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.
From my experience, the focus on building leadership skills to manage large teams, dynamics of managing cross functional teams in matrix organizations and building self awareness are not emphasized very much. Also, career services and individual career development for EMBAs at Kenan Flagler is not up to the mark for mid-career professionals. EMBA recruitment is mixed with full-time MBA recruitment.
UNC did a terrific job connecting the EMBA program to the overall college community/experience. I also felt the UNC faculty was world-class, both in knowledge as well as their ability to truly share/teach.
Entrepreneurship class was exceptional, but too much was crammed into a short period of time. They need to make it a longer class.
UNC provided an amazing sense of community in the classroom and out. Students were encouraged to work together, not against each other. I feel like the facilities, administration, and faculty could not be beat.
The career development model should be more tailored to the individuals within the program and not the full time MBA recruiting efforts
The price was low - $100k and the students were from extremely diverse backgrounds. I'm very proud to say that I graduated from the Kenan-Flagler Business School.
While teamwork was stressed, I think it could be stressed and pushed more. Much of the teamwork, didn't truly require us to work together as a team, rather work individually and compare as team.
The most unique aspect of the program at UNC-CH is the team environment, which spans more than just the organized team projects and structured teams. Students are very open and feel they have a stake in the success of their fellow classmates. In addition to the fantastic support from fellow students, the staff is extremely accommodating and supportive.
I think more of the tactical teaching could be provided in online recorded lectures so that class time could be spent focusing on discussion and deeper reflection. I had a few classes which provided recorded presentations of difficult-to-digest material so students could review at their own pace. This was extremely helpful. Since UNC was in the middle of launching MBA@UNC (online MBA program), I expect nearly all business school classes (especially quantitative ones) to have this feature.
