Critical thinking and leadership are at the heart of the UNC Charlotte MBA curriculum. Core classes immerse you in critical areas like finance, marketing, management and operations. From a complex spreadsheet to the principles of effective communication, you must first understand the functions of an organization before you can deliver effective strategic management.
The UNC Charlotte MBA is a 36-credit-hour program: the core courses (24 hours) and the elective/concentrations component (12 hours). Preparatory courses may be required for students who do not hold an undergraduate degree in business. Preparatory courses are not required for admission to the MBA Program. However, students must successfully complete courses in the preparatory courses before enrolling in 6000-level courses, except by permission of the MBA Director.
