The Entrepreneurship concentration fosters a culture of entrepreneurship at UNC. As an MBA enrichment concentration, our focus is not on job placement. Instead, our goal is to establish the leading U.S. business school-based entrepreneurship program that prepares you to build an entrepreneurial mindset and successfully transition to entrepreneurship through the course of your career.
All entrepreneurship courses at UNC Kenan-Flagler are electives, allowing you to immerse yourself in a tailored curriculum. A factor that sets our offerings apart is that the curriculum is complemented with innovative co-curricular offerings that enrich your learning experience.
You have a variety of career paths to choose from. You might launch a startup or join an existing one.
