Analytical Skills Workshop
Analytical savvy and a working knowledge of microeconomics, probability and statistics, finance, and financial accounting have become essential skills for those who wish to succeed in the business world. The same is true for students pursuing an MBA in a high-caliber program.
Our optional Analytical Skills Workshop (ASW) gives you the opportunity to refresh your skills and bolster your knowledge of these concepts in an intensive, three-week session.
The ASW curriculum includes:
- Academic courses in Analytical Tools (Statistics), Financial Accounting, and Finance. You’ll need to take at least two of these, though most students complete all three. These courses meet daily.
- Workshops on microeconomics, case analysis, presentation skills, Excel and PowerPoint. You’ll also be exposed to the systems and communication platforms our MBA students use. Workshops are offered periodically throughout ASW.
- Career workshops that increase your knowledge of career opportunities in areas of interest, develop your understanding of what employers are seeking, and offer early access to your first career coaching session.
Outside of the classroom, ASW will provide you opportunities to network and socialize with your classmates prior to Orientation and time to comfortably transition to the Chapel Hill community before classes start in August.
Analytical Skills Workshop is typically held in July, just prior to orientation. This year’s workshop is scheduled for July 12 – July 28, 2021 (dates are subject to change, and information will be sent by email to all admitted students).
