    Faculty

    Kenan-Flagler employs more than 150 tenured and tenure-track faculty members, adjunct professors and lecturers across its seven academic areas. These professors also contribute to the business school’s 14 research centers, which vary in focus from real estate to urban investment strategies.

    Curriculum

    Courses at Kenan-Flagler emphasize learning through case studies and small group activities.  For their first year, students are assigned to groups of 70 to 75 people who take the same required courses together.

    Kenan-Flagler breaks each semester into two seven-week periods of instruction called “modules,” with breaks for holidays and fall, winter and spring vacations. Two pre-term summer sessions called the Analytical Skills Workshop and Tools of Financial Markets are available to first-year students who wish to review key analytical and financial skills prior to beginning their degree.  First-years begin formal classes in the second week of August, while second-year classes start a week later.  All classes finish for the year at the beginning of May, with graduation occurring a week later.

    Kenan-Flagler students are required to complete 15 core courses their first year along with three other core requirements: a teamwork assessment, the Core Case Competition and a Leadership Initiative Credit.  Topics for core courses cover business fundamentals such as finance, microeconomics, marketing, accounting, ethics and business strategy.  Kenan-Flagler offers almost no waivers for its core courses; only those holding CPA designations may waive the accounting-related course.

    To complete their business degree, students must take 63 credits worth of classes. Each core course is worth 1.5 to 2.5 credits, and the remaining credits are fulfilled through elective courses.  Students may begin taking electives in the spring semester of their first year, and the second-year curriculum is comprised entirely of electives.  The school reports that at least 10% of elective courses are new each year in order to keep class material current with faculty research.  There are no required majors at Kenan-Flagler, but there are six suggested concentrations for students who wish to demonstrate their interest and proficiency in subjects such as real estate or operations management. Typically, each concentration requires students to complete five or six elective courses.

    Kenan-Flagler also encourages students to design their own independent study or practicum project in which students apply theory to real-world business situations.  Students interested in gaining international experience may study abroad for a semester at one of Kenan-Flagler’s more than 50 MBA exchange partner schools or spend one to two weeks abroad as part of a “Doing Business In” immersion course.  Alternatively, students can pursue a Global Immersion Elective, a semester-long course that teaches students about a particular region’s culture and history and concludes with a 10- to 14-day tour of that region.

    Other MBA Degree Options

    Along with the full-time MBA program, Kenan-Flagler offers eight dual degree programs, two of which are run in conjunction with schools at Duke University. Through the dual degree programs, students may earn an MBA in addition to an advanced degree in areas ranging from Public Health to Information and Library Science. Students also have the option to design their own dual degree programs.

    Kenan-Flagler also runs an online MBA program, through which students complete 66 credits over an 18- to 36-month timeframe. The school’s Executive MBA, meanwhile, can be completed either in the evenings or on the weekends at Chapel Hill. Kenan- Flagler also offers a global EMBA, called OneMBA, in locations around the world. The evening program takes 24 months to complete, the weekend program 20 months and OneMBA 21 months.

    Clubs, Conferences & Competitions

    Kenan-Flagler students play an active role on the UNC campus, participating in more than 45 clubs as well as five student-led advisory boards.  These groups range from clubs focused on careers paths such as consulting and private equity to affinity-based clubs like Carolina Women in Business or the Alliance of Minority Business Students.  There are also a number of athletic clubs focused on sports like basketball or running.  In addition to offering resources on career opportunities and professional development, Kenan-Flagler’s clubs regularly pair with companies to organize other events. For instance, the Consulting Club organizes career treks to Atlanta to visit companies including Deloitte, BCG, and Bain.

    Kenan-Flagler hosts a variety of conferences each year on areas ranging from real estate to accounting. Since 2010, for example, the school has hosted their own annual healthcare conference, which has focused on innovation, analytics and most recently, rising costs The most recent real estate conference in 2018 featured Sam Zell, Chairman of Equity Group Investments, as the keynote speaker. The school has also founded a number of business competitions, including the Venture Capital Investment Competition, the Alpha Challenge, the UNC Kenan-Flagler Real Estate Development Challenge, the UNC Kenan-Flagler Marketing Case Challenge, and the Sustainable Venture Capital Investment Competition.

    Campus Spaces

    Nearly all classes at Kenan-Flagler take place in the McColl Building, located on the south end of the University of Carolina, Chapel Hill campus.  Along with 18 classrooms, a 500-seat auditorium, a café and a computer lab, the building also houses classes for the evening MBA for Executives program.  The weekend MBA for Executives program, meanwhile, primarily takes places in the Paul J. Rizzo Conference Center, located approximately three miles from the school.  While there are housing options available on campus for full-time MBA students, those can be difficult to secure, so most students live in one of 10 apartment complexes near the school.

    Courses at Kenan-Flagler emphasize learning through case studies and small group activities.  For their first year, students are assigned to groups of 70 to 75 people who take the same required courses together.

    Kenan-Flagler breaks each semester into two seven-week periods of instruction called “modules,” with breaks for holidays and fall, winter and spring vacations. Two pre-term summer sessions called the Analytical Skills Workshop and Tools of Financial Markets are available to first-year students who wish to review key analytical and financial skills prior to beginning their degree.  First-years begin formal classes in the second week of August, while second-year classes start a week later.  All classes finish for the year at the beginning of May, with graduation occurring a week later.

    Kenan-Flagler students are required to complete 15 core courses their first year along with three other core requirements: a teamwork assessment, the Core Case Competition and a Leadership Initiative Credit.  Topics for core courses cover business fundamentals such as finance, microeconomics, marketing, accounting, ethics and business strategy.  Kenan-Flagler offers almost no waivers for its core courses; only those holding CPA designations may waive the accounting-related course.

    To complete their business degree, students must take 63 credits worth of classes. Each core course is worth 1.5 to 2.5 credits, and the remaining credits are fulfilled through elective courses.  Students may begin taking electives in the spring semester of their first year, and the second-year curriculum is comprised entirely of electives.  The school reports that at least 10% of elective courses are new each year in order to keep class material current with faculty research.  There are no required majors at Kenan-Flagler, but there are six suggested concentrations for students who wish to demonstrate their interest and proficiency in subjects such as real estate or operations management. Typically, each concentration requires students to complete five or six elective courses.

    Kenan-Flagler also encourages students to design their own independent study or practicum project in which students apply theory to real-world business situations.  Students interested in gaining international experience may study abroad for a semester at one of Kenan-Flagler’s more than 50 MBA exchange partner schools or spend one to two weeks abroad as part of a “Doing Business In” immersion course.  Alternatively, students can pursue a Global Immersion Elective, a semester-long course that teaches students about a particular region’s culture and history and concludes with a 10- to 14-day tour of that region.

    Other MBA Degree Options

    Along with the full-time MBA program, Kenan-Flagler offers eight dual degree programs, two of which are run in conjunction with schools at Duke University. Through the dual degree programs, students may earn an MBA in addition to an advanced degree in areas ranging from Public Health to Information and Library Science. Students also have the option to design their own dual degree programs.

    Kenan-Flagler also runs an online MBA program, through which students complete 66 credits over an 18- to 36-month timeframe. The school’s Executive MBA, meanwhile, can be completed either in the evenings or on the weekends at Chapel Hill. Kenan- Flagler also offers a global EMBA, called OneMBA, in locations around the world. The evening program takes 24 months to complete, the weekend program 20 months and OneMBA 21 months.

    Campus Spaces

    Nearly all classes at Kenan-Flagler take place in the McColl Building, located on the south end of the University of Carolina, Chapel Hill campus.  Along with 18 classrooms, a 500-seat auditorium, a café and a computer lab, the building also houses classes for the evening MBA for Executives program.  The weekend MBA for Executives program, meanwhile, primarily takes places in the Paul J. Rizzo Conference Center, located approximately three miles from the school.  While there are housing options available on campus for full-time MBA students, those can be difficult to secure, so most students live in one of 10 apartment complexes near the school.
