It has also helped you build essential skills, like collaboration, discipline, and organization, that are valued in the business world. In the Full-Time MBA Program at UNC Kenan-Flagler, you can refine these skills and take your leadership to the next level as you prepare to join the ranks of high-impact business professionals.
