"Being a student at MCB has made all the difference for me because the college excels in all areas of business instead of just one. The class sizes are small enough to get to know your professors and other students, which makes learning all the more impactful. My professors are always willing to work with me so that I fully understand the material, instead of just forcing me to memorize it. Becoming a General Business student at UNC was the best choice I ever made."

- Sarah Miller, Class of 2016
