The Weekend MBA curriculum begins with core courses that form a common foundation for you and your peers. You will build your leadership and team skills as you complete projects with your study team. To maximize productivity, the Weekend MBA program blends in-person learning with asynchronous, online coursework — providing more time for meaningful discussion and shared perspective with faculty and your peers during class weekends.
During the final 10 months of the program, you will take 12 to 13 electives from 20 or more offered during weekends, evenings or online, including the option to participate in global opportunities such as the Global Entrepreneurship Lab. Electives are your chance to customize your academic program to suit your career objectives and interests. Select courses that will help you climb the corporate ladder, shift to a new career focus or build a business. Or choose an academic concentration to gain depth in one of four areas: finance, marketing, strategy and leadership, or strategy and entrepreneurship. Few top executive MBA programs offer more curriculum flexibility or elective options.
You can keep your MBA current by taking Executive MBA elective courses in Chapel Hill for a nominal fee. This benefit is offered throughout your career and many of our alumni use it to strengthen their skills in a particular area to prepare for a new role or career transition.
