Consortium at UNC

As an active member of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, we work to cultivate an atmosphere that is welcoming and supportive, creating a strong and close-knit community.

UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School is a proud member of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (CGSM). Consortium members have continuously upheld the organization’s mission and strengthened the culture at UNC Kenan-Flagler by being champions of diversity, inclusion, and influential leadership.

The Consortium Community

Throughout your MBA experience, you’ll have the opportunity to build connections inside and outside of the classroom through shared interests and passions. Members of The Consortium at UNC Kenan-Flagler strive to enhance diversity and inclusion in business education and leadership.

As a member, you’ll immediately join a strong and diverse community of business professionals who you will create lifelong bonds with by:

  • Holding study sessions, tutoring, and test preparation together
  • Volunteering in the community including participating in Habitat for Humanity and organizing a toy drive
  • Attending social events throughout the year; such as bowling, back to school mixers, and short trips near Chapel Hill
  • Working closely with the Full-Time MBA admissions team to support prospective student outreach initiatives
  • Participating in diversity panels and discussions aligned with the mission of The Consortium

Orientation Program

More commonly known as “OP,” The Consortium Orientation Program is organized to give participating students a hands-on opportunity to get valuable career development advice from the top business leaders nationwide. During OP, you’ll have the chance to network with more than 500 other MBA students from across the country who are also beginning their journey during a robust schedule filled with workshops on various business topics, mock case breakout sessions, career forums, and social events.

“One of the most amazing things about OP was being in a room with over 500 other students who were beginning the same journey in business school. Connecting with companies that are committed to diversity & inclusion, and knowing that these will be companies I could work at in my future. Preparation for OP set me up for success before I even walked onto campus, and allowed me to have the confidence to actively pursue internship opportunities.” – Meredith Tozzer, MBA ’21

"The Consortium has been a crucial part of my MBA experience. My enterprising classmates and second year students have frequently set up study and tutor sessions to help us prepare for finals and midterms. They almost ran the gamut during elections and are heavily represented throughout the MBA leadership structure. It is great knowing that a whole group of people have my back and will go out of their way to make sure I am successful.”

Aaron Cappelli, MBA '21
