Spring 2023

  • DBI programs have a program fee (administrative fee) that is payable directly to the partner school. This would cover course material, some meals, cultural tours, etc. In case it also covers hotel, a note is added. 
  • Short intensive electives are just courses and most do not have a program fee, unless they offer a cultural program alongside. (example Warwick).
  • For all programs offered, UNC Kenan-Flagler participants pay tuition for the credits earned to UNC but not to the partner university. For FT MBA this is part of the flat tuition fee, for everyone else it is per credit for the course you choose.
  • VA benefits excluded for DBI programs
