UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Global OneMBA Schedule

Please note that UNC Kenan-Flagler exited the OneMBA consortium in fall 2018. For more details on its new U.S. partner, please see the press release.

Convenient once-a-month classes

The UNC OneMBA class of 2019 began with an orientation weekend in Chapel Hill during September 2017, followed by the first week-long global residency (U.S. residency). During this first week, students began coursework, got to know their UNC study team and met their globally-based OneMBA peers. 

Location and cohort experience

Students travel to Chapel Hill every 6-8 weeks for weekend class sessions that allow them to benefit from the in-person, shared experiential learning and networking opportunities our cohort-based executive MBA programs are valued for. Class sessions in Chapel Hill, NC are held at UNC's Rizzo Center, a facility specifically designed for executive residential education with state-of-the-art classrooms, multimedia technology and beautifully appointed hotel accommodations.

Four global residency weeks

Over the course of the 21-month program, students from each of the OneMBA partner schools come together for four week-long global residencies held on four continents, where they visit developed and emerging economies. Students participate in global executive MBA classes taught by local professors, visit regional and multinational companies, and meet local business and government leaders.

A typical global residency schedule may look like:

  • U.S. (Fall): Chapel Hill and Washington, D.C.
  • Latin America (Spring): Mexico City and São Paulo
  • Asia (Fall): Xiamen and a city in an emerging country, such as India
  • Europe (Spring): Rotterdam and a city in an emerging country, such as Poland
