Program Components

Miller Business Honors Program students benefit from a wide variety of distinct offerings and opportunities, and thus, are held to high standards. The following are required for continued participation:

  • Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2 (Miller Scholarship students must maintain a 3.4 cumulative GPA.)
  • Successful enrollment and completion of Honors Program curriculum
  • Active participation in all required Professional Development Programming
  • Expected to voluntarily participate and assist with wide-reaching opportunities related to networking, recruiting, social, and high-profile college events
  • Adhere to and uphold the Miller Business Honors Program Code of Ethics & Conduct


Our four-year curriculum consists of differentiated honors sections of the required business core courses. The curriculum provides access to accelerated and enriched business courses throughout degree progression. These courses are more stimulating and challenging but not necessarily more time-consuming or difficult.  The specialized curriculum allows you to take classes with other students like yourself in a small and enriched environment offering greater depth and breadth. The courses are filled with more discussion, more real-world cases, and more hands-on learning.

Professional Development Programming

Our Professional Development Programming runs in parallel to the academic curriculum, supplementing in-class learning with out-of-class skill development. The majority of these efforts are intended to best prepare students to engage in the internship and professional employment search and scheduled at times earlier than for a traditional student. Below are examples, most of which are required.

  • Professional development—Etiquette dinner, resume and cover letter writing, interviewing
  • Academic development—Personalized academic advising, film discussions, graduate school preparation, and introduction to national and international post-graduate scholarships
  • Networking—Personal interactions with corporate executives, advisory board members, and top alumni
  • Specialized offerings—Optional study abroad group program (approximately every three years), annual senior experience, company visits, student-run Honors Program Executive Board, and recruitment/outreach events
  • Social interactions—Executive Board and cohort-developed activities like tailgating, wallyball, dinners, & movie nights
