Weekend and Evening EMBAs now require less time on campus

The University of North Carolina's Kenan-Flagler Business School has announced that it has redesigned its Weekend and Evening EMBA programs to better meet the needs of working professionals.

The main change is in how the courses are delivered. In UNC's evening program, students attend class one night per week (reduced from two nights per week) in addition to four weekend residency sessions. The Evening EMBA program takes 24 months to complete.

In the weekend program, classes will now be held one weekend every three weeks, in addition to one week-long residency session. The Weekend EMBA program takes 20 months to complete.

The EMBA programs will also include "networking with technology-enabled modules," as well as an increased "focus on leadership and professional development," according to a UNC press release.
