About the Program

In order to recognize exceptional students in the Management major, the Department of Management has created an honors in the major recognition for the Management degree. This distinction:

  • Provides an indicator to potential employers of a student’s effort and willingness to excel by gaining a variety of educational experiences.

To qualify for the honors in management recognition, all students must complete the management degree program consistent with the requirements of their catalog year and meet the qualifications outlined below. If earned, a student will receive an indicator on their transcript.

Award Process

Each semester the Management Department will review all graduating management students to assess eligibility for the honors in management recognition. In order to qualify for the award, you must be in your last semester and you MUST register for graduation. Our screening process looks only at students graduating in the current semester, so if you are not registered to graduate you will not be considered for the award. All students that qualify for the recognition will be notified through their student email when the review is complete.


Our review will begin shortly after the application for graduation closes. This is typically around mid-term of each semester. Our review will typically conclude about three weeks prior to graduation. If you are enrolled in a qualifying activity during your final semester, you need to verify that your participation is recorded with the specific administrative office.
