Experience Global Business Firsthand
MBA@UNC Global Immersions take place four times per year and give students the opportunity to travel to major business centers in the United States and around the world. During immersions, students join their classmates, professors and influential business leaders to engage in collaborative learning experiences, take in the local culture and develop invaluable personal and professional relationships.
Students are required to attend at least two immersions during their time in the program and can choose any domestic or international location for each. Learn more about Global Immersion destinations:
The Immersion Experience
At UNC Kenan-Flagler, we are committed to educating well-rounded leaders. Immersion experiences support that goal by exposing students to diverse ideas, cultures and individuals from around the world.
Learn from Global Business Leaders
Immersion speakers include business leaders from both local and multi-national organizations, who share their knowledge and engage students in highly interactive learning experiences. Past speakers have included executives from Pandora, Google, Raytheon, The Economist and Proctor & Gamble.
Network with Professors and Classmates
During immersions, students have the opportunity to meet in person with the peers they have come to know online, share the experience of engaging with local culture, interact with professors in a real-world setting and work together in hands-on, problem-solving scenarios.
Focus on Career Development
Immersions offer students the chance to engage in hands-on, personalized career-development services such as resume workshops, one-on-one career planning sessions and LinkedIn workshops.
Experience Local Culture Firsthand
In addition to learning sessions, attendees participate in group events within the local community. Past outings have included a safari tour at the Singapore Zoo, a boat cruise down the Thames River, working with children in the Soweto area of South Africa and visiting Google’s headquarters.
