The University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s Belk College of Business has deep roots in the local business community and a mission to support the regional economy. From the classroom to the Charlotte Chamber, Belk aims to create a thriving commercial environment. To see this dedication to local economic development, look no further than UNC Charlotte’s Executive Education programs—which provide customized learning in areas like cybersecurity and risk management, leadership, and entrepreneurship and innovation—where business leaders come to hone their skills and take what they’ve learned back to their organizations. And when Belk is not contributing to the business community through education, it has its finger on the pulse of the local commercial landscape through the research it conducts. For example, the school provides data for the Babson Capital/UNC Charlotte Economic Forecast, a quarterly report that makes predictions about the North Carolina economy. Similarly, since 2005, the Center for Real Estate at Belk has partnered with members of the industry to conduct research on the real estate field. For business graduates interested in real estate, Belk offers a master’s degree program that emphasizes real estate development and finance.
