Why Choose Honors?

Being a member of the Business Honors cohort has given me the opportunity to learn about business in a new way. Rather than learning through textbooks and lectures, I have been challenged to work and learn in groups, directly with professors, and independently. Through these groups I’ve developed some of my closest friendships. I have gotten to know distinguished faculty members both inside and outside the classroom.

My favorite experience through the business honors program was competing in the 2009 Nationwide Biz Quiz, a “business bowl” competition that draws teams from Top 25 undergraduate business schools throughout the country. To prepare, our three-person team read the Wall Street Journal every day for six weeks. The many great memories created during BizQuiz weekend will last a lifetime and in several ways will define my Miami experience.
