A critical component of the Business Honors experience is the required internship. Because of the BHP's strong reputation with corporate employers, BHP graduates are often recruited into highly desirable internships that position them to be as competitive as possible when they recruit for full-time employment. In the past, students have done internships at each of the "Big Four" accounting firms, Goldman-Sachs, McKinsey, Bain, and Microsoft, along with hundreds of other corporations, reflecting the wide array of interests of BHP students.
The internship experience is a valuable part of a student's business education for many reasons. Students get the chance to apply their knowledge and classroom learning to real world situations, gain insight into a particular industry or field, meet, work, and network with prominent figures in their field, and often receive a job offer following graduation. BHP students always work hard and make positive contributions to the organizations that they join, impressing their peers and supervisors in the process. Because in part of the performance of students during the summer internship experience, the BHP has an outstanding reputation with major employers across the country and throughout the world.
