It’s the only program of its kind in Charlotte, and only one of a handful throughout the nation. The Belk College of Business is offering a chance to learn more about its Master of Science in Management at Preview Day, Saturday, Feb. 24.
The innovative new master’s degree in management complements any non-business undergraduate degrees, filling a critical gap for graduates who desire a professional career, yet lack a business foundation. This program provides a unique approach to add relevant business acumen to resumes, versus an MBA, which typically requires prior work experience.
- The M.S. in Management instills the fundamentals of business through a core curriculum, providing transferable skills that better position graduates for employment in their field.
- The degree prepares individuals to solve business problems, evaluate and sell ideas and lead teams across a wide variety of functions and industries.
- The program is a full-time, 10.5 month, 30-credit hour degree, delivered in-person at UNC Charlotte Center City. It is cohort-based with no electives or concentrations.
