“It’s amazing to know we are part of history, so to speak, but also that we’re having such a wide influence.”
I have had the fortunate opportunity to have two degrees and now a third, from this institution.

The MBA@UNC program allows me to be in two places at once. It allows me to maintain my residency and a great job in Winston-Salem, and also get a great experience and great education with UNC-Chapel Hill professors.
