Business leaders need to be outstanding communicators, innovators, decision makers, change agents and critical thinkers. They must be able to handle ambiguity, to promote teamwork and collaboration, and to be the best coach and mentor they can be. It is a tall order. Improv can offer a safe, creative atmosphere for business leaders to develop these skills.
We are proud to announce the Shaping Leaders Fellowship to honor that commitment to leadership by offering a total of $40,000 in tuition funding to one or more outstanding admitted students whose applications demonstrate excellence in the areas of leadership and teamwork in their careers. Fellowships will be awarded to candidates admitted to the January 2013 class.
London, England, was the setting for the third MBA@UNC Global Immersion in June 2012. MBA@UNC students, faculty and staff convened to examine the increasingly interconnected global markets and the European debt crisis.
Not too long ago, UNC Kenan-Flagler ran a video competition called MTV@UNC. We asked full-time MBA students participating in a leadership immersion to create music videos that best represented their time at the school.
We posted final videos on our Facebook page, where our fans could vote for their favorites. After a week of voting, the video titled “The Kenan-Flagler Way” (seen below) won the competition.
We consider diversity to be one of Kenan-Flagler’s greatest assets. We actively recruit talented individuals from all ethnic groups and support a variety of organizations and activities that promote the representation of minorities in MBA programs.
All MBA@UNC applicants who have an exemplary record of achievement are eligible for consideration for MBA@UNC Fellowships. In addition, applicants to the full-time MBA program are eligible for UNC Kenan-Flagler fellowships that cover full or partial tuition.
