Chapel Hill: December 2013
Global Immersion Experience
Developing Leaders For a Complex World
Global immersions are high-impact learning experiences in cities around the world. During immersion experiences, students learn new business frameworks from faculty, gain on-the-ground perspectives from global corporate leaders and collaborate with classmates to put newly gained knowledge into practice. Students also have the opportunity to further develop their leadership potential through one-on-one coaching sessions with MBA@UNC Career Management staff. The Chapel Hill Immersion experience allows students to meet many of their classmates and professors, as well as business school and university leadership in person.
Customize Your Immersion Experience
Students can customize their Chapel Hill Immersion experience by selecting the sessions that best fit their development needs and interests. This year, the immersion experience will be broken into three unique tracks of study—Leadership, Consulting and Health Care.
Leadership Development Track — These sessions help students examine and understand strengths and opportunities for growth in the context of team collaboration and individual work. Students will explore new learning models, share experiences, reflect through coaching and develop a plan to put these new approaches into action. Sessions include: Leadership Assessment, Ethics, Effective Team Dynamics, Executing Strategy Through People, Emotional Intelligence, and Performing Under Pressure, as well as personalized coaching sessions throughout the weekend.
Consulting Track — This track brings students together to participate in a hands-on, live case study experience where they serve as strategy consultants for a company. Students will be educated on the frameworks of successful business consulting and be tasked with developing and presenting a strategic solution to a complex business scenario.
Health Care Track — Students that participate in the health care track will explore complex issues facing the health care industry today, as well as learning from influential figures in the field about major challenges health care professionals will face in the coming years. Issues such as the Affordable Care Act, health care consulting, innovation and entrepreneurship, and health care policy will be discussed.
Throughout the immersion, students will also have the opportunity to tour the UNC Chapel Hill campus and experience local events such as watching the UNC basketball team take on Davidson at the Dean Smith Center on Saturday, December 21 at 5 p.m.
