Program Structure

The new Business Honors Program (BHP) is organized around clusters of foundation, core, and capstone courses:

  • Foundation: Cross-functional learning communities that combine knowledge across departments and schools to develop essential business competencies from an applied, contemporary perspective - Understanding Business in the Digital Age, Managing Legal and Ethical Business Challenges, Building and Sustaining Business Relationships, and Planning and Control in Complex Organizations.
  • Core: Upper-level courses and field studies that concentrate on advanced business issues - Finance, Strategy, International Business, and Leadership Principles and Practice.
  • Capstone: Senior thesis in students’ major areas that allows them to pursue advanced study of a topic in their major and establish a competitive niche under the direction of a faculty mentor.

The BHP curriculum includes courses in all Lubin major areas of study: Accounting, Finance, Law, Management, and Marketing.

The program of study is synergistic with the Pforzheimer Honors College and fully satisfies curricular requirements.

The courses also satisfy university or school required courses so as to not overwhelm participating students.

The sequence includes accommodations for 5-Year Combined BBA-MBA students as per guidelines established by the Business Honors Program director and Accounting Department chairperson.
