Making futures brighter

Burress III (AB ‘58), UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA students recently had the chance to help make a difference in the lives of young people in Cape Town, South Africa.   The project, known as Global STAR – South Africa, was a full partnership between South African Education & Environment Project (SAEP) and UNC Kenan-Flagler to support and empower disadvantaged youth in Cape Town. In addition, it gave MBA students the opportunity to work on real issues facing an organization in an emerging market. “The goal of the project was to develop a strategy for SAEP to increase its efficiency and social return on investment,” says strategy team member Monique Jackson Read More

Student perspective

This summer I had the opportunity to intern for ProLogis, an industrial real estate investment trust, in its D.C. office. In this project-based internship, my objective was to understand the government’s procurement process for industrial real estate and identify where opportunities exist.  After thirteen weeks of interviews, industry meetings and research, I presented my recommendations to ProLogis’ Executive Committee in Denver.

Returning to Chapel Hill for my second year, I’m determined to take advantage of the classes, activities and the area. Beyond these Read More

A rich experience

As I approach my 10-year reunion in October, I can’t help but think back to my orientation week in 1998, particularly the moment when I met the members of my first year study group.  Fear and uncertainty were Read More
