“Without the Business Honors Program, I would not be where I am today. In fact, I probably would still be in Southern California if not for Business Honors. The program has given me so much support and so many opportunities. I landed two of my on-campus jobs because of Business Honors, and I know that no matter what, I have a group of friends, tried and true.”

Business Honors Program

The College of Business Honors Program is focused on developing future leaders who will bring energy, optimism, and enthusiasm to the business world.

At the end of their freshmen year, each class takes an international trip to learn more about the increasingly global business world. The Honors Class of 2016 visited China in May 2013, and the current freshmen (Class of 2017) will be traveling to Singapore and Thailand in May 2014.

“The College of Business Honors Program not only adds great value to the students in the program. The honors students add great value to the College of Business.” John Hedeman – Founder of the Business Honors Program
