Business education at Clemson now in a school of its own

Business education at Clemson now in a school of its own
By: Andrew Moore,

As of Friday, Clemson University’s College of Business will stand on its own, a move that Dean Bobby McCormick said will enhance the school’s national reputation.

Clemson is already ranked 31st nationally in the 2016 Business First ranking. The ranking, now in its second year, considers criteria such as selectivity, advancement, resources, cost and diversity, along with the latest college rankings by Forbes, Kiplinger’s and U.S. News & World Report.

The new College of Business is part of the university’s realignment of its academic programs into seven colleges. The restructuring is a key part of Clemson Forward, the university’s long-range strategic plan.

“Clemson means business more than ever,” McCormick said in a release. “The restructuring is a clear message of commitment to business education being critical to the university’s future by senior leadership and our trustees.”

Up until Friday, the College of Business included behavioral sciences. Psychology, sociology, anthropology and political science will now be under the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences.

The five other colleges are the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences; the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities; the College of Education; the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences; and the College of Science.

In addition to the restructuring, plans include a new building for business education in the center of Clemson’s campus.

The building, which will create what college leaders call a “flexible think tank,” will have 160,000 square feet of space to accommodate growth, according to preliminary plans. The building, which is twice the size of Sirrine Hall, would foster partnership between academics and industry and provide opportunities for cutting-edge and applied research.

The tentative completion is during the 2019–2020 school year. State appropriations, private gifts and institutional bonds would fund the construction.

Like the new Sirrine Hall but not at its intended location. Will take away from Bowman Field and Tilghman Hall. I am all for progress but could've found a different location for the new Sirrine Hall.
