The Belk College of Business has been a driving force for more than 50 years. Business Niners are innovative leaders, creators, and change agents. Our alumni provide the energy to drive business and community growth forward in Charlotte and across the globe.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, 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 at a time when they need it most. Select one of the impactful designations below.
