The UNC Kenan-Flagler Weekend Executive MBA program is designed to give you the capacity and confidence to successfully lead complex organizations. A rigorous curriculum is at the heart of the program, with core courses and electives that will sharpen your technical skills while allowing you to work on the leadership skills that will benefit you—and your career—the most.
Gain experience using analytical models and tools that you will apply immediately on the job. Strengthen your self-confidence and learn to think like a C-level executive: distill information from data, interpret results and make sound decisions.
Learn to develop strategies to build sustainable teams and organizations that look beyond next quarter, next year and even the next generation. Some courses focus on functional areas, such as marketing or operations, while others expand your perspective of the whole organization within a global context.
Enhance your leadership skills through a full-circle process of learning, practice, feedback and reflection. Sharpen your communication skills and create a personal Professional Development Plan (PDP) to shape your leadership skills — and your career. Through courses, workshops and team projects, you’ll learn how to be a leader who can initiate change and drive business strategy.
Gain the strategic insight and relationship skills needed to lead great organizations. The increased knowledge and experience you'll acquire will foster greater confidence in your ability to understand diverse viewpoints, spearhead global initiatives and take on tough challenges.
Expanded business acumen and leadership abilities will serve you well throughout your career – and provide a competitive advantage to you and your employer. You'll find you can take what you learn in the program's relevant, rigorous curriculum straight to the workplace. Bring current work challenges to the classroom to gain insight from faculty and peers and learn from the challenges others face.
