Driven to inspire
When seeking to deepen your business skills, there’s nothing more valuable than having a great example to follow. UNC professors are some of the most respected minds in business. They are world-class researchers, able to offer a unique combination of academic expertise and rich marketplace experience.
UNC Kenan-Flagler professors have won numerous accolades in research and industry. Performance inside the classroom is just as important. Bloomberg Businessweek recently awarded UNC faculty a grade "A" for both teaching and curriculum. Poets & Quants, a leading business school resource explained this performance in detail:
At Darden, Dartmouth, Cornell and UNC, it is a well-practiced art. There are precious few teaching failures at these business schools. Those academic cultures put tremendous peer pressure on professors to perform exceptionally well in class. The schools hire, promote and tenure on the basis of teaching. They believe that teaching is as important as research. Senior professors routinely mentor their younger counterparts on the best ways to engage a class. Student evaluations of teachers are taken seriously and used by professors to improve their classroom performance. Rewards for outstanding teaching are given prominence and importance in the school’s culture.
UNC’s professors bring real-world experience to the classroom. Most consult throughout the year with multinational corporations, allowing them to stay on top of current global business trends and cultural issues affecting business today.
Discussions that energize
Professors often use real-world business cases as catalysts for relevant, engaging discussions that draw insights from every class participant, creating a learning environment that’s energizing and inspiring.
Teamwork and leadership
Every UNC MBA classroom, whether on campus, online or across the globe, provides a forum that students leverage to solve on-the-job challenges through the insight they gain from faculty and peers. The faculty design class projects that require students to exercise new knowledge along with teaming and leadership skills.
Available to help
Faculty members are accessible outside of class to talk about specific work challenges and offer further guidance. They will be instrumental in helping you develop your career and network.
