Raleigh Residencies (Leading People 1 and Leading People 2)

Professional Evening and Online MBA students are required to complete the Raleigh Residencies, which are two, credit-bearing, 3-day courses. Students take MBA 531 Leading People 1 in their first semester, and then must complete MBA 532 Leading People 2 prior to graduation.

Residency Details

The focus of the Raleigh Residencies (MBA 531 Leading People 1 and MBA 532 Leading People 2) is to provide important lessons on non-verbal communication, presentation, and networking skills. Active duty military may waive this residency requirement and replace with another elective course.

Students should plan to be involved in residency activities all days, including some evening events.

During the residency, most meals will be provided by the Jenkins MBA program. Travel and lodging expenses and reservations are the responsibility of the student. More details will be provided shortly so you may plan accordingly.
