Belk College of Business

The Belk College of Business is Driving What’s Next for our students and the Charlotte region through our dynamic programs, alumni engagement, strong corporate partnerships and impactful faculty research. We are on a trajectory to become one of the country’s top urban research business schools. 

April 5-7 is our seventh annual #NinerNationGives, Charlotte’s 49-hour digital giving campaign. We ask our Belk College alumni, family and friends to support our students, faculty and staff, wear green and show your Business Niner pride.

We are calling on Business Niners across the globe to show the impact the college has had on their lives and support our current and future Business Niners during #NinerNationGives. Show your pride in the Belk College and prepare our future alumni to lead and pursue careers that matter.  

Spread the word and make a gift now to help the Belk College win the unit challenge by having the greatest number of gifts during #NinerNationGives. Your support will make a significant difference in the lives of Belk College students. 

Thank you, and Go Niners!
