Business Honors

Undergraduate business majors may earn business honors. Any student enrolled in the VCU Honors College and in the business foundation program or with a major within the School of Business is eligible to participate.

The mission of the Business Honors Program is to provide a challenging experience for high-ability School of Business students that boosts creativity, strategic thinking, teamwork and leadership in collaboration with the VCU Honors College.

The Business Honors Program produces exceptional business graduates who are prepared to excel in any environment of their choosing. It will achieve this by:

To earn business honors, students must complete business honors courses and fulfill all of the requirements to graduate with University Honors. Students who enter The Honors College with fewer than 54 credits must complete at least 15 credit hours of business honors courses. Students who enter The Honors College with 54 or more credit hours must complete at least 12 credit hours of business honors courses. Honors core requirements also vary depending on the number of credit hours earned at the time of admission to the VCU Honors College. Transfer students and freshmen are equally encouraged to apply.

The VCU Bulletin is in transition! As we move from this first iteration of our online Bulletin to a new product and process, what you find on this website is information for the 2014-15 academic year.

While much of the curricular information remains the same, changes that were approved with the effective date of fall 2015 will not be reflected on this website. Prospective students may wish to contact the school or department that administers their program of interest in order to discuss the most current curriculum and concentration options.

Enrolled students who are completing their studies under an effective Bulletin may continue to access the archives at, where past Bulletins are available to reference or download.

Our anticipated launch of the new VCU Bulletin is July 2015. To follow our progress, visit the new Bulletin blog.
