Analytic Skills Workshop
The ASW summer program is a chance for
you to participate in a business school classroom with your American classmates. In addition to getting a practice run at some of the core courses you'll take as a student, you'll hear idiomatic English and ease into the MBA experience at a more
relaxed pace. You will have the opportunity to meet the Career Management Team and get prepared early for the job search and interview process. Arriving early gives you a chance to establish yourself, find a place to live, and get to know Chapel Hill and your new surroundings. It is a great way to start making new friends and forming a
network of colleagues prior to the start of classes..
