The University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School has announced a redesign of its evening and weekend Executive MBA programs with new features and greater convenience for working professionals.
For the 24-month Evening MBA program, classes will meet on campus one night a week rather than two nights, and will include a few additional evening sessions. This program also requires four immersion weekends. For the 20-month Weekend MBA program, classes will meet on campus one weekend every three weeks, instead of two weekends per month, and includes one immersion week.
Other program changes include:
- Modifying the schedule to reduce time away from work and travel to campus by using a blend of immersive on-campus courses and networking with technology-enabled modules
- Streamlining the calendar and course credits to enhance scheduling for students
- Reviewing and optimizing the curriculum in terms of required courses and their sequencing
- Increasing the focus on leadership and professional development
- Developing new electives and global immersions
Atul Nerkar, associate dean of EMBA Programs, notes that the restructuring better accommodates students'”…already busy work and family lives, without compromising the exceptional learning experience and networking they expect from the UNC EMBA Program.”
