Biltmore Park Town Square, Asheville
Western Carolina University Programs at Biltmore Park is a residential location at Biltmore Park Town Square. This new facility opened in August 2012, providing almost 25,000 square feet of beautiful classroom and workspace designed especially for our programs. Large windows, comfortable furniture, and customizable spaces create a dynamic and effective learning environment tailored to our students’ needs. Three wireless Internet networks are available with 24 wireless internet access points as well as multiple Ethernet ports ensure full access throughout the building.
Students have access to four study rooms, one large multi-use collaboration room, and a break room with refrigerator, microwave, and vending machines (including healthy option machines). Parking is ample, close by, and free of charge. Students also have access to the same traditional services including library resources, health care, counseling, and recreation. Right outside our door, Biltmore Park Town Square offers a variety of restaurants, specialty retail stores, and entertainment such as outdoor concerts, a 14 theater cinema, and YMCA.
The MBA program will hold all Asheville cohort classes (both full time and part time enrollment) at the new Biltmore Park location. Plus, thanks to the additional office space available in the new building, the MBA coordinator, Kelly McIntyre, is also based at Biltmore Park to provide students with better access to services as well as increase program recruiting and promotion in the surrounding areas.
The new space allows for greater flexibility in class scheduling as well as opportunities to provide continuing education and professional development. The new location provides easy access to those in Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, Madison, McDowell, Transylvania and Polk counties.

Harrah’s Casino and Hotel, Cherokee
Our part-time Cherokee-based cohort meets twice per week in state-of-the-art employee training facilities at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and Hotel. Courses meet face-to-face with an instructor from the College of Business at Western Carolina University. Classrooms are spacious with comfortable chairs and large tables, wireless Internet and Ethernet port access, and instructor presentation equipment.
Located about 30 minutes northwest of our main campus in Cullowhee, this part-time cohort location is more convenient for working professionals in the more western area of our state. While many students are Harrah’s employees, all qualified applicants are welcome to attend at this top-notch location.
