2019 MBA Global Finals

We recommend you rent a car or stay at a hotel with a local shuttle (no shuttle to airport, though). We have plenty of free parking in our business school deck and lots of signs pointing you to the event.
Many teams report that a house on AirBnB is the best way to go. For hotels, here are lots of good options nearby at every price point. Marriott Courtyard is offering a nice deal for $139/night under “VCIC” (deadline March 18). They will upgrade one room per team to a “master suite” so that you’ll have room to meet as a team in the suite. We also have Aloft at $120/night (deadline March 18). Both are a short drive to Kenan-Flagler, and both have shuttles in-town (not to RDU).
