Business skills and knowledge can apply to countless opportunities, and obtaining a master’s degree can lead to several career paths within or beyond the business world.

If you’re considering a graduate degree in business, you should know what you want to do with the degree and you should ask yourself why.

Perhaps it is to:

  • Move up within your current company and climb the corporate ladder
  • Interact and build a network with local businesses
  • Take your career in a new direction
  • Build your professional network
  • Start or improve upon your own business
  • Improve analytical and communication skills
UNCW’s Cameron School of Business provides many options to help strengthen your skillset and business acumen. We are pleased to offer face-to-face programs on a full- or part-time basis, as well as hybrid and completely online options.

So which program is right for you?

If you want to equip yourself with a broad skillset and knowledge of multiple aspects of business, an M.B.A. may be a great option. At UNCW, we offer four versions of the MBA.

If you are hoping to grow professionally while at your current position and without having to relocate, take advantage of the convenience of the Online Corporate M.B.A. You can fit learning into your schedule without sacrificing your income or current position.

The Executive M.B.A. combines primarily online learning with three face-to-face residencies. The residencies, two on campus and one abroad, allow leaders to gain the soft skills needed to become an effective manager. This program is for those looking to achieve a higher level of responsibility in their firms without having to relocate or leave their current employer. This is a full-time 21-month program.

If you prefer a combination of both face-to-face instruction and online coursework, a part-time hybrid program like our Professional M.B.A. may be the perfect fit for you. It offers the flexibility of meeting one evening a week but allows you to complete some of the work online. You will enjoy small class sizes and a real-world experience consulting project for a local business.

Our International M.B.A. is a part of the International Business School Alliance Dual Master’s Degree Program, and is an excellent choice for the adventurous. Travel to one of our five partner universities located in destinations, such as Spain, Russia, France, Germany or the United Kingdom. Earn two degrees in one year through this full-time, face-to-face program, with one semester spent intensively studying marketing, finance and strategy at UNCW, and another semester abroad at a partner university for your second master’s degree.

If you are looking to obtain your CPA, then the Masters of Science in Accountancy is the program for you. Our program has a high placement rate and CPA exam pass rate. You can prepare for a career in tax, assurance or systems advisory.

Launch your career in an exciting technological field with a Masters of Science in Computer Science and Information Systems. Become an expert in high-demand fields like mobile development or information security. 

The Masters of Science in Business Analytics program is offered full- or part-time and is delivered completely online. This program of 10 courses is tailored to the working professional who wishes to develop a competitive advantage through the use of cutting-edge analytics techniques and tools. More and more, businesses are using advanced data analytics to make important decisions, so jobs in this field are skyrocketing.

If you are looking to take a deep dive specifically into finance and investments, the Masters of Science in Finance and Investment Management will offer you the opportunity to gain a specialized finance graduate degree as well as the opportunity to prepare for the CFA exams.

Designed for the working professional, the program is fully online and can be completed in one calendar year or can be completed at a pace that allows you to balance work, home and school responsibilities. This new and unique degree offering delivers a traditional M.S. finance degree that is aligned with the CFA candidate body of knowledge.

Graduates from any of the programs offered within the Cameron School of Business can expect a high-quality, yet affordable, education that will equip you with the tools to further your career.
