Global Immersion: New York June 2014 | Global and International MBA Immersions

New York City Immersion 2014

In June 2014, MBA@UNC students joined their classmates, professors and industry leaders in New York City for an immersion experience focusing on media and finance. Sessions challenged students to explore how companies can find new ways of telling their stories in a fast-shifting technological landscape, and learn from the successes and failures that followed the 2008 financial crisis. Along the way, students were able to network with peers and faculty, participate in collaborative learning exercises, and even visit some of New York’s iconic institutions such as the New York Times and Bloomberg Financial.
