Business Honors Program

Program Information

The Culverhouse Business Honors Program (BHP) provides opportunities for outstanding Culverhouse undergraduates to enrich their business education. The program emphasizes class presentations by students, faculty, business leaders, and campus recruiters as well as independent research and project work over two years of undergraduate study.

Admission

Approximately thirty-five (35) C&BA juniors will be chosen from students who apply to participate in two years of business honors seminars. Those who complete the two-year program will earn Honors College credits for selected Culverhouse College of Business classes and graduate with Business Honors recognition. To be eligible for admission, a student must have earned at least a 3.5 grade point average or higher and be admitted to the College's Upper Division with at least 60 credit hours.

Course Work

Business Honors students participate in weekly one-hour seminars. The sessions feature meetings with outstanding faculty, business leaders and discussions of contemporary business and economic issues. Examples of speakers are HealthSouth, BMW, Blue Cross & Blue Shield, and BBVA Compass. These are excellent opportunities to talk to current employees on getting internships as well as full-time jobs. Students also gain project management experience through team projects that assist school organizations and expand the business honors program.
