The UTSA College of Business inducted its first class of 28 students into the new Business Honors Program on February 15.
“We are happy to welcome our inaugural class of Business Honors students to this program,” said Rosa Garza-Girdy, assistant dean of undergraduate studies. “The program will feature both academic and co-curricular experiences. We look forward to building new traditions with these students.”
The program is open to all BBA majors in the College of Business and provides academically outstanding students with opportunities to benefit from an enriched first-class education. Business Honors students will take smaller classes taught by some of the best faculty in the college. Additionally, the program is designed to give our students a competitive edge in the job market.
“I joined this program because I knew it would provide me with greater challenges that would enrich my educational experiences,” said Rachael McCord, an inaugural member of the Business Honors Program and a finance major. “It will improve my preparation for the job market and will help me focus my education to meet the needs of employers.”
Business Honors students are required to complete a total of 18 hours of business honors coursework as well as participate in experiential learning activities throughout their undergraduate education.
