MBA@UNC students are full members of the UNC community and receive the same dedicated and responsive support as on-campus students. From the moment someone requests information about our online MBA program, all the way through graduation and beyond, the MBA@UNC team is here to assist students in achieving their goals.
Guidance Before Starting Classes
Prospective students work one-on-one with a dedicated Admissions Counselor who guides them throughout the application process and answers any questions they may have about the program.
Admitted Student Meet and Greet
As soon as students are admitted to the program, they are invited to join an online Meet and Greet session to find out what life is like as a student. During this welcome session they explore the online campus, meet future classmates and connect with current students or alumni.
New Student Orientations
Students will have access to a series of orientation courses, delivered both online and on campus in Chapel Hill. These courses help acquaint students with the technology and introduce the university and business school. Learn more about our engaging orientation programs.
A dedicated Student Support Advisor will reach out to welcome each student to the program and discuss expectations and goals. The Advisor will answer questions and outline the onboarding process for incoming students to ensure they are prepared before classes begin.
Supporting Students During the Program
Our Student Support Advisors help students achieve success and remain in close contact throughout the first semester. They can help students manage their time, plan short- and long-term goals, decide which electives and concentrations to pursue and offer advice for planning courses around work and life schedules.
MBA@UNC's technical support team is available 24/7 via phone, e-mail or live chat to assist with any issues that may arise. Students can contact our team for assistance through the live online classroom, during exams or off-peak hours, and even while on the go with the mobile app.
Career Support and Kenan-Flagler Resources
Students will have access to all UNC library resources as well as the opportunity to participate in Kenan-Flagler conferences, networking events and speaker presentations. UNC Kenan-Flagler is globally recognized for our ability to prepare driven leaders for career-long success. Learn more about our unique, personalized career management services.
Global WeWork Access
MBA@UNC students will receive a WeWork Global Access membership during the program, which includes access to hundreds of workspaces worldwide, including locations in all major U.S. cities where the largest communities of MBA@UNC students reside. Through dedicated space, amenities and support staff, students can focus on their course work with fewer distractions, hold study groups with local students and attend events to build their professional network.
Upon graduation, MBA@UNC students are invited to join classmates and UNC faculty for commencement. Held twice per year in the fall and spring, MBA@UNC's graduation ceremony takes place on the University of North Carolina campus in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Learn more about graduation and hear from recent graduates.
MBA for Life: Resources After Graduation
After graduation, students become part of the community for life. MBA@UNC enables students to continue to progress in new careers or when taking on management roles.
Lifelong Access to Course Work
MBA@UNC alumni have lifelong access to their entire MBA curriculum so they can continue to apply their learning at work. For example, graduates may need a refresher on what they learned about portfolio management or may have to present to colleagues what they know about marketing or business strategy.
UNC Kenan-Flagler alumni will continue to have access to invaluable career development resources such as one-on-one career coaching, resume and interview guidance, personal assessment tools and new-skills training sessions.
For a nominal fee, MBA@UNC alumni have the opportunity to take a range of elective courses taught by UNC Kenan-Flagler faculty. The online courses enable students to interact with professionals around the world to broaden their skills and network. Alumni fully participate in the classes and receive a grade on their official UNC transcript.
