Career & Leadership

Leadership and your career

At UNC Kenan-Flagler, we believe leadership excellence and career development are synergistic. In the Evening Executive MBA program, you’ll enhance the personal leadership skills critical for business success through participation, practice, and evaluation. Whether you are one step from the C-Suite at a small organization, moving into a senior management role at a Fortune 500 company, or anything in between, you can create a personalized leadership curriculum designed around your objectives.

Tailored Career Coaching

Early in the Evening Executive MBA program, you’ll receive an individual Leadership Coaching session to examine and discuss your career goals. In this personal coaching session, you’ll explore your leadership style, identify your strengths and create a Personal Development Plan to activate your vision for success.

Throughout the program, you’ll have unlimited access to career and leadership coaching sessions with staff who are dedicated to our Executive MBA students – and versed in the unique career management needs of mid- and senior-level professionals.
