Entrepreneurial Leadership Circle Fellowships
The Entrepreneurial Leadership Circle (ELC) is a group of entrepreneurs who have embraced the McColl School of Business and who are a vital link between Queens University of Charlotte and the resources of Charlotte's entrepreneurial community. The ELC funds the following fellowship programs:
The ELC Leadership Development Award is awarded each year to one degree candidate in the McColl Executive MBA program. This competitive award is designed to attract highly motivated individuals who have demonstrated academic achievement, outstanding character, community service, successful completion of at least nine hours of core level programs and a commitment to entrepreneurship as a career. Financial need is not a factor in selection, but the selection process includes a rigorous interview with a committee consisting of ELC members and a presentation of the students business plan and model. The award recipient also receives intensive mentoring from ELC members and a complimentary ELC membership during their tenure as a fellow.
The Billy O. Wireman Fellowship is available for new degree candidates in the McColl Professional MBA program. It is named for the late Dr. Billy O. Wireman, president emeritus of Queens University of Charlotte, and is designed to attract highly motivated individuals who will be leaders in the 21st century. The award is based on a student's past academic achievement, character, community service, and performance on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Financial need is not considered in the selection process.
The Wireman Fellowship is funded by the Entrepreneurial Leadership Circle in recognition of Dr. Wireman's role in establishing the ELC and his leadership in the Charlotte region.
