EMBA Leadership Team
Executive MBA students and alumni rated the UNC EMBA staff No. 1 in the world in Student Support
The UNC Executive MBA Programs are led by faculty and professional staff whose primary job is to ensure your success. The EMBA staff works to take care of the details behind the scenes, from pulling together your textbooks to booking your rooms for overnight stays. The faculty and professional leadership are responsive to your needs and easily accessible during and outside class time.
Perhaps that’s why, based on a recent graduate survey, Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranked UNC No. 1 among EMBA programs worldwide in student support – and gave UNC “A” grades in Teaching and Support.
