What Graduates of UNC Business Essentials Have to Say about the Program
Graduates of the program report that UNC Business Essentials
helps them at work:
-“Coming from an engineering background, I didn't know much about the business aspect of things. The program really helped me fill in the blanks after I switched from a primarily technical role into operations. Bottom line, it significantly boosted my work performance.”
-"My experience with UNC Business Essentials was fantastic! The program was stimulating, easy to use, and up to date with real world examples. I have implemented skills learned from the program in both my personal and business life. I would recommend the program to anyone needing a business foundation or a refresher for anyone who already has one."
-"Being able to understand a spreadsheet of revenues and expenses and keep track of money going in and out is a skill set that is highly valued by employers and something that was essential to my success this past summer. I was asked to work on some audits with my summer internship and I felt equipped to do so because of the skills that I had gained from the Business Essentials program."
helps them in interviews:
-”UBE was a fundamental talking point in helping me secure a summer internship in management. For me, UBE is more than a line on my resume. It has given me the confidence, verbiage, knowledge, and practical skills that I need to be successful.”
-“While (UBE's) accessibility and freedom made the program very doable, the quality of the course content was superb, giving me the knowledge and confidence to successfully utilize a broad range of key business concepts in interviews and in practice.”
helps them round out their skill set:
-"This was a wonderful introductory program for me, someone who lacked any previous exposure to the teachings of business. I have a strictly science and public health background, and this provided me with more of the business know-how that I was looking to add to enhance my current career skill set. I feel much more conversant when it comes to the concepts of business, and feel as though I have a deeper understanding of the constructs of finance, accounting, marketing, etc..."
-“As a non-business major or minor, the opportunity and decision to intern for a large retail company was taking me a bit outside my comfort zone and knowledge base, but working through Business Essentials helped me gain a better perspective and business-minded outlook at work every day.”
