Asynchronous learning means that there is no required time for students to log into their online classroom. Instead, they have weekly online assignments to complete and frequent chances to engage with their professor and peers. Activities in the virtual realm may include, but are not limited to, video lectures, interactive exercises, and chat rooms. There is no need to come to campus. In two and a half years, students will have finished the curriculum. The program welcomes new students in the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters each year.


The UNC-Greensboro program will be attractive to applicants who want structured opportunities to develop on-the-job skills and build their network, because it requires both an internship and a capstone consulting course. Students also build relationships through mentoring, and acquire skills in Basecamp project management. Unlike some programs, Greensboro also accepts students with less career experience, placing them in a special highly supportive Early Career Track which includes a required on-campus orientation.  

Greensboro will also lure students interested in its distinctive concentrations in Cyber Security, Economics of Health Analytics, and Taxation. Students have the opportunity to test the MBA experience through the Bryan Prelude program, allowing them to study as a visiting student for up to six credits that can later be applied to the MBA.
