Fisher College of Business is dedicated to maintaining a reputation as one of the top public business schools in the United States. In keeping with this commitment to excellence, Fisher College of Business is pleased to offer the Business Honors Learning Community in partnership with Student Life's Residence Life.

Business Honors is designed to give honors students the opportunity to participate in experiential learning and community service with peers, faculty, staff and members of the business community. Students will have significant interaction with a focus company's representatives. Key parts of this honors program focus on career development, community service and building leadership skills.

"The most beneficial thing for me about the BHLC has been the 25 or so instant friends I made from the moment I stepped on campus. Being from out-of-state, it has been nice having a group of friends in similar classes with similar interests, and you become pretty close with them. I now have close friends that I will be seeing in Fisher for the next four years, and I know that will come in handy."
