Institute & Centers
A collaborative platform for research and innovation
UNC Kenan-Flagler is known for its collaborative culture. You see evidence of that collaboration in how we conduct research, provide real-life learning opportunities and engage with industry. Our Frank Hawkins Kenan Institute of Private Enterprise and centers are critical to that work.
The Kenan Institute is where UNC Kenan-Flagler engages the world. It brings together high-profile business leaders, academic researchers and policymakers to explore innovative solutions to economic issues.
Our centers tackle pressing questions facing business and society and provide innovative education programs. Researchers from different disciplines within the Business School and across UNC come together to undertake these projects.
From a teaching perspective, our centers connect academics and business people to ensure our students learn the most current, relevant viewpoints from both leading research and industry practice.
