Admissions Overview

MBA@UNC offers professionals the ability to start classes four times per year (January, April, July and October). In addition to having a final application deadline, each start date has a priority application deadline that entitles you to have your application fee waived. To receive the waiver, you must contact your Admissions Counselor before submitting your application.

We accept applications on a rolling admissions schedule, and you may submit your application up to four cohorts in advance. Rolling admissions gives you the opportunity to submit your application for any cohort before the final deadline and receive your admissions decision shortly thereafter. We recommend that you submit your completed application as soon as possible.

Please refer to the following deadlines when submitting your application:
