Business Honors Program

Benefits

Honors courses

The most conspicuous benefit will be the opportunity to enroll in Business Honors courses, taught by some of the most gifted faculty in the school.

Courses are smaller than the non-honors offering, which allows for significant interaction with the honors faculty.

Below are the honors courses offered during the current academic year.
