Student Voices: MBA in the Palm of My Hand

A number of years ago, while working in sales at an investment bank, I tried taking a business course at NYU. I was unexpectedly sent to work in Hong Kong a month into the semester. Too late to drop the course, I missed several classes and the midterm – all of that time and money went down the drain. I did not wanting to interrupt my career with a full-time program, so I put aside my business school aspirations – until MBA@UNC came along.

Speaking with the admissions counselors, the MBA@UNC felt like a good fit, but I had a lot of unanswered questions: Will I make substantial relationships with my classmates? Will an on-line classroom engage me intellectually? Should I just wait a year and let UNC work out the kinks?

Even with all these questions, I was intrigued. I thought, “This will be like a start-up, I’ve always wanted to work at a start-up.” So that pushed me over the edge – and I entered the program with “skeptical optimism..
