Business Honors Program
Each year, Business Honors students have the opportunity to study abroad. As long as each student is in good academic standing with the Business Honors Program, they will receive a $2,000 scholarship to help offset the cost of the study abroad trip During these trips, they learn and gain first-hand experience about the global business environment.
