FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Friday, Feb. 27, 2015

Hudson Valley Community College will begin offering a new Business honors program for high-achieving students this fall.

The college already offers two Liberal Arts and Science HonorScholar programs - Humanities and Social Science and Math and Science – which are designed for academically advanced students who plan to transfer to top-tier, four-year colleges or universities. The new Business Administration honors track will follow the same model.

Students will be immersed in an academic environment of small classes and interdisciplinary coursework. HonorScholar courses will be linked to a variety of extracurricular activities and will include a capstone project and an internship. Graduates of the program will be well prepared for transfer to some of the top business schools in the region.

Applicants to the Business Administration HonorScholar program must demonstrate a strong overall academic record with a minimum cumulative high school average of 90 and a minimum overall score of 1100 on the math and verbal portions of the SAT. An interview is recommended prior to admission.

For more information, contact the Business Administration Department at (518) 629-7225 or the Admissions Office at (518) 629-7309; or on campus in the Guenther Enrollment Services Center, Room 223.
