Base Camp for MBA Early Career Professionals

The MBA “Base Camp” is a mandatory orientation for new MBA Early Career Professionals, and provides you with a series of workshops designed to prepare you for your graduate business education at the Bryan School. To hone the fundamental skills necessary to succeed in your coursework, you will attend a series of seminars on topics such as case study methodology and business research training.

Base Camp also serves as the official welcome to the UNCG MBA. You will be introduced to fellow students, professors and administrators who will play key roles in your education. With Base Camp taking place the week before the semester begins, it is a relatively calm week on campus for you to become familiar with your new surroundings and to take care of buying books, getting an ID card, picking up a parking pass and other start-of-the-semester tasks.
