Gary J. Sbona Honors Program
The Gary J Sbona Honors Program (SHP) is one of the best undergraduate college programs in the country! The SHP provides students with real world work experience in the context of a College course (practicum). The program prepares students for working in business by providing them with an opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real business problems. Students work in teams directly with senior level management to come up with solutions to problems that will actually be implemented by the business. Faculty and students review proposed projects submitted by businesses to scope the project, clarify issues, agree on desired outcomes, and then execute the project.
There is no better way to prepare for your career in business than to work on real business problems using the knowledge you have gained from your course work. You will be guided by your professor and supervised by business professionals. This “on the job training” is highly valued by potential employers and will help you stand out from the crowd.
This is a truly unique program and opportunity for companies and students alike and we invite you to explore the web site and get acquainted with the program!
