Elected Student Leaders
In the MBA Program, students can be elected to serve as leaders of the following groups:
Elected leaders represent the MBA student body to the larger campus community and external companies and organizations, providing a unique networking opportunity with program and business leaders. They actively apply the leadership competencies MBA students learn and develop as part of their MBA education. They are afforded the opportunity to leave a lasting impact on the student body, MBA Program, and UNC Kenan-Flagler community.
As part of their position, elected leaders participate in the Applied Leadership for Elected MBAs Course. The course will provide students with a framework on which to manage their organizations, complemented with one-on-one coaching. Students will be given an overview of a broad range of leadership styles and soft skills critical to success in any organization. Students will be given exposure to senior business leaders in and outside the classroom. The course is taught by Paula Sims, who has over 15 years of experience in leadership roles at multiple corporations.
