Dual Degree with Copenhagen Business School
The Belk College of Business at UNC Charlotte and the Copenhagen Business School are collaborating on an exciting dual master’s-degree program in economics. Graduates of the program will receive both an M.S. in Economics with a Quantitative Financial Economics concentration from UNC Charlotte and a MSc in Economics and Business Administration, specializing in Applied Economics and Finance from Copenhagen Business School. Students will spend one academic year in each location. For more information on this program contact Amy Riter.
The department of Economics strives to provide students with the opportunity for paid and non-paid internships with various employers around the city and region. Also, many students are successful at obtaining paid internships through the Hire-a-Niner website and job fairs held on campus. If a student has a qualifying internship during the summer semester or any other time, the student can appeal for that internship to be counted as directed study credit. Contact Amy Riter if you are interested in obtaining or earning credit for an internship.
