Leadership experience is an important and valuable part of your UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA experience. Many students choose to pursue leadership opportunities with one or more student-led groups. You can be elected to serve as a leader of the MBA Student Association, Student Clubs and Advisory Boards
As an elected leader, you represent the MBA student body to the larger campus community and to external companies and organizations. This provides you a unique networking opportunity with university and business leaders.
Elected positions give you the opportunity to apply the leadership competencies you’ll learn and develop as part of your MBA education. You’re also afforded the opportunity to leave a lasting impact on the student body, the MBA Program and the UNC Kenan-Flagler community.
Elected leaders participate in a course that provides a framework to manage your organization, complemented with one-on-one coaching. You’re given an overview of a broad range of leadership styles and soft skills that are critical to success in any organization, as well as exposure to senior business leaders in and outside the classroom.
