Business Honors Program

Miami University, the Farmer School of Business, and the Honors College provide an environment that accomplishes two goals: It offers the structure necessary to facilitate the transition from high school to college, and it gives students the freedom to begin to explore their academic interests. Business Honors offers a flexible and welcoming atmosphere to students, equipping them with the knowledge and skills for life beyond college.

Set Yourself Apart

The Farmer School of Business Honors Program is designed to complement the Honors College and includes both curricular and co-curricular experiences. Curricular experiences are incorporated throughout our four-year academic program and include required and elective courses. Co-curricular experiences follow a similar timeline and feature numerous opportunities such as participating in both the University's Undergraduate Associate Program and the University's Undergraduate Research Forum
