As we welcome new UNC Kenan-Flagler graduates to the ranks of our alumni, we want to remind everyone about the many opportunities to stay connected and engaged with UNC Kenan-Flagler.

Be the best alum you can be with these seven easy steps.

  • Create (or update) your alumni profile.

Visit our alumni website to create or update your information. Be sure to include your current contact information, company and title, and up to three career codes that reflect your professional experience and interests.

Please be sure to include a valid email address that you check regularly.

Students, faculty and staff rely on this information for a variety of purposes – including identifying and inviting alumni to speak to classes or at conferences and events, host groups for career treks, contribute to our school magazine and more. Alumni also use the directory to connect, network and share career opportunities with fellow Tar Heels.

The email address you provide is where we’ll send invitations to alumni events in your area, surveys from the media outlets that rank our programs, and our News & Impact newsletter to update you on all things UNC Kenan-Flagler.


  • Get LinkedIn.

Our alumni network is known for being among the most supportive and effective – a tradition we hope you’ll help us continue.

Add UNC Kenan-Flagler to the education section of your LinkedIn profile to allow current and prospective students, alumni, faculty and staff to easily identify you as a Business School graduate and receive updates from the school in your news feed.

Be sure to join our UNC Kenan-Flagler LinkedIn group to connect and engage with the Business School community.


  • Attend UNC Kenan-Flagler events.

Visit our events calendar for an up-to-date listing of conferences, networking events and activities. Our receptions and Alumni Club events are a great way to meet and network with fellow Business School grads and learn about the School’s latest initiatives – and have some fun in the process!

Not local to Chapel Hill? Be sure to include your email address in your alumni profile to receive invitations to UNC Kenan-Flagler events in your area.
