As an MBA@UNC student, you will be a full member of the UNC community and receive the same dedicated and responsive support as on-campus students. From the moment you first request information about our online MBA program all the way through graduation and beyond, the MBA@UNC team is here to assist you in achieving your goals.
Guidance Before You Start Classes
Admitted Student Meet and Greet
As soon as you are admitted to the program, you will be invited to join an online Admitted Student Meet and Greet session hosted by program leadership. During this welcome session you will have the chance to explore the online campus, meet your future classmates and connect with current students or alumni to find out what life is like as a student.
Your dedicated Student Support Advisor will reach out to you to welcome you to the program and discuss your expectations and goals. Your Advisor will answer any questions you may have at this point and outline the onboarding process for incoming students to ensure that you are prepared before classes begin.
Guided Success Planning
Your Student Support Advisor is trained to help you achieve success and will remain in close contact throughout your first semester. You will have access to an optional assessment to identify your strengths, prepare for challenges and develop strategies to stay focused on academic success. Your Student Support Advisor can also help you manage your time, plan your short- and long-term goals, and set up strong support systems that will help you throughout your program.
You will have access to a series of orientation courses delivered both online and on campus in Chapel Hill. These courses help you get acquainted with the technology and introduce you to the university and business school. Learn more about our engaging orientation programs.
You will have access to all UNC library resources, and you will have the opportunity to participate in Kenan-Flagler conferences, networking events and speaker presentations.
Your Student Support Advisor can help you plan out your scheduled course of study, decide which electives and concentrations to pursue based on your interests, and offer advice for planning your courses around your work and life schedules.
WeWork Global Access Membership
Starting July 1, MBA@UNC students will receive a WeWork Global Access Membership during their program, which includes access to more than 240 global workspaces, including 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.
MBA@UNC's technical support team is available 24/7 via phone, e-mail or live chat to assist you with any issues that may arise. You can contact our team for assistance through the live online classroom, during exams or off-peak hours, and even while you're on the go with the mobile app.
As a UNC Kenan-Flagler alum, you will 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.
