UNC Kenan-Flagler Creates International Board of Advisors
The University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School has created a new International Board of Advisors (BOA) of alumni who will advise the dean as the school expands its ongoing engagement with the global business community, the school announced on Tuesday.
Comprised of nearly two dozen UNC Kenan-Flagler alumni living in 17 different countries, the board will hold virtual meetings two to three times a year. According to James W. Dean Jr., dean of UNC Kenan-Flagler, creating the board builds on the school’s history of initiating new models of global education and fostering a deep engagement with business worldwide.
“These leaders navigate international business issues on a daily business, and they are uniquely positioned to work with the School as we deepen our ongoing focus on globalization,” says Dean. “In addition to our virtual meetings, I will travel to Europe, India, Asia and Latin America to grow our interaction with these alumni and other leaders of companies in business centers around the world.”
Having an international board of advisors is a valuable resource for the school that will bring the benefits of local knowledge and resources of alumni around the world, something that will dramatically extend the UNC Kenan-Flagler brand for recruiting, placement and development, says Jeff Tucker (MBA ’00), director of Century Bridge Capital in China and a member of the School’s Alumni Council and International Board of Advisors.
