About BHP

Neal Makkar

The Business Honors Program (BHP) is a prestigious and selective program, offering a curriculum modeled after case-based MBA programs. It challenges students to think outside of the box. Small class sizes of 30 to 40 students allow for increased focus on discussion, presentation, group collaboration and analytic exercises. BHP is more than just a top-rate education--it's a community. Special programming coordinated by the BHP and the Honors Business Association (HBA) provide opportunities for students from all graduating classes to form strong, lasting relationships with one another.

Neal received multiple awards in his time on the Forty Acres, including the 2015 President’s Leadership Award.
Neal Makkar, BHP Class of 2015, shares more about his experience in the program in this short video.
