|Kenan-Flagler opens MBA@UNC online courses to MBA alumni|
|Monday, July 02, 2012|
The online program MBA@UNC will now be open to master of business administration alumni of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Kenan-Flagler Business School.
Launched in July 2011, MBA@UNC is designed for working professionals who want to earn their MBA from a top-ranked business school and value the flexibility of an online program.
“As we celebrate the first year of MBA@UNC, we welcome our MBA alumni back to school, from anywhere they are working around the globe, ” said Doug Shackelford, MBA@UNC associate dean. “Now they can remain lifelong students even if they can’t come to Chapel Hill.”
Alumni of any Kenan-Flagler MBA program can register for any MBA@UNC course being offered during the quarter, starting this summer for classes that begin in October and end in December. They will attend classes along with current students and do all of the work – readings, projects and exams.
“Our alumni can continue their MBA education from wherever they are in the world,” said Susan Cates, MBA@UNC executive director. “Courses are taught by top professors, some of whom alumni learned from when they were in Chapel Hill and others who joined Kenan-Flagler after they graduated.”
MBA alumni also may take the courses at any point in their careers, said Cates. “We expect that the classes will appeal to alumni who want to update their skills, need to broaden their knowledge as they change functions, or work in rapidly changing fields.”
Alumni will enroll for a quarter, take a course for a grade (they may not audit) and receive credit on their transcripts. They will pay $800 for each course to cover the costs of software licensing support, technical support, textbooks and course materials.
Spaces are limited for each course, so registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
