As is tradition at MBA@UNC, the final immersion of 2014 was held on campus at UNC Chapel Hill. With more than 320 students in attendance, the December immersion was our largest to date.
This year, the Chapel Hill immersion focused heavily on leadership development, professional consulting and career management. Students had the opportunity to attend collaborative sessions, work closely with classmates and faculty, and engage with the UNC Chapel Hill community.
Leadership Development and Career Management
Through a series of guided sessions and collaborative exercises, students who attended the Chapel Hill immersion learned critical skills and philosophies of successful business leaders. Led by UNC faculty members and guest lecturers, sessions highlighted topics such as ethical leadership, team dynamics, avoiding career derailment and sustaining personal change.

Networking With Classmates and Faculty
One of the greatest benefits of attending immersions is the opportunity to expand upon the relationships students develop online. With such a tremendous attendance at the December 2014 immersion, students had numerous opportunities to mingle with classmates, meet their professors and develop new connections with aspiring business leaders from all over the world.
Experiencing Chapel Hill
MBA@UNC students are full members of the UNC Kenan-Flagler community. While attending the Chapel Hill immersion, students were able to tour the campus, learn more about the university and even visit the surrounding cultural attractions of Chapel Hill, NC.
