Queens University of Charlotte
Discover the leader within
The McColl School of Business at Queens University of Charlotte prepares students to become innovative and valued leaders who offer new perspectives and solutions in an ever-changing business environment. Our unmatched connections to the Charlotte business community provide incredible exposure to business and community leaders and countless networking, internship, and career opportunities.
A focus on leadership
Leadership is the cornerstone of the McColl School experience. It’s even in our motto: "Discover the leader within." Our proximity to Uptown Charlotte and Queens’ long-rooted connections to the business community provide the opportunity to learn directly from a variety of business leaders.
In our undergraduate program, all students have the opportunity to participate in our Leadership Passport Program, where they build key skills and abilities as future leaders. In our graduate programs, the Leadership Initiatives department oversees the curriculum for leadership development and provides cocurricular activities to enhance the personal and professional growth of all students.
The Executive Leadership Institute is designed to deliver relevant, timely, and practical professional development opportunities geared toward today’s professionals, including the Education Leadership Program (ELP), TWIST (Women’s Leadership Conference), Certified Financial Planning certification, and other customized programs.
The Entrepreneurial Leadership Circle (ELC) supports entrepreneurial education at the McColl School and fosters entrepreneurial spirit throughout the Carolinas. Through scholarship support, mentoring, coaching, and other enrichment opportunities like the Queens Pitch Competition, the ELC encourages entrepreneurial ventures of all sizes in an effort to stimulate economic growth.
The McColl School of Business faculty are renowned academics with strong credentials, experts in the subjects they teach, and practitioners with real-world experience. They are committed to supporting and challenging you as you pursue your degree.
LIFE AT QUEENS
A day in the life of a Royal
In short, Queens is an exciting place to be. Students and staff know each other’s names. There are plenty of on-campus events, and Royals like it here so much that they take advantage of every activity we have to offer.
Kick-start your college social life
Bond over the stuff you love with people you’ll grow to love. Pick from one of our 35+ clubs and organizations that are dedicated to all kinds of interests, from dodgeball to dance, music therapy, horseback riding, volleyball, and just about everything in between. If you’d prefer to carve out a niche of your own, feel free to start a new club!
We live not to be served but to serve
One of the ways we encourage students to make the most of our central location is by actively engaging in service opportunities. This helps support everything from elementary schools to the health care industry to secure housing and more.
Because wherever there are gaps in our community’s needs, Royals rise to fill them. And it’s not just our community that benefits. This form of experiential learning helps students develop deeper compassion, diverse experiences, and new perspectives that last a lifetime.
Royals rise to D-I competition
Queens is home to athletes of all levels, including intramural, club, Olympians, Paralympians, and D-I athletes (part of the ASUN Division I Conference). Our student-athletes have won a lot of national championships—and we’re just getting started.
