UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Full-Time MBA Admissions

Hallmarks of Learning & Collaboration

A rigorous and flexible curriculum. Opportunities to put what you’ve learned into practice before you graduate. The most comprehensive leadership program of any business school.  A global focus, in theory and practice, leveraging the perspectives of a diverse, international faculty and student body, and offering unique opportunities to engage around the world.

These are hallmarks of the two-year MBA Program at UNC Kenan-Flagler, where students learn and collaborate in a team-based culture that stems from our core values. Our professors – who excel at both teaching and research – share an unparalleled dedication to students. The result is that our graduates are prepared to deliver results and excel in a global environment.

While all leading business schools impart core knowledge, our students come away with something more: The courage to do what’s right and the knowledge to make it happen.

That’s the UNC Kenan-Flagler difference.
