Rebecca Bishop is studying Finance and Marketing, with specialized concentrations in both majors for a unique business edge. She is a member of the Business Honors Program and on the executive board of the American Marketing Association student organization.
What major(s) are you pursuing and why?
I am pursuing a double major in Finance with a concentration in Risk Management and Insurance and Marketing with a concentration in Analytics. I believe being a double major in these fields gives me a unique perspective on the market and gives me a wide range of knowledge that most students don’t get the opportunity to have.
Why did you choose the Belk College of Business/UNC Charlotte?
I am an out-of-state student and when I was searching colleges, I came across UNC Charlotte. I was intrigued by all the opportunities it presented at the college and in the surrounding Charlotte area. I was especially pleased with the Belk College of Business and the Business Honors Program.
What activities are you involved in when not working and studying?
I am involved with the Business Honors Program and the American Marketing Association on campus. I have been a part of both of them since my freshman year. I have been on the executive board of the American Marketing Association for two years now. I have also played on the competitive tennis intramurals team.
What has been the best part of your academic experience so far?
The best part of my academic experience so far has been all of the leadership and professional development I have gained. These have helped me get an internship this past summer with Bank of America as a Consumer Banking Summer Analyst in their headquarters in Uptown Charlotte.
How would you describe the Belk College of Business to someone who is thinking about applying?
The Belk College of Business is a place for collaboration and diversity. The faculty and staff are always willing to help you further your success.
