|2The Academic Common Market: 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

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
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.
Special tuition rates exist for residents of states participating in the Academic Common Market 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.
