Historically Black Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina, has established its first graduate program of study: a Master of Business Administration graduate program in the Tyron Adam Burroughs School of Business and Entrepreneurship. The new program’s first cohort of students will begin their studies on July 1.
“The goal of the MBA program at Benedict College is to align critical thinking and practical application to develop professionals who are able to strategically position and lead an organization or private business,” said Dr. Roslyn Clark Artis, president of Benedict College.
The MBA program will offer three concentrations; general business, management, and supply chain management. Each concentration will prepare students for successful positions in those fields upon graduation.
“We are excited to launch our first graduate program of study,” said Dr. Janeen Witty, vice president of academic affairs. “It is our goal to support new and seasoned professionals in their pursuits to excel in their respective industries, as well as to meet the demands of our workforce in the city, state, and region. We are confident that the Benedict College MBA program will accomplish this goal.”
