 30 days of the application deadline. Students are encouraged to apply early for full consideration. Due to the limited number of students in each cohort, not all qualified students can be admitted.

To secure their place in the freshman class, admitted students must submit an enrollment deposit by May 1 to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
