Experiential Learning

In the business world, you’ll put the skills you’ve learned in school to work to analyze data, make important decisions, lead teams, and brainstorm and implement solutions. At UNC Kenan-Flagler, we’ll give you the chance to do this long before you jump into the real world.

With numerous experiential learning opportunities complementing your core and elective coursework, you’ll learn by doing. Whether you’re consulting for a local nonprofit, managing an investment fund in our state-of-the-art Capital Markets Lab, or pitching a marketing plan at a national case competition, the learn-by-doing approach will give you new skills, knowledge, and, perhaps most importantly, confidence.

“Participating in the Deloitte Case Competition was perhaps one of the best experiences I had to bring my classroom knowledge into a real-life consulting scenario. I learned that business is truly multi-faceted, and my team was able to produce stronger recommendations to the Deloitte practitioners, judges, and UNC professors with all of our varied backgrounds. It was an incredible learning opportunity to apply my business knowledge from the classroom into the real world."
