The MBA@UNC curriculum is designed and delivered by UNC Kenan-Flagler’s world-class research and teaching faculty. Courses prepare students to be exceptional leaders with the ability to effectively analyze problems, think strategically and build strong global organizations.

MBA@UNC requires students to complete 62 credit hours. Students generally take two classes per quarter, in order to complete the program in 24 months. However, to allow for maximum flexibility, students can take classes full or part-time to earn a degree in as little as 18 or as many as 36 months, depending on their chosen course sequence.

Our curriculum consists of core courses designed to build foundational business knowledge, as well as a number of elective courses that allow students to tailor their education to their own unique career goals. MBA@UNC students also have the opportunity to take credit-bearing elective coursework from other online graduate programs delivered by several top-tier colleges and universities.

Following graduation, all UNC Kenan-Flagler alumni may continue to register for courses for a nominal course fee. This unique benefit allows alumni to continually refresh their knowledge and skills and take new electives that are developed each year.
