The Business Honors program is a rigorous, three-year, specialized course of study and programming within the Mendoza College of Business.

Business Honors Code of Ethics

As a part of Our Lady's university, the Business Honors Program expects all its members to abide by the University's code of conduct for students as outlined in Du Lac. As a Program whose mission is to form students who can be exemplars of virtue and academic achievement within the Mendoza College of Business and the wider University community, we also have higher standards for the behavior of our students, both inside and outside the classroom, than what is outlined in Du Lac. Students who fail to abide by Du Lac or act contrary to our mission may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from the Business Honors Program.
