No, would anyone know how they do it? Is it usually included in admissions decision notification?

I was admitted today as well. I doubt they grant scholarships to students admitted off the waitlist. Maybe I am wrong though.

I graduated from UNC MBA in recent past.
Regret ever since --- severe shortage of jobs for Asian applicants (except-Computers).
Wish I had missed a year and re-applied to other business colleges.

Hope you all do better than me.

Decision deadline is Friday for people submitted off the waitlist last week. Are you deciding between Mendoza and KFBS?

Congrats to all accepted students and good luck to those on the wait list. As someone who just graduated from the KFBS full time MBA program last Sunday I can honestly say it was two of the best years of my life. I am looking forward to starting a great job in late July but am envious of you all just starting out on the MBA journey :thumbsup:

As a recent UNC MBA (recent as in last weekend), I'd like to expand on this comment. While I am not an international student, what I've heard is that international students do find it more difficult to find employment than US students. The reason is simple: companies that recruit do not typically sponsor visas. That means international students have fewer opportunities and it is more competitive. That being said, 89% of students without US work authorization have accepted employment opportunities 3 months post graduation (compared to 92% of those with authorization).

While I only know UNC, I would be shocked if this wasn't a problem at other schools.


As far as 2016 applicants, I hope the application year has treated you well. I loved my UNC experience and the vast majority of alumni feel the same way, so feel free to reach out to current students or alum - it wasn't that long ago that we were in your shoes. You can reach me on LinkedIn - Joe Plumb - particularly if you're interested in Big Data or Analytics.

-Joe

Can anyone please throw some light on 2 month pre mba ASW course that Kenan Flagler offers?

For a full time employed person it's a loss of 2 months paychecks and 2 months of additional living expenses. Also the ASW course will cost anywhere from $3000 to $6000. Overall cost is very high which adds to your full time mba fee & expenses.

Does anyone has idea whether we can do an alternate course (such as online) which will allow us to continue full time job as well?

Please share your thoughts.


I'd like to know about this too.
Did you email them directly to know about alternative certificates online?


I just graduated from UNC Kenan-Flagler and I would like to first of all congratulate you on getting admitted. It's one of the elite schools that prepares you well for a exciting career and a great community (classmates, faculty, staff, and everyone) to be in touch with forever. I can definitely say that the last two years were among the best years of my life. I don't know if I had ever gotten the skills and knowledge that I developed had I not attended UNC Kenan-Flagler.
I attended ASW2 2 years back and I found Finance and Accounting useful if you have no prior background. I would definitely recommend to go for Accounting as the first mod ramps up pretty fast and coming from a job-schedule, there are tons of things that we have to do. Any prior prep on accounting and finance definitely helps. Regardless of ASW, the faculty is very supportive, so even if you do not attend ASW, the faculty and SY tutors are there for you always to support.

I am a recent grad (class of 2014) and I was International student (non-computer science).
While I agree that it is harder for international students to get a job (that is the case everywhere), I have to say I had the best two years of my life at Kenan-Flagler and I ended up with a great job. I actually transferred from another school because there were more job opportunities for international students at Kenan Flagler than my first school. UNC Kenan-Flagler has great records of employment and average and median salary that you can easily check on the website.

I would be happy to answer any questions.

I never knew one could transfer in MBA from another school.

I mean not all schools would allow that as people would be keen to move to higher ranked schools.

UNC is a great school. BUT it is well known that almost every second student there is on a full ride or 80% fellowship. This makes the student body GOOD or great - but not when it comes to jobs. UNC students get jobs - but that pay less and there are less options when you compare it to other higher ranked schools - such as Duke. This is even a much bigger problem for international students.

Based on this information pretty sure that only 15% of class get more than 50% ride. Know one guy who got a full ride, he had a GMAT of 770 apart from a great profile.

I applied, got accepted and started from the beginning. The best decision I have ever made!

Jobs "that pay less" and "there are less options"? Not at all my experience. My husband (UNC MBA 2013) and I (UNC MBA 2014) are working for Apple and Microsoft, respectively. With base and projected bonuses (not including stock grants), we will be making ~$300k combined annually.

This comment is so interesting to me, because we literally had a conversation yesterday about how we could not have made a better decision than attending UNC. The value, to us, was SO high because tuition was lower than competitor schools and we were not limited at all in terms of job opportunities. We are going into fantastic companies with great pay, had a phenomenal experience at UNC, and paid less for our educations than we would have had we chosen to attend a higher-ranked school.
