Academic Experience

The Weekend Executive MBA program places you into a small cohort of accomplished, driven and diverse professionals from a wide range of industries. Working together under the guidance of UNC Kenan-Flagler’s accomplished faculty, you’ll develop and trial solutions to the real business problems you and your cohort face in your current jobs. Along the way you’ll build deep relationships, hone essential leadership skills, learn new ways of thinking and expand your understanding of what it takes to be your best.

Contribute to a unique, collaborative MBA learning culture.


Applied learning and teamwork

The UNC Kenan-Flagler Executive MBA classroom functions as a forum where you work with your cohort and faculty to solve on-the-job challenges. Through class projects that are often rooted in current workplace projects and challenges, you'll practice the application of theory and new knowledge, alongside teamwork and leadership skills.

Study Teams

Study teams

Your study team is thoughtfully comprised of peers from different industries, roles and cultural backgrounds, so you'll benefit from diverse perspectives and real-world team dynamics. Study teams are often cited by students as one of the attributes that really sets our cohort-based Executive MBA program apart.



You'll complete online coursework and assignments between class weekends to maximize your productivity and increase the depth of discussion possible during in-person classes. Additionally, students stay connected, and productive, between class weekends via a variety of technology tools and communication platforms like Zoom and WhatsApp.
