UNC Kenan-Flagler offers summer business immersion for undergraduates


Undergraduate students from around the world are invited to develop their business leadership and entrepreneurial skills in a summer immersion offered by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School.

The five-week, for-credit program runs June 24-Aug. 2 and includes classroom instruction, guest presentations and networking with leading Kenan-Flagler faculty members and business representatives and an excursion to Washington, D.C., the nation’s capital.

“Our goal is to provide a unique opportunity for undergraduates to gain knowledge, exposure and connections that help them become responsible, successful global business leaders,” said Julia Kruse, executive director of the UNC Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), which coordinates the program.

The 2013 immersion courses are:

  • Professional Selling Strategy and Skills, designed to give students a practical understanding of the B2C and B2B selling process for products and services.
  • Entrepreneurship & Business Planning: Invention, Market Validation, Business Model Creation, for individuals who want to understand and practice the key factors, attitudes and tools required to create a new venture or startup.

Application deadline is February 15. Details are available at www.ciber.unc.edu/summerbusinessimmersion.
