UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Global Education Model

The Global Education Initiative is built on the framework of a unique Global Education Model®. The product of extensive collaboration and conversation with internal and external communities — including faculty, staff, alumni, recruiters and executives — the model serves as the roadmap for all of our degree programs to provide a systematic, comprehensive and transformative global education for every UNC Kenan-Flagler student.

From orientation to graduation, through courses, workshops and programs on campus and abroad, every UNC Kenan-Flagler student will develop four global business competencies:

GEI model
