About Honors Cohort

The Business Administration Honors Cohort program at the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University offers selected students an intellectually challenging, academically rigorous program that encourages students to reach their full intellectual and personal potential.

In addition to academically challenging coursework and class discussion, cohort members will interact with business, policy and civic leaders from around the world. Classroom visits, video conferences, and other methods will be used to engage with leaders from across the world. The Honors Cohort Program is characterized by:

  • An emphasis on ethical issues facing business and society leaders will be stressed.
  • Concepts learned in other courses will be applied to challenges facing business leaders.
  • Examination of American business history will be used to further examine the issues we face today and the problems we may face in the future.
  • Students will be required to ponder difficult questions, discuss alternative solutions, and learn to question the world around them.
