The University of Cincinnati’s Circle of Excellence program will provide an inimitable university honors experience centered upon service. Our unique service-oriented leadership development program promises to cultivate well-rounded business professionals with strong character who are grounded in ethical principles, an appreciation of diversity and inclusion, and desire to improve their communities.
What are the advantages of being in the Circle of Excellence?
- Access to honors sections of courses (core courses, specialty courses such as studios)
- Priority registration
- Eligibility for special study abroad grants ($500-1000 with applications each semester)
- Specialized Lindner Career Services events for high-achievers (e.g., Rising Star Program)
- Distinction valued by potential employers (for resume and on transcript)
A note on housing: please note that Circle of Excellence students do not receive honor's housing privileges. However, university housing does provide an opportunity for students to live on a themed floor – allowing students to live on all business major floors consisting primarily of freshmen and sophomore business students.
