­I just got an email titled 'When you can expect your Full-Time MBA admission decision' .
I haven't been invited for an interview yet. I've noticed others received a similar email previously. Did anyone eventually receive an interview invitation after this email?

Hi, there is no pattern with regard to these mails. I have not received this email either before invite or post interview. The only reliable indicator would be if someone from UNC checks your LinkedIn profile.

Submitting your application to our Full-Time MBA program can feel like you just finished a marathon, and comes with a lot excitement and many questions. One question we often receive is, "when should I expect a decision on my application?"

We will release your admission decision on March 11, 2024.

Ahead of this big day, we encourage you to review our events calendar. It's filled with webinars hosted by members of the UNC Kenan-Flagler community and opportunities to visit us in Chapel Hill. You can also connect with an MBA Student Ambassador to hear about their unique UNC Kenan-Flagler experience.

As always, we're here to help. If you have any (other) questions, send us an email at mba_info@unc.edu.

Hi, 

Choosing between ISB Hyderabad and UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School, especially when considering a significant financial incentive like a full-ride scholarship at UNC, requires a careful assessment of various factors aligned with your post-MBA goals. Here's a structured approach to help you weigh your options:

Career Goals and Industry Focus
  • ISB Hyderabad: Known for its strong network in India and Asia, ISB is ideal if you're aiming for a career in markets within these regions. It has excellent ties with the Indian corporate world, making it a great choice for entrepreneurship, consulting, and technology roles in Asia.
  • UNC Kenan-Flagler: With a full-ride scholarship, UNC presents an attractive proposition, especially if you're looking to work in the US or in industries where UNC has strong placements, such as finance, healthcare, and technology. The school's global alumni network can also be a valuable asset for international career opportunities.
Financial Consideration
The financial aspect is significant. A full-ride scholarship at UNC Kenan-Flagler means graduating debt-free, providing more flexibility in career choices post-MBA, without the pressure of loan repayments. This contrast with the full tuition at ISB requires careful consideration of the ROI based on your career aspirations.

Location and Network
  • Location Preference: If your post-MBA goal is to work in India or nearby regions, ISB's location provides geographical advantages and networking opportunities within these markets. Conversely, UNC offers a gateway to the North American job market.
  • Alumni Network: Both schools have strong alumni networks, but their geographic strengths differ. Consider where you want to build your career and which network could offer more support and opportunities in that region.
Curriculum and Specializations
Both institutions offer robust MBA programs, but there might be differences in their curriculum, specializations, and experiential learning opportunities that align more closely with your career ambitions. Research and compare these aspects based on your interests in specific sectors or functions.

Cultural and Personal Considerations
Think about where you want to live for the duration of the program and potentially after. Cultural fit, lifestyle, and personal growth opportunities in each location should also play a role in your decision.

Long-term Career Vision
Consider the long-term trajectory of your career. Where do you see yourself in 5 to 10 years, and which school aligns better with that vision? The brand and network of the school, along with the specific opportunities each provides, can significantly impact your career path.

Ultimately, your decision should align with where you see the best fit for your career goals, financial situation, and personal preferences. Both schools offer unique opportunities, and the choice between a significant financial incentive and geographic/career alignment requires a thoughtful assessment of your priorities and future aspirations.­ In case you need help with more such advices or financially backing your studies reach out to GyanDhan here

I remember getting this in R1, I got waitlisted without an interview after this. I believe they send it out after releasing all invites, but this is only anecdotal

Just curious how someone from UNC checking our Linkedin profile is a indicator? And is it positive or negative indicator?
