Points of Distinction

The Business Honors Program (BHP) at the McCombs School of Business is an innovative degree program designed to provide intellectual challenge and professional development for students with exceptional academic abilities and leadership skills. It is a program with a number of key distinctions: BHP Students: Our Biggest Asset

  • 500 students (120 per class)
  • Disproportionately high representation in McCombs and University leadership positions
  • Close-knit community built around professional and academic programming
  • Small classes focused on presentations, group collaboration, analytical exercises and the research behind actual business decisions.
  • Cased-based study modeled on MBA courses
  • Taught by the McCombs School’s most highly regarded professors.


The BHP curriculum and corresponding programming is designed to develop students at every stage of their college careers: incoming freshmen begin with Freshmen Leadership Kickoff, their official introduction to BHP where they are assigned to a peer mentor group. The mentorship program, along with a course to help them plan, implement and evaluate their post-graduation goals, rounds out their first-year experience. The BHP experience continues through hands-on learning; the Sophomore Case Competition hones students’ analytical and presentation skills. Juniors and seniors cultivate their more advanced technical skills through the Finance Boot Camp and reconnect with their classmates through various Make A Mark social events.

No competitive program offers such a well-rounded academic experience nor offers such extensive extra-curricular activities. We strive to continue the momentum of this exceptional program and we rely on our corporate partners for their support in this effort.
