Diversity Weekend

Check back soon for our 2019 event dates!

At UNC Kenan-Flagler, we believe our community should reflect the global community. That’s why UNC, Kenan-Flagler Business School and the MBA program are committed to building a diverse, inclusive culture.

Diversity Weekend is a two-day experience in the fall for prospective full-time MBA applicants for historically underrepresented groups, such as African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, LGBTQ+ individuals and military candidates.

The Alliance of Minority Business Students, Students of the UNC Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, Pride Club, Veterans Association and MBA Admissions & Student Recruitment host the event.

We welcome all who share our commitment to diversity.

For two days you can immerse yourself in the UNC Kenan-Flagler community and see what resources are available to support the success of students from diverse backgrounds. You’ll tour our facilities, get to see Chapel Hill, and hear from members of the Kenan-Flagler community during panels and interactive experiences.

During the two-day event, you’ll have opportunities to:

  • Take part in interactive panels and workshops
  • Get admissions, financial aid and career management tips
  • Network with alumni and current students
  • Enjoy social activities with current students

Important details:

  • Meals will be provided by UNC Kenan-Flagler during Diversity Weekend.
  • Attire for the weekend is business casual.
  • Participants are responsible for all travel arrangements and travel expenses. Discounted accommodations will be offered at various hotels in the area Thursday and Friday nights.

Participation in Diversity Weekend has no bearing on MBA admissions decisions. However, you will have an opportunity for an admission interview while you’re on campus (see below).
