Global Business Honors Program

The four-year Global Business Honors Program (GBHP) selects incoming first-year students 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, statistics, and financial management. In addition to their coursework, participants travel together on intercontinental trips: to London during sophomore year and to either Chile or China in their junior year. 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

  • Students take honors-only sections of selected business and liberal core courses. 
  • By graduation, students have experienced business on three continents—Europe, Asia/South America, and North America—through a combination of their NYC semesters and expenses-paid GBHP trips.
  • Career-development programs hone participants' "soft skills," such as interviewing, networking, international business etiquette, and verbal presentation.
