My internship

Why I chose UNC

  • The professors go the extra mile for students, and they make a point of knowing you. You're not just a face; they call you by name.
  • UNC has a unique college atmosphere that I found hard to match at the other colleges I had visited as a high school senior. In addition Kenan-Flagler Business School had a great reputation among the alumni at the high school I attended and came heavily recommended by the college counseling staff.
  • Why the U.S.? Most of the largest and most successful companies in the world are U.S.-based and employ U.S. managers. This speaks greatly of American business schools and business culture.

My experience of the BSBA program at UNC

  • The BSBA program offers as many outside-of-class learning experiences as one wants to take on. The professors and staff are always willing to help outside of class and provide unmatched experience in their fields of expertise.
  • I really appreciate the emphasis placed on teamwork at the school as it is a skill that employers value highly.
  • My most memorable experience was at the last Dean's Speakers Series event. Where else could you imagine meeting the CEO of KPMG at age 20?

The UNC Kenan-Flagler network

" I have been truly amazed at how many alumni I have met at various company information sessions. The breadth and depth of the Kenan-Flagler network is astounding."

Student life
