UNC Charlotte is North Carolina's urban research university. Located in the state's largest metropolitan area, UNC Charlotte is among the fastest growing universities in the UNC System.
Now a research intensive university, UNC Charlotte is the fourth largest of the 16 institutions within the University of North Carolina system and the largest institution in the Charlotte region.
Home to the global headquarters of seven Fortune 500 companies, the region has become a magnet for ambitious and aspiring young professionals from all over the world.
Just as the city has evolved, UNC Charlotte has as well. The university has anticipated and responded to this transformation by developing innovative academic programs and research centers in its seven colleges.
The Belk College of Business began collaborating with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences on the Mathematical Finance program in 2003. Together, the two colleges have designed this program to develop a highly specialized talent pool to manage the increasingly complex financial series industry. Industry leaders have been actively involved in ensuring that the curriculum provides students with the essential knowledge needed to success in the fast-paced financial arena.

AACSB International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools, worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review.
