Offered four times a year, the MBA@UNC Global Immersions are exciting opportunities for students to convene in some of the world’s most captivating cities to learn new business frameworks, gain on-the-ground perspectives and collaborate with classmates to put what they learn into practice.
When asked what he advice he would give a new MBA@UNC student, recent graduate D’Andre Payne said, “Go to as many Global Immersions as you possibly can. Having the opportunity to go somewhere, learn something and meet your fellow classmates and cohorts face-to-face — that’s something you can’t get from any other program.”
On September 12, 2013, 84 MBA@UNC students arrived in Turkey to participate in the Istanbul Global Immersion. Titled “East Meets West,” together they will explore Turkey’s unique role as a growing economy that sits on the physical and cultural divide between Europe and the Middle East.
Legendary UNC-Chapel Hill basketball coach Dean Smith first coined the words “The Carolina Way” to reflect the spirit of the university. The Carolina Way means something slightly different to every Carolina student and alum, but underpinning every definition is a belief in excellence. This excellence drew me to Carolina as both an undergrad and graduate student, and it’s what attracts so many students from around the world.
