Undergraduate business majors may earn business honors. Any student enrolled in the VCU Honors College and in the business foundation program or with a major within the School of Business is eligible to participate.

The mission of the Business Honors Program is to provide a challenging experience for high-ability School of Business students that boosts creativity, strategic thinking, teamwork and leadership in collaboration with the VCU Honors College.

The Business Honors Program produces exceptional business graduates who are prepared to excel in any environment of their choosing. It will achieve this by:

  • Fostering a culture of intellectual curiosity and achievement

  • Creating long-term, cohesive relationships within a community of highly motivated VCU students

  • Partnering with local industry leaders to provide internships, seminars and professional mentoring

To earn business honors, students must complete business honors courses and fulfill all of the requirements to graduate with University Honors. Students who enter The Honors College with fewer than 54 credits must complete at least 15 credit hours of business honors courses. Students who enter The Honors College with 54 or more credit hours must complete at least 12 credit hours of business honors courses. Honors core requirements also vary depending on the number of credit hours earned at the time of admission to the VCU Honors College. Transfer students and freshmen are equally encouraged to apply. For complete details on honors program admission and graduation requirements, see honors.vcu.edu.

Current honors course offerings, including business honors courses are listed on The Honors College website.

Business honors graduates will be recognized at commencement with special regalia, and the distinction “Business Honors” will be noted on the transcript.

Inquires should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Studies in the School of Business in Room B-1100 of Snead Hall.
