Career & Leadership Services

Of all the universities I've attended, UNC is the most hands-on in its approach to helping students achieve the career goals they seek.

Customized, Consultative Approach

We recognize that the experienced working professionals pursuing their online MBA in our program have unique career ambitions. Whether you want to progress internally at your company, prepare to retire from active military service and enter the civilian working world, explore future career opportunities outside of your current industry, or found a company, MBA@UNC can actively help you achieve these goals.

MBA@UNC professionals work with you one-on-one to design the best individualized career management strategy for you, integrating high-caliber UNC Kenan-Flagler resources, consultative services and networking contacts to maximize the return on your career investment through the MBA@UNC.

The career management department took the time to really get to know me, understand my goals, passions and skill sets, and provided me with concrete action steps and advice. The result: I secured an amazing job. We talked using the MBA@UNC platform, and the ease of establishing a personal connection was no different than if we were sitting in a room together.

Company Engagement

In addition to many company networking opportunities via executive speakers at our Immersions, MBA@UNC offers live, Virtual Company Information Sessions hosted by executives and alumni from companies in a wide range of industries. Based off of the traditional “On-Campus Recruiting” Information Session concept, the Virtual Company Information Session gives employers direct access to MBA@UNC students, and educates interested students on the company, its culture, and its hiring needs. A Resume Book is generated after each Session, and is presented to the company’s recruiting team.

Lifelong Career Support

Our work together begins at orientation and continues throughout your career. Our team provides MBA@UNC graduates with career and leadership support throughout your lifetime. In addition, all MBA graduates from UNC Kenan-Flagler may return to take MBA courses throughout your lifetime – in-person or online – for a nominal fee.
