North Carolina is a beautiful state and a popular destination for vacation, location, and education. The Research Triangle area of Raleigh-Durham is a major technology innovation hub. Charlotte and the Raleigh Durham area rank high on surveys of desirable places to live in the United States. The North Carolina educational resources are also quite remarkable.
The University of North Carolina is one of the oldest public universities in the nation, and it joins more than 30 other regionally accredited colleges and universities. North Carolina is also a popular destination for corporate headquarters. More than 40 of the top 1000 US companies have their office headquarters in North Carolina, and that figure includes 14 firms ranked in the Fortune 500. These large national and international concerns offer employment opportunities to North Carolina’s annual crop of MBAs.
