Manoj Wunnava: Leader of change

UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School recently featured Manoj Wunnava, MD, MBA, in its online news publication.

Manoj “Bobby” Wunnava (EMBA ’14) was an accomplished student on the path to a successful career in the health care industry –with an undergraduate degree in environmental engineering from MIT and an MD from The George Washington University – when he joined the U.S. Air Force.

From 2000-04, Wunnava served as a flight medical officer and occupational medicine physician at three separate Air Force installations in the U.S. and Asia, working  to ensure medical readiness especially after 9/11.

Upon entering the military, Wunnava declined the Montgomery GI Bill, thinking his education was already complete. “I spent the next 14 years kicking myself, recognizing the potential that additional education would provide,” says Wunnava. “My clinical skills were strong, but I wanted to have a different playbook to apply business concepts to changes coming down the pike in the areas of risk management and mitigation. I wanted to be able to approach problems from a business perspective.”
