Student Voices: Lessons Learned from MBA@UNC (Part One)

The other day it dawned on me that I am more than halfway through the MBA@UNC program. With this realization, I mostly felt relief that I have managed to make it this far, but I also felt a sense of nostalgia for the unfettered optimism and enthusiasm with which I began my studies.

The Kenan-Flagler Way: Q&A with UNC Kenan-Flagler grads

Not too long ago, UNC Kenan-Flagler ran a video competition called MTV@UNC. We asked full-time MBA students participating in a leadership immersion to create music videos that best represented their time at the school.

We posted final videos on our Facebook page, where our fans could vote for their favorites. After a week of voting, the video titled “The Kenan-Flagler Way” (seen below) won the competition.

Studying for the GMAT: When, Why, and How

MBA Scholarships for Under-represented Minorities

We consider diversity to be one of Kenan-Flagler’s greatest assets. We actively recruit talented individuals from all ethnic groups and support a variety of organizations and activities that promote the representation of minorities in MBA programs.

All MBA@UNC applicants who have an exemplary record of achievement are eligible for consideration for MBA@UNC Fellowships. In addition, applicants to the full-time MBA program are eligible for UNC Kenan-Flagler fellowships that cover full or partial tuition.

The MBA@UNC Advantage: A Genuine Kenan-Flagler Experience

MBA@UNC has made every effort to ensure that nothing is lost in the online format; the program requires students to meet with their professor and 10 to 15 of their classmates in a virtual classroom. Just as they do in a physical classroom, UNC professors lead a discussion of the problems or cases relating to the latest lecture. Though they are virtual rooms, classes feel more like sitting in a circle with your professor in the quad, where everyone is visible and expected to participate.

A Skeptic Changes his Mind about Online Education

When we launched our program last year, we knew we were going to transform online education. Our program’s face-to-face learning platform was unlike that of any other online MBA program. The support and enthusiasm we received from UNC’s renowned faculty was unprecedented. And the excitement of our first enrolled students assured us that MBA@UNC had a bright future.
