The McColl Difference
What separates the McColl School experience from other business education choices? Hugh McColl's "3 C's" model of leadership. The emphasis on competence, character, and commitment to community create a dynamic, practical, integrative learning environment where the classroom and the real world meet. The result? A degree that is respected, rewarding, and relevant.
- Individual leadership development. Other schools offer courses on leadership, but the McColl School offers each student the support to explore and develop his or her unique, individual leadership abilities with coaching and guided exploration.
- Experienced faculty. Faculty recruited to the McColl School have solid academic credentials in their fields-that's expected at any school. Of course the faculty research, publish, and present in their academic fields. But the McColl School also seeks faculty who have real-world experience and proven excellence in teaching, and the faculty actively consult with businesses to develop leadership and solve practical problems.
- Collaborative learning environment. Not every student will fit at the McColl School. One who just wants a "ticket punched" or a "degree" can find other options. But one who wants a collaborative learning environment where students draw on the skills of their colleagues, professors, and business professionals, one who wants to actively participate in the learning experience, and who wants to be able to immediately apply what is learned will choose the McColl School.
- Community connections. Through a variety of opportunities, students get to interact with business and political leaders in the Leaders in Action series, The Learning Society, the Executives in Residence, the Entrepreneurial Leadership executives, and other opportunities.
Students, faculty, staff, and the community come together at the McColl School to form a collaborative place of ideas and to develop individual leadership abilities. Because of Queens' deep tradition in Charlotte, students make connections that last a lifetime. Students (and their employers) consistently report that the McColl School was transformative.
"Not just a degree. An experience."
