Chapel Hill, December 16–18, 2016
The annual UNC-Chapel Hill immersion gives students the opportunity to come together with classmates and professors, explore the campus, network with the Tar Heel community and engage in collaborative exercises designed to build both personal and professional relationships.
This year’s Immersion will feature three tracks for students to choose from:
Leadership Development Track
This track focuses heavily on developing personal leadership effectiveness through assessment tools, simulations and discussions with thought leaders in the field.
Leadership Cornerstone Track
This advanced leadership track includes new topics and approaches to developing leadership skills using an interactive, action-based approach.
Led by Professor Paul Friga, the Consulting Track helps students develop the problem analysis framework used in the consulting world and allows them to apply it immediately during a live case competition. Students will work in small teams to create a presentation to share with company executives at the end of the weekend. In addition to work in small teams, Professor Friga will lead students through a variety of in-class exercises to aide in preparation for their presentations.
In addition to the academic component of the immersion, students have the opportunity to explore the town of Chapel Hill and engage in social events outside of the classroom. Past immersions have included outings such as a walking tour of the Chapel Hill campus guided by the dean of the business school, and attending a Tar Heel basketball game.
