Business Matters – a series of talks with experts and entrepreneurs


QCity Metro has partnered with UNC Charlotte’s online MBA program to host discussions with experts and entrepreneurs on a range of business topics.

With the launch of their 100% online MBA program, UNC Charlotte wanted to help us shine a light on some of the entrepreneurs and business talent already in Queen City, via online webinars.

QCity Metro columnist and entrepreneurship coach Donna Maria hosts the interviews for Business Matters. Throughout this four-part series, you’ll appreciate the lively spirit that Donna Maria brings to these conversations, as a range of business topics are discussed.

How two friends became successful business owners

In the first episode, Donna Maria sat virtually with Jabbar Jamison and Centario Grier – owners of J&G Legacy Financial Group. They discuss how to choose the right business partner, the life of a founder, and how Jamison benefited from enrolling in the UNC Charlotte MBA program.

Advice from a business professor

Next, Donna Maria chatted with Dr. George Banks – Associate Professor of Management and Head of the Department of Management at UNC Charlotte’s Belk College of Business. They discuss current and future trends in business, how to be a successful entrepreneur and more.

And after?

Donna Maria will discuss with another professor, Dr. Janaki Gooty, the experiences of MBA students during the MBA program. Finally, Donna Maria will speak to Latesha Byrd – an alumnus of the Belk College of Business about her journey into entrepreneurship.

Keep an eye out for these discussions to come later this summer.
