The Business Learning Community (BLC) is a cohort of first-year business students who live and attend classes together. The program is designed to ease transition to university life, enhance student academic performance, provide opportunities for direct exposure to business and networking, and improve the overall student experience.
Designed for diverse, highly-motivated students with leadership potential and an interest in professional development, UNC Charlotte's BLC provides first-year business students with a built-in community of learners and a current and future professional network.
