One thing I loved about UNC's Weekend MBA program was the culture; the sense of camaraderie and dedication to success shared among my classmates, the professors, and the staff. The program was very rigorous and challenging, but was never cutthroat. That's the Carolina way: doing your individual best while working and learning together in one of the nicest places on earth, Chapel Hill.
