Questrom Honors Program

The Questrom Honors Program curriculum builds upon the BSBA curriculum at Questrom School of Business to give students a unique opportunity to explore areas of interest in greater depth through a series of seminars. This is a rigorous academic program. The expectation is that students come prepared to every class and should participate actively both in and out of the classroom.

The progression of the Honors Program is as follows: 

Sophomore Year

  • Honors Program students participate in seminars in the fall and spring semesters of their sophomore year in which they research and discuss topics and issues in business and other fields with the Faculty Director of the Questrom Honors Program. Previous seminars have included exploration of career paths through a series of alumni visits, identifying new business ventures, entrepreneurship, and dealing with failure.

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 40 hours of community service projects during their three years in the program.

In addition, students will have the opportunity to explore a variety of fields within the liberal arts or in other disciplines outside of business through the completion of required upper-level electives. Many Honors Program students also pursue minors, study abroad, and/or dual degree options. Periodic sessions and events bring together students, faculty, alumni, and administrators for informal discussions, academic programs, panels, presentations, and social gatherings.

Students may apply to be considered for invitation to the program after the fall of their first year. In addition to a successful application and interview, acceptance to the program is contingent on earning a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.45 in at least 12 academic credits in each semester of the first year. Students successfully completing the requirements of the Honors Program will have the “Honors” designation on their Boston University transcript.
