Program of Study

With a total requirement of 150 credits, the Honors Program follows existing undergraduate and graduate core requirements. The program requires completion of the University's current General Education Requirements and College of Business Core. The specific Program Core remains the same except that nine (9) business and free elective credits are replaced with an internship/capstone project with their current employer and two graduate courses: MGT 6501 Available Online , Organization Theory and Design and MGT 6503 Available Online , Leadership and Change Management. These graduate courses are used to complete the undergraduate requirements. Upon completion of the internship and the two graduate level courses, MGT 6501 Available Online  and MGT 6503 Available Online , the Honors student shall be considered a degree-seeking student in the Graduate Business Program, even though conferral of the undergraduate degree shall not occur until the remaining 30 credits are completed to fulfill the Graduate Business degree requirements. Students must maintain a GPA of 3.5 in the undergraduate and graduate programs. If not, the student is no longer part of the Honors Program.
