INSIDE KENAN-FLAGLER (IKF)
Diverse voices are critical in the MBA learning experience and within every corporation. UNC Kenan-Flagler strives to enroll talented MBAs each year from all walks of life. With this goal in mind, the Alliance of Minority Business Students and the MBA Admissions offer an MBA preview weekend for prospective underrepresented minority prospective students. Every fall IKF brings 50 of the best and brightest young talent to UNC to immerse them in the MBA experience. IKF is one of the premier minority preview events in the country. Since 1987, IKF has provided interactive sessions, panels, workshops, social activities, and the opportunity for prospective students to engage with the MBA Admissions Committee, corporate sponsors, current students, faculty, and alumni.
Harambee, Swahili for ‘coming together’ is a Kenyan tradition of community development self-help events. In this spirit of Harambee, since 1998 AMBS has organized an annual fashion show to raise funds for Global Scholars Academy. The show has united members of the UNC family along with other members of the broader community who share AMBS’ commitment to improving the educational opportunities of today’s youth. Why do we do it? For AMBS, business school is about more than our careers upon graduation. We also want to impact the North Carolina community as a whole. Institutions such as Global Scholars Academy provide a conduit through which we can help children who face difficult circumstances aspire to the highest levels of academic achievement.
