School of Business Departmental Honors Program

The Departmental Honors is designed for motivated students with superior academic records to pursue an individual project in their major discipline. It offers opportunities for students to discover and study topics of special interest, develop research skills, and recognize outstanding performance in the field of their study.​

Conducting an honors project can set you ahead of your peers when looking for a post-graduation job, applying to graduate school, or in advancing your current career, so please consider this great opportunity.

Departmental Honors students are eligible to receive monetary awards to support their projects from the Anne & Bob De Stefano Undergraduate Research Program​.
