Beginning in October, once-a-month classes will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Friday classes start at 9:30 a.m., so most students fly or drive in Friday morning. Sunday classes end at 3 p.m., so you will travel home that evening. In addition to classes, most students spend 12 to 20 hours a week on individual study or team meetings.
Outstanding executive conference facilities
Approximately half of UNC OneMBA classes are held at Lansdowne Conference Center located near Washington, D.C. Lansdowne is only eight miles from the Dulles International Airport (IAD), which offers direct flights to most major cities.
The other half of classes are held at UNC's Paul J. Rizzo Conference Center, located a short drive from the main campus. This facility is designed for executive residential education with tiered classrooms, multimedia technology and hotel-quality accommodations. Rizzo offers full recreational facilities, including a weight and aerobic room.

You will join students from all the OneMBA partner schools for four weeklong global residencies held on four continents, where you will visit developed and emerging economies.
