The Business Administration Honors Contract program offers students the opportunity to tailor their honors experience by selecting an industry for in-depth study.
The Fisher Industry Clusters Program, the first of its kind in the nation, is designed to encourage students to dive into a specific industry, apply the theories and tools learned in their other coursework to solve today’s industry program, and to standout in a crowded marketplace. Honors Contract enhances the Industry Cluster experience. Students will commit to a two-year Industry Cluster engagement.
During their junior year, a select group of honors students will participate in a cluster and attend a series of workshops on team leadership and industry research practices. In their second, and senior year in the program, honors students will work closely with the respective faculty expert, and participate in a yearlong Honors seminar designed to further develop critical thinking, communication and leadership skills. Each student will write and present an individual industry research report in fall, and will be assigned a team of junior students to mentor on a real-world project in spring.
Each year, up to 10 honors students will be selected for each Industry Cluster. The clusters for 2016 include: Business Analytics, Consulting, Consumer Package Goods, Energy & Sustainability, Health Care, Manufacturing, Middle Market, and Retail.
Eligible second-year students can apply to the Accounting Honors, Honors Cohort and Honors Contract programs each February. Students are welcome to apply to more than one program, but are required to indicate their first, second, and third choice. Notifications will be sent in time for autumn term scheduling.
