On-Campus Admissions Events

Each year the MBA Admissions office hosts on-campus events for prospective full-time MBA students. Some of these preview events, like our Inside UNC Kenan-Flagler: Minority Preview Weekend and Women's Workshop, involve a selection process in order to attend. Others are open to the public, like our Open Houses and MBA Cafes. The conditions of each event are posted on our calendar with the specific event details. In addition, we offer a Campus Visit Program throughout the academic year on select Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.

MBA Fairs and Forums

UNC Kenan-Flagler staff travel to cities around the world to meet prospective students at multi-school events. Look for us at Inside the MBA receptions, Forte Forums and The Consortium MAPS (MBA Application Preparation Seminars). Local alumni often join these events as well. Check our events calendar above to confirm which events we will attend and come out to meet us in a city near you.

UNC Kenan-Flagler Receptions

We offer UNC Kenan-Flagler receptions/information sessions for prospective students in many cities around the world. These receptions provide the opportunity to learn more about the MBA program and to interact with UNC Kenan-Flagler staff, local alumni and sometimes current students. Be sure to check the events calendar above regularly and sign up for an account so we can let you know about new opportunities in your area.

Experience Weekend for Admitted Students

All students admitted in Rounds 1-3 will receive a special invitation to our on-campus Experience Weekend, held on campus in early April (please check our events calendar above for this year's dates). Although invitations are only extended to those with an admission offer, we suggest candidates mark their calendars now to hold the dates should an offer be received. We will also have receptions for admitted students in various global locations.

Webinars

We offer live webinars led by one or more of our Admissions Directors or Career Management Directors. Topics can vary year-to-year. All that is needed to participate is a computer with internet access. Video recordings of these webinars are posted on our transcripts page after the event.

MBA Cafe Coffee Chats

Hosted in various cities worldwide, our coffee chats are informal meetups hosted by current students during a school holiday. Our ambassadors select a convenient location (such as a coffee shop) and set a two-hour time period for these casual, drop-in chats. You are invited to go meet them, grab a beverage and talk face to face with the students about what makes UNC Kenan-Flagler such a special place. If you are registered with us, we will email you a notification if a coffee chat is planned for your area. Check the events calendar above frequently for updated events.
