Honors Program for Business Majors

McLaren Undergraduate School of Management

The Honors Program for undergraduate students is designed to recognize academically successful undergraduate students in the School of Management and bring students together for an enriched and elevated learning experience.

The Honors Program develops the whole person through social, professional, academic, and service opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom and gives students the opportunity to carry out USF's Jesuit Catholic values at the university and on their professional paths. Students selected for the program take Honors business core courses and also participate in supplemental experiences such as:

  • Experiential learning and industry tours at top organizations like Facebook, Pinterest, Avaya, and Autodesk
  • Networking opportunities through guest speaker series and alumni workshops and events
  • Professional development opportunities at conferences and national competitions
  • Service activities and student-led retreats

Being a part of the Honors Program has excelled my professional and academic career. I feel more prepared for the business world after I graduate from because of the many experiences that challenged me in and out of the classroom."
– Kenneth Cacacho '21,  Entrepreneurship and Innovation
