Real Humans of UNC Kenan-Flagler’s MBA Class of 2020

The Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is celebrating its 100th birthday this week. Through the decades of development and evolution in business education, the school has grown in tandem with its core values of excellence, leadership, integrity, community and teamwork.

Over 4,000 alumni enjoy careers with Fortune 500 companies, over 900 graduates have reached C-level positions and more than 250 work as CEOs.  Kenan-Flagler also prides itself on graduates not just creating positive change in companies they lead, but also creating positive impact on the communities they serve. The school has reported that more than 250 MBA students contributed more than 2,000 hours of community service, with 44 students serving as nonprofit board fellows. These experiences are fostered in part through Kenan-Flagler’s Community Service Committee, which offers students a diverse range of meaningful service opportunities to create a positive impact on their neighboring and global communities.

During the program, students live and learn these core values through such offerings as Student Teams Achieving Results (S.T.A.R.) and Global Consulting Projects.  Kenan-Flagler students have executed over 40 corporate consulting projects in four different countries through these programs.  The flair for international connections is also apparent in the school’s networkmore than 33,000 alumni are represented in 81 countries.
