Management Honors Program

The Management Honors Program curriculum builds upon the standard curriculum at the School of Management to give students a unique opportunity to explore areas of interest in greater depth.

Sophomore Years

  • Honors Program students participate in colloquia in the Fall Semester of their sophomore year in which they research and discuss topics and issues in business, education, and other fields with the Faculty Director of the Management Honors Program.
  • The Spring Semester sophomores participate in an International Field Seminar, a semester’s worth of country analysis and study of culture, history, and economy culminating in a weeklong international trip.

Junior/Senior Years

  • Honors Program students complete two 2-credit seminars taught by some of our most esteemed undergraduate and graduate faculty.

Community Service

  • Students in the Honors Program complete 10 community service projects during their four years at the School of Management.

In addition, students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of fields within the liberal arts or in other disciplines outside of management through the completion of a minor. Many Honors Program students also pursue study abroad and/or dual degree options. Periodic dinner meetings and other events bring together students, faculty, alumni, and administrators for informal discussions, panels, presentations, and social gatherings.

Students may apply to be considered for invitation to the program after the fall of their freshman year. In addition to a successful application and interview, acceptance to the program is contingent on earning a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.50 in at least 32 academic credits. Students successfully completing the requirements of the Honors Program will have the “Honors” designation on their Boston University transcript.
