The modern healthcare industry requires knowledgeable and effective business leaders with creative problem-solving and leadership skills. The University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School recognizes the demand for these professionals. We are focused on developing skilled professionals who are well-prepared to take on the difficult challenges in the healthcare industry, and on building a strong presence in the industry.
Professionals with experience in private and public healthcare organizations and the medical community are encouraged to participate in this enrichment to further expand their entrepreneurial and strategic leadership opportunities. In addition, this enrichment will provide a solid foundation for individuals with life sciences degrees or those with a passion for the healthcare industry.
By drawing on the deep healthcare knowledge base at UNC, the Kenan-Flagler Business School is uniquely positioned to emerge as a problem-solver and leader in the changing landscape of the healthcare marketplace. UNC Kenan-Flagler has teamed with UNC’s School of Medicine to pursue a joint initiative focused on medical entrepreneurship and innovation.
