Carl H. Lindner Honors-PLUS

The Carl H. Lindner Honors-PLUS Program is a unique and challenging honors program within the Carl H. Lindner College of Business at the University of Cincinnati. The emphasis of the program is not solely academic, but also stresses work ethic, integrity, good citizenship, leadership skills and communication skills. Although students accepted to the program possess exceptional academic records, their selection is also predicated on demonstrated involvement in extracurricular activities which may include athletics, student government, school publications, volunteer and service activities, and other evidence of leadership and a desire to give back to their institutions and communities.

The program’s goal is development of the PLUS criteria:

  • Promise as a business professional;
  • Leadership in school and community activities;
  • Understanding of the global marketplace and diverse cultures; and
  • Success through talent, commitment, dedication, and effort.

Thanks to the generous contributions of Carl H. Lindner Jr., The Procter & Gamble Company, EY and many other corporate and individual donors, all Lindner Honors-PLUS students receive merit scholarships sufficient to cover in-state tuition.

Lindner Honors-PLUS includes honors coursework in written and oral communication skills, interviewing skills, and business etiquette.  Honors seminars also cover business ethics, the history of American business, entrepreneurship skills and character-based leadership.  Lindner Honors-PLUS students are active campus and community leaders as well.

Lindner Honors-PLUS graduates are recognized for their academic preparation, their extensive work experience, their work ethic, and the exposure they have had to global business.  The well-rounded education they receive has resulted in our graduates being placed in prestigious graduate programs, and finding rewarding careers upon graduation.  Their balanced preparation in analytical and soft skills positions them well to pursue many divergent opportunities after their time at UC.
