For a brief description of courses offered in the UNCG MBA program, please view The Graduate School Bulletin.

Newly admitted students can make an advising appointment by calling the MBA Program Office at (336) 334-5390.

First day of class:

There is usually an assignment in preparation for the first night of each class. Always check the syllabus of your course to be sure to be prepared.

Make-up classes:

Throughout the course of the academic year and during the summer sessions, classes may be interrupted due to inclement weather, etc. In the event that a class is missed/cancelled, the MBA Program’s class make-up policy is that all make-up classes will be held on the Friday immediately following the missed class at the originally scheduled time. Please be sure to contact your instructor or the MBA Office (336) 334-5390 or mba@uncg.edu if you have questions or concerns.
