Early Action

Our first cycle (deadline October 15, 2018 ) is the Early Action round. Early Action is an option if you are certain you’ll attend UNC Kenan-Flagler if admitted. Early Action applicants learn their decision by December 7, 2018 .

If you’re admitted in the Early Action cycle, you must submit a $3,000 non-refundable enrollment deposit by January 4, 2019 , to secure a space in the class (the regular deadline enrollment deposit is $1,500). Do not apply for Early Action if you’re not prepared to commit immediately to attending UNC Kenan-Flagler.


Admission to the UNC Kenan-Flagler full-time MBA program requires the completion of our online application.

The application consists of the following components; additional details are available within the application itself and in our FAQs.
