Competence: You choose your major - Accounting, general Business or Finance and we will deliver the in-classroom and out of classroom content that matters in the 21st century and is AACSB accredited! But acquiring competence involves additional perspective:
- Required Internship - practical and powerful exposure to industry practices and networking that could propel you to your first career position.
- Funded International Study - it is a global economy and an international perspective matters.
- Challenge - comprehension and competency will be evaluated through strategic management projects in your senior year.
Character: Ethical standards matter, particularly as businesses weigh competing demands with an increasing focus on sustainable business practices. Your Queens experience will be infused with a variety of opportunities to engage in the debate and practice of ethical and moral standards.
Community: We will encourage and quite frankly, push you to be actively engaged in the Queens community, but also the Charlotte business community. Why? Because businesses and communities are inextricably linked in their mutual success. The Charlotte business community deeply understands this dynamic and provides an outstanding training ground for you to grow and develop as a leader.
