The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an outstanding example of a transelite program. In many ways it the equal of many elite schools yet it is somewhat easier to gain admission to UNC. Students who are interested in the elite schools of the US should certainly consider UNC seriously, not as an inferior substitute but as a viable alternative with similar qualities.

Academic Calendar: Modules (4 per year)
The first module is precribed.
Selectives begin in the Second Module.
True Electives can be taken in the Third Module.

For information about the Chapel Hill area see the following link:
http://www.chocvb.org/


The center of the distribution is near 670/3.3.

Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill is more expensive than some b-school locations, but the overall COL is still less than half that of NYC. Housing is less than a third as much.


The Raleigh-Durham economic area #24 in the US, larger than that of Cincinnati and roughly the same size as Sacramento (CA).

UNC is a great regional school with a strong reputation in the south-east. In some areas for example- accounting it can hold its own,when compared to other regional rivals - NCSU, Duke, EMory etc. The accounting program @ UNC is very strong and respected in the area and in the nation. it has ranked consistenlty in the top 5 for the last 5 years according to the CPA journal of accountancy.

I would go one step further and argue that UNC is a school with national pull that falls below that of the elite/ultraelite schools.

Placement Data-

For one year UNC equalled or exceed the number of placements of UVA and UC Berkeley at McKinsey and Deloitte Consulting

In the prior year, UNC had more placements at McKinsey than UVA.

So what is the right way to pronounce Kenan-Flagler? Is it KEE-nan or KE-nan?

Thanks.

Another plug for KFBS.

It is a great school with a great reach. I just finished up my undergraduate degree from the school, and it was a wonderful experience.

It is pronounced KEE-nan :wink:
