CURRICULUM FOCUS
University of North Carolina at Charlotte Business Program
UDC Contributor

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.

Music, Class of 2010

U My experience at UNC Charlotte was transformative and unforgettable! Academically, I was a part of a small cohort of students that were able to develop wonderful mentorship relationships with our professors. Beyond their individualized attention, professors pushed us to achieve more than we might have thought we were capable of. All professors, regardless of their discipline, took a real interest in the students, as well as in their teaching emphasis, making UNC Charlotte a great place to study. As a music major, there was a palpable comradery between the students—comradery that has ended in lifelong friendships. My experience at UNC Charlotte set me up to be successful both in graduate school and in my career. Academically, socially, and in every other way, I couldn’t recommend UNC Charlotte highly enough for your higher education experience.

Finance and Political Science, Class of 2011

U Finance at the Belk College of Business was an awesome experience. I think I most enjoyed the diversity of thought that I was exposed to within my classes. A lot of business schools get stuck in a routine of just lecturing to students, but the professors at the Belk College of Business really make an effort to use open class discussions to challenge you to not just learn the topics, but instead comprehend and use them. My favorite part of my time working towards my political science degree was definitely the North Carolina Student Legislature class. This class gives students a chance to practice writing and presenting legislation in a mock legislature scenario with other schools throughout the state. Having the ability to speak in front of peers from multiple schools really helped my presentation skills, which has set me up for success communicating throughout my career.

Masters in Civil Engineering, Class of 2001

U My experience at UNC Charlotte was valuable as a chemical engineer who had chosen to be home caring for her family for 16 years. My faculty mentor and advisor, Dr. Helene Hilger, enabled me with the opportunities to update my skill sets and succeed. As the chemical engineering complimented the environmental engineering side of civil, it enabled me hands-on research experience in anaerobic digestion, energy production, and an understanding of the aquatic chemistry. As all aspects of life overlap within our environment and the greater environment around us, my skills are applicable in developing the technical assistance throughout our region.

Michael
Management and Marketing, Class of 2012

U My favorite college professors were the ones that took the time to learn my name. With an average class size of 35 and student-faculty ratio of 19 to 1, I received the attention I needed to succeed in the classroom. My favorite college professors not only challenged me, but also encouraged me to always think outside of the box. Although they weren’t always the ones with the easiest classes, they pushed me to work harder for the grades I earned in theirs.

Stephen
Sociology, Class of 2008

U The thing I enjoyed the most about the university was the diverse background of people academically. There were a large number of business and engineering students, but you also had a mix of those in education, health sciences, and liberal arts. Being a sociology major, I enjoyed getting to learn about the habits of individuals—as well as learning about various topics including criminology, marriage and family, and even motorsports in the South. The professors I enjoyed the most were down to earth and easily accessible if you had a question about the subject being discussed in class, or just needed some motivation to help you on a topic for a paper or project.

What is the campus setting like?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

With a campus that spreads across 1,000 acres in a lovely suburban setting, it’s not surprising that 77 percent of UNC Charlotte’s student body lives on campus. Not only does the layout give students convenient access to classes, sports facilities, and art galleries, but also on-campus residents have their choice of housing styles. Whether they are interested in the more traditional residence hall living they find in Holshouser Hall or Moore Hall, the apartment-style housing of Belk and Maple halls, or the suites found in Laurel Hall and Lynch Hall, the campus has a little something to make every student feel welcome and comfortable. And of course, no campus would be complete without its Greeks, who can be found housed in Greek Village. Thirteen large brick chapter houses all connect around a large grassy lawn.
