Previous work experience is preferred but not required. International students must also submit TOEFL scores and an affidavit of financial support. UNCG states on its website that the lowest GMAT score it will accept is a 550 and the lowest grade-point average it will accept is a 3.0. Don't take that as gospel, though. At least some successful applicants fail to meet those benchmarks. It's also worth noting that fellowships, scholarships, and graduate assistantships are available to defray the already low tuition.

Student Life

A broad mix of students, both full-time and part-time, attend UNCG. One student put it this way: “The students in the Bryan MBA program come from a range of different back­grounds. My cohort alone represents seven different countries. This allows for different perspectives on international business and global issues. The students are friendly, but are focused on their studies and internships so there is limited social time.” The University of North Carolina at Greensboro has “great spirit” in a “nice little town” on a “safe campus.” “The school is very much a community where professors, students, athletes, and non-students are frequently passing each other on campus.” There are “nice buildings, classrooms, and facilities.” “The gym is in great condition and the student union center has plenty of food options with space to sit and eat while studying.” “There is plenty of off-campus housing.” For those driving to campus, “Parking is easily accessi­ble.” Campus transportation is available and “runs rather late for those that commute or want to get off campus. There are plenty of restaurants nearby including a few on campus as well as downtown.” “The city of Greensboro is wonderful and offers everything a grad­uate student could want.” Classmates “are all bright, motivated individuals” who are “very amiable and fun, great to work with in group assignments, and very dedicated to their education and work.” Many “are working parents…who have chosen to reach for something more either with­in their chosen careers or in a new and exciting one.” They “come from very diverse back­grounds, making in-class discussions very fruitful and enriching. Everyone is open to dis­cussion and generally accepting of each other’s differences in opinions.” “Classes are all very discussion driven and students are very active in them and will debate respectfully. Everyone is willing to help each other.” People here are very tolerant. “Race and sexual preference never are a problem at our school.”

Career

The school’s location in Greensboro, North Carolina has “plenty of employers” and “pro­vides for good job opportunities.” Bryan’s unique targeted recruiting service works to actively partner with local employers and in doing so promotes current students to employers with specific needs. There are several on-campus recruiting events and many of the MBA social events include alumni, who tremendously help in networking. “UNCG has a solid reputation in the oldest MBA program in the Triad. Many of the top compa­nies in the area recruit from UNCG.” Administration is very good about sending “email communication and announcements to students regarding activities, job fairs, and other announcements.”

Students Say

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro Bryan School of Business and Economics offers its students a rigorous program filled with “great courses.” The graduate program at this “prestigious” school is “challenging,” but not necessarily overwhelming. Students agree that with dedication and the help of “a very supportive MBA Office,” a degree here is very achievable. “The academic value is excellent!” exclaims a current student. “The degree can be attained in two-years, costs less than any comparable program in Central NC, and is very highly rated.” High praise goes to the “fantastic student services and administration,” which are “immensely effective in helping students [achieve] their goals.” “The entire school administration shows a care for the student body and a strong desire for them to do well.”The faculty also receives glowing reports from students for being “well versed in their dis­ciplines and very enthusiastic about teaching.” They are also noted for being “very diverse” and “approachable and have the students' best interest in mind.” One student agrees by saying, “I absolutely love the professors in the MBA program. They inspire me to want more out of myself. They aren't teaching us how to pass a test, they are teaching us how to survive and thrive in the world.” Another student appreciates how “professors are effective at integrating recent business trends into the curriculum.” The “classes are set up to ensure dialogue versus a monologue from the professor” which creates an “acade­mically stimulating environment.” The school as a whole does an excellent job helping students stay on track. Administrators “strive to facilitate each student mapping out a plan of study to match their particular career and life goals. Professors make themselves available throughout the entire program, not just during their class.”“Affordability” and a positive experience at UNCG’s undergraduate school are both pop­ular reasons for attending the graduate program here. One student sums this up saying, “I attended UNCG for my undergraduate studies and greatly appreciated the quality of my education, especially with respect to the price of tuition.” Studying abroad is yet another draw to the school. “Our study abroad program is superb. We have a special course for MBA's in the spring to learn about business in a given country and then visit that country and make business contacts as part of the course.”
