Choices for Online MBA Students at UNCP

If you've been wanting to take your career in business to the next level, an online Master of Business Administration from the University of North Carolina Pembroke (UNCP) offers you the flexibility to do so. You can choose from one of three specialty programs or a general MBA program that builds business skills while still allowing you to specialize through electives.

Four Exciting Options

When you choose the online MBA program at UNCP, you can select a specialized program in Supply Chain Management, Financial Services, or Business Analytics. If you choose one of these programs, you'll be able to dive deep into the theory and practice in your area of concentration. You'll be prepared to work as a specialist in your chosen focus area. All of the programs prepare you for a high-paying career in business.

On the other hand, some students want to gain a broad understanding of the business world and choose to do a general MBA. Those students will study the full spectrum of business skills and will be able to explore a couple of subjects on a deeper level by choosing from a list of electives. These electives include courses on entrepreneurship, personal financial planning and business law. There are also courses that cover the nitty-gritty of running an operation and managing employees, IT systems and taxation.

A Strong Foundation

All of UNCP's online MBA programs have the same foundational and core courses, which give students a strong base to build on. All students study the basics of economics, marketing, finance, management and strategic planning. Students gain an understanding of how business works and how to thrive in a modern business environment.

Students who choose the Supply Chain Management concentration will take courses that focus on management information systems, supply chain management, and operations management, in addition to one elective. Students who choose the Financial Services path will take two concentration courses and choose two additional electives related to financial services and investment. Students who select the Business Analytics concentration will take four courses related to their concentration area.

Students who opt for the general MBA program will be able to tailor their learning experience by choosing four electives that will enable them to study as many as four different components of the business world in more depth.

UNCP's online MBA programs give you a solid foundation in business fundamentals while still offering you the option to become an expert in a specific area of business management. Our extensive list of elective courses allows students to customize their educational experience to best match their career goals.
