The Leadership Initiative

What I learn in class today, I apply to my work tomorrow – from leadership skills to strategic planning. I’m already a better manager, with a deeper impact on the success of my company.

—Rajiv Sridhar, MBA@UNC Student

At UNC Kenan-Flagler, we believe that our graduates learn how to lead by participating, practicing and evaluating. That’s why we developed leadership programs based on our continuous learning model of principles, practice, feedback and reflection to help you develop and enhance the leadership skills that are critical for business success.

The UNC Kenan-Flagler Leadership Initiative transforms the model into a customized, actionable leadership and career development plan for MBA@UNC students. As an MBA@UNC student, you will have the opportunity to graduate with a unique Leadership designation and — more importantly — be prepared to translate practice into real-life success.
