UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School


Prepare for success

The MBA curriculum is rigorous, and many students find it helpful to start studying before the program begins. Many incoming students will take time to brush up on statistics, accounting, microeconomics and Excel. Not only is this beneficial for the classroom experience, but it also helps students establish good study habits.

Check your knowledge

On your first day of class, you will be expected to have a basic knowledge of probability and statistics, microeconomics, corporate financial accounting, and Microsoft Excel.

We strongly recommend that you download and take the self-evaluation tests in probability and statistics, financial accounting, and microeconomics. These tests will help determine your quantitative readiness for the MBA program. Also review the checklist for gaps in your knowledge.

Online MBA Math Review

All enrolled students will receive access to MBAMath.com prior to starting the program.  MBA Math is an online training tool which prepares you for your MBA classes with an overview of Excel, Finance, Economics, Statistics and Accounting.  Each section has a pre\post quiz, overview lectures and drill exercises to test your knowledge of the material covered.  Success in your upcoming courses will depend on completing sections which you are unfamiliar with prior to you beginning your MBA program. The professors for each course will assume you have mastered this introduction material so they will not review this.
