Starting and completing a Senior Honors Thesis is one of the most exciting and challenging tasks a student can pursue at the College of Management. An Honors Thesis represents the culmination of a successful academic career; it offers an opportunity to integrate all the knowledge and skills learned to date, while pushing students to apply that knowledge to an issue that is specific and relevant. Honors Thesis students work with an esteemed faculty from one of the Management disciplines: Finance, Accounting, Management, Marketing, Information Science and Operations. This mentoring relationship between student and faculty can bring out the best in both, sometimes leading to a collaboration that is published in an academic journal for other professionals in the field, or in a journal of practice for executives, managers and policy-makers at the leading edge of business.
The College of Management Honors Thesis program is open to seniors who have demonstrated excellence in core courses and in their major concentration.
