Why are people who are determined to accelerate their careers choosing UNCG for their MBA?
Our focus is on creating exceptional problem solvers, a skill always in demand. The job market goes up and down. And business is about change.

The ability to identify and solve business problems makes our graduates valuable in many industries and valuable over the life of their careers.
Our track record for salary increases and our job placement rate—at less than half the cost of the average U.S. MBA—deliver an impressive return on your investment. Cost-benefit analysis is fundamental to good business decisions. Why not apply that to choosing an MBA program? The UNCG MBA costs less than half the average U.S. MBA program.

Low cost and high return make the UNCG MBA a smart business decision.
