The University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, together with business school accreditation organization the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), will take the lead in helping business schools think about how best to develop a leadership curriculum as part of a seminar in late January.
The Curriculum Development for Leadership seminar, which will take place January 23rd and 24th in Chapel Hill, will prepare participants from a range of business schools to tailor leadership development experiences according to their schools’ specific capabilities and resources.
“We want to help others learn from our experiences and share best practices from our comprehensive leadership programs,” Mindy Storrie, director of leadership development at UNC Kenan-Flagler, said in a statement. The 2013 seminar, also co-hosted with AACSB, sold out entirely.
Attendees at the 2014 seminar will learn how to use simulations, exercises and assessments to improve student leadership skills as well as how teach students to take advantage of extracurricular activities as opportunities for leadership development. One of the featured simulations, called “Up Your Game,” was designed by Kenan-Flagler specifically to help prepare its MBA graduates to use responsible leadership as a means of inspiring, influencing and guiding colleagues.
A number of Kenan-Flagler administrators and professors will serve as seminar facilitators, including MBA Program Associate Dean Sridhar Balasubramanian, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior Alison R. Fragale, Professor and Area Chair of Organizational Behavior David A. Hofmann and Associate Director of Leadership Development Peter Romanella.
