Business Honors Program

About the Program

TheĀ Business Honors Program (BHP) is both a major and a program. It provides an intellectual challenge for serious and accomplished students and preparation for immediate entry into a challenging business career or graduate studies. BHP students may design a general program of study or concentrate on one of the major programs in business.

BHP core courses are accelerated and modeled after those taught in the MBA program. BHP courses are taught by some of the McCombs School's most experienced faculty. Emphasis is placed on class discussion and presentations, case study analysis, and the research of actual business decisions. Enrollment in BHP classes is restricted to students in the program, and the small class size (generally 30-45 students) facilitates interaction among students and faculty
