The University of North Carolina at Pembroke Student Stories
At UNC Pembroke, our focus is on our students. See what some of them have to say about our online programs.
Pursuing my MBA was always a long-term dream of mine. Whenever the online accelerated program became available, I thought that that best fit my lifestyle, especially as a nontraditional student and being out of school for 11 years.
Because of the class size being very small, you kind of get that private feel and then whenever you get the tuition statement and it's like, ‘Wow, I'm not at a private institution. I'm actually at a public institution,’ which feels great.
I think having the distinction of having an MBA and the credentials set you apart from other people. It gives you, I think, a step up. It was telling my employers that I had the ability and the desire to go beyond just what is expected.
I serve on three statewide boards, I have a calling in my church and I have a full-time day job as the Chief Executive Officer in a company; that is a very busy and demanding position. And still, I have the time to do this MBA online program because of the flexibility that it affords me.
I would definitely recommend this program. It's very manageable. You can work full-time. It's tailored specifically for people with full-time jobs, for people with families. You can take one class every seven weeks and work it in when you can, if it's an hour at night, an hour on your lunch break, every day, just to kind of get your homework and discussion boards done.
