All students, both from the Foundations of Business (MMS: FOB) and the Duke Kunshan University (MMS: DKU) groups can, if they choose to, nominate themselves for the available positions.

- Co-Presidents of the MMS: FOB program
- President of the MMS: DKU program (the rest of the student leaders for DKU are selected upon arriving on campus in Kunshan)
- Culture and Norms Representatives (2 positions, one for each section, Blue & White)
- Activity Chair
- Communications Chair
- Career Chair (2 positions, one for a domestic student and one for an international student)
