Advising Resources for Incoming and Current MBA Students

If you are a new student in the UNCG MBA Program, welcome! We are excited to work with you and help you find success through this program.

A great place to start is by referencing the Newly Admitted Student Checklist. This Checklist is designed to help you get set up with your accounts, course registration, tuition payments, and everything else you need to do before the start of the semester. Another useful resource is the 2019-2020 MBA Program Policy Handbook which outlines program policies, campus resources, highlights important dates and deadlines, introduces you to the MBA faculty and staff, and more!

Study Abroad

MBA 745: Experience Business Abroad

Because it can be difficult to devote an entire semester to study abroad, the MBA program has developed MBA 745: Experience Business Abroad, which is designed to expose you to foreign business practices and cultures. This popular one-week course is a faculty-led trip abroad to tour cultural, business and governmental sites as well as to attend lectures and roundtable discussions with local business leaders and scholars. MBA 745 takes place during Spring Break, and you will receive 3 hours of academic credit for your participation.

Our Spring 2020 study abroad trip will take place in Mannheim, Germany. More information about the program details, how to apply, and coursework will be available soon!
