Fortune | UNC

Time Inc.’s Fortune and UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School are working together to create new online programs for business leaders scheduled to launch in fall 2017.

“Fortune creates powerful content and experiences for its audiences across all platforms, and this is a unique opportunity to engage with business leaders in a new way,” said Alan Murray, chief content officer of Time Inc. and president of Fortune. “UNC Kenan-Flagler disrupted the business education market with the launch of its online MBA program, and we look forward to working together to expand their innovative approach to learning to reach businesspeople wherever they are working.”

Programs will be designed for both emerging and mid-level business leaders by UNC Executive Development and taught by UNC Kenan-Flagler professors. The programs will incorporate Fortune’s video content, including interviews with Fortune 500 executives.

“Collaborating with Time Inc.’s Fortune – which has a tradition of excellence in business content and connecting leaders to address important topics – is a natural fit for us,” said Douglas A. Shackelford, dean of UNC Kenan-Flagler and Meade H. Willis Distinguished Professor of Taxation. “Through our partnership, we will offer a valuable blend of expertise and access for busy executives who are eager to develop their business expertise and need the flexibility of online learning.”

Executives who successfully complete the programs will have the opportunity to earn certificates from the business school. The first certificate program is titled “Leading With Purpose.”
