Career goals

I have experience with marketing and engineering, so I want to learn more about finance. I also want to do a consulting job afterward, so the consulting concentration is a natural choice for me.

Why I chose UNC

  • Direct contact with schools is sometimes difficult for international students, but not at UNC. Whether I contacted alumni, admissions officers, or faculty at UNC, they all responded to me quickly and precisely.
  • I also learned from other Chinese students that there is a good cooperative and collaborative environment here.

Student life

  • Wine Club
  • Running Club
  • Marketing Club
  • General Management Club
  • Consulting Club
  • Finance Club

I joined a number of clubs to benefit from the diversity here. It's taken some time, but I feel it is worth it.

My experience of the MBA program at UNC

The Career Management Center helps international students a lot in terms of one-on-one consulting and extra efforts to help them really get accustomed to U.S. culture. The faculty applies their cutting-edge knowledge in the classroom. We learn a lot from the real-world experience of cases. The UNC Kenan-Flagler network We have great access to alumni, we can search for contacts in the alumni career network, and we have social networking. Whenever I reach out to one of the alumni, they respond to me overnight. They really want to help you to do the best you can.
