Students at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte love the “proximity to the financial district in Charlotte,” which is a “financial hub” with “Fortune 500 and other reputable companies throughout the region.” “The flexibility of the program allows you to customize your concentrations, so they are relative to your strengths and what you would like to do in a future career,” remarks one happy student. There is a “focus on banking, as there are a lot of BofA, Wells Fargo, and TIAA-CREF students,” and the school has a particularly strong finance faculty. “The work piles up and is demanding,” one student says, “however, I’m getting used to the pace, and I feel that the extra work I put in is appreciated and noticed.” UNC Charlotte “is known for its diverse background and for its high expectation of students, which helps set up a two-way benchmark establishing goals for both the business school and the students.”

Students are very happy with the “very hands on” and “extremely flexible” administration. There is a “strong commitment from administrators to help students succeed at scholastic and career goals,” and “administrators will bend over backwards to help you in any way they can,” such as “constantly making you aware of internships and available jobs.” The administration is particularly quick at “answering questions or fixing problems.” “I have not had an issue yet that they haven’t fixed quickly,” one student says. “Overall they are friendly, responsive, and knowledgeable.” “The business school staff is very helpful and always available.” Students do feel the administration should do more for students outside of normal weekday work hours. There are “not many ‘after-workhours’ networking opportunities” and not enough “night/weekend class offerings for graduate studies.”

Students are also proud of their professors, who “really care about their students” and whose “doors are always open.” “My professors for the most part seem engaged, very intelligent, and reasonably demanding. The professors don’t want cookie-cutter answers and encourage depth in responses.” “A majority of the professors are top-notch,” and the ones who aren’t are “subject matter experts at worst.” Although most professors “are really great,” others “miss the mark and just teach the syllabus.” “Like any academic institution, it’s bureaucratic, but not so much.” One student explains the school “is accessible, and you can always be pointed in the right direction.”
