Global Business Honors Program

The four-year Global Business Honors Program (GBHP) selects incoming freshmen with stellar high school academic records and prepares them for high-level roles in the world’s most dynamic firms and organizations. The approximately 25 students in each GBHP class form a close-knit community of friends and scholars.

GBHP core curriculum courses are especially rigorous and in-depth. They include business mathematics, micro- and macroeconomics, business law, and financial management. In addition to their coursework, participants travel together on intercontinental trips: to London as freshmen, and to countries such as Chile and China in the two following years. The international experiences expose students to the global marketplace and the variation of business environments across borders. Over the course of their junior and senior years, GBHP students select a business topic of interest and, working individually or in small groups, complete an original research project with the help of a faculty adviser. Some resulting papers have been selected for presentation at undergraduate research conferences.

Global Business Honors Program Highlights

  • Each semester, students take two honors courses and three courses from the regular curriculum.
  • By graduation, students have experienced business in four continents—Asia, Europe, South America, and North America—through a combination of their Rose Hill semesters and expenses-paid GBHP trips.
  • GBHP groups visit top-ranked companies and business organizations in New York and overseas.
  • Career-development programs hone participants’ “soft skills,” such as interviewing, networking, international business etiquette, and verbal presentation.
