UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Home, Work and School Balance

You're probably wondering, "How can I possibly balance home, work and an MBA, too?" You should consult the experts. Our students.

An MBA that fits your life

As an established business professional, taking time away from work to pursue an MBA full time can disrupt the momentum you’ve already set in motion. And frankly, forfeiting earnings for two years is a daunting proposition to many.

Thee MBA program options for working professionals

That’s why UNC created three MBA programs for working professionals. You can choose the format that best supports your lifestyle and career goals. The Weekend MBA and Evening MBA programs are executive MBA options that allow you to benefit from deep, in-person networking and classroom discussions, and a customized curriculum through elective courses or a concentration; MBA@UNC is an online MBA program that allows students to earn their MBA from anywhere in the world.

These options give you more flexibility to acquire the skills and experiences to fulfill your career objectives while still earning the renowned UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA. Whether you're looking for a step up in your current organization or a step into a new industry, whether you need classes that meet during the week, on weekends or online, you can find the program that’s right for you.

Balancing home life

Most of our executive MBA students have partners and children at home. They will tell you that family support is critical. Contact us, and we’ll arrange for you to talk with a student who has work or family responsibilities similar to yours. They will share how they make it work. We encourage you to bring your partner to an information session to learn more.

Balancing school life

To make your life easier, the executive MBA staff takes care of the details behind the scenes, from pulling together your course materials to booking your rooms for overnight stays. You will find us responsive, accessible and here to support your success in any way we can.
