UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School

Graduate Placement

Through contacts with professors at other universities, the faculty works closely with students to identify and evaluate prospective positions. The director of the Ph.D. Program also maintains a file of universities, research institutions, and other organizations seeking persons with doctorates in business administration. To aid in the job search, the Kenan-Flagler Business School normally pays a substantial part of the cost for each student to attend a professional meeting in the year in which he or she seeks employment.
