Residency Requirement

Professional Evening MBA students will complete two mandatory 3-day residencies (MBA 531 and MBA 532) on the NC State Main Campus. Active duty military may waive this residency requirement and replace it with another elective course.

What to Expect 

Class size is restricted to ensure students have an opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from both their peers and faculty. Typically, you will spend 2-3 hours studying for every hour of classroom instruction, and it’s worth it!
