Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Program Requirements

The School of Business Honors Program provides a challenging opportunity for exceptional business majors. The initial focus of this offering promotes a predisposition toward the exploration of contemporary business issues that can reshape the business world.  More specifically, its focus will enhance the student’s self-awareness of one’s potential and the development of professional research, writing and presentation skills. Sophomore and junior students are invited to apply for admission to the School of Business Honors Program during the fall and spring semesters of each academic school year.

Students currently enrolled in the University Honors Program are encouraged to consider the Business Honors Program.  Students with a 3.5 GPA or better are eligible to apply to the Business Honors Program in the second semester of their sophomore year or later. Students NOT in any honors program at BWU may take business honors courses if they hold a GPA of 3.5 or better and obtain permission from the Business Honors Director, Dr. Susan Kuznik, and the course instructor.

Minimum credits required: 10-12 credits

Elective Courses:

Three to five Business Honors elective credits are required. BUS 363(H)  topics include studies of contemporary issues (e.g. biomimicry, marijuana, eco-efficiency, international cultures).


* BUS 461H , when satisfactorily completed, substitutes for the BUS 451  capstone requirement.

Business Honors Recognition:

All Business Honors courses must be taken for a letter grade, A+ through F; they may not be taken on an S/U basis. Students who successfully complete the required business honors course requirements (10-12 credit hours earning grades of 3.0 or better) and who have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher will, upon graduation, receive the recognition “Graduating with Business Distinction” on their transcript.
