Zicklin Undergraduate Honors Program

The Zicklin Undergraduate Honors Program is the only honors program at Baruch College that is focused exclusively on business education.  Its mission is to help the best and brightest Zicklin students become polished professionals who can compete effectively in the job market and go on to become leaders in their fields. To this end, Zicklin Honors offers advanced interdisciplinary seminars, networking opportunities, and skill-building workshops.  We have partnered with Executives on Campus to provide each student with an executive mentor.

Zicklin Honors students—known as Zicklin Scholars—enjoy a small college experience within Baruch College. As part of a cohort of honors students who take small seminar classes, study in their own honors lounge, and network with distinguished executive guests, our Zicklin Scholars are able to make friendships that will last a lifetime. These friendships are evident in our growing network of Zicklin Honors alums who are succeeding in organizations ranging from Goldman Sachs, Deloitte, Accenture, and Greenhill to the New York Federal Reserve. The Program Director, Program Advisor, and mentors work closely with students to guide them in their personal and career development. We help our students to achieve their potential; to become successful professionals with the highest ethical standards. We welcome applications from all Zicklin students with a minimum GPA of 3.6 who desire to work hard, accomplish a lot, and participate actively in our program.
