Bloomberg Businessweek's Jeniece Pettitt and Rachel Crane hit Chapel Hill to see what's so special about North Carolina's Kenan-Flagler Business School.

About Kenan-Flagler Business School

What Recent Grads Say See All 10 Comments >

It is very hard to point to one specific thing I valued most about my MBA program. I think what makes UNC unique is its competencies in several key areas. It has a great combination of exceptional students, faculty and facilities. Additionally, the career services and career opportunities that the program provided greatly exceeded my expectations. I was thoroughly impressed by the access to employers and job opportunities that I received. Finally, I believe the network that I was able to develop with current students and alumni will be an instrumental part of my career success after I leave UNC Kenan-Flagler.
