Honors for Business/Engineering Students

<p>The only honors program I have been able to find at UMich is LSA (which I understand is for those in the College of Arts and Sciences)</p>

<p>Are their honors programs for Ross and/or the Engineering School?</p>

<p>Do they require additional applications or are they by invite only?</p>


<p>there's no need to have one.
Getting into Ross makes you an honors student, there's some decent competition there.
Being able to get through 4 years of engineering also make you honors, you have no idea how you are going to drop out if you aren't good at it/study well for it.</p>

<p>Yeah as bearcats stated above, it's basically implied that Ross and Engineering are above and beyond. To get into Ross you generally have to have about a 3.65 GPA at LSA which is not exactly a walk in the park, and as I'm sure bearcats would agree with me, the majority of the students in the engineering school scored 34+ on the ACT in math, scored 30+ overall on the ACT and probably got at least a 4 on the AP Physics B or C unless you are some unknown talent in math and science you will not have trouble finding smart, driven students around you.</p>

<p>Yeah, I never really thought about that... That makes sense. Thanks, guys.</p>

<p>there is an "Engineering Global Leadership (EGL) Honors Program", Michigan</a> Engineering | Honors Programs, which seems quite interesting! would some michigan experts like to give some details on that plzz?</p>

<p>EGL is hard to get in, and hard to stay in. you need a 3.6 cum GPA and major GPA to apply, and 50% get in; after that you need to maintain a 3.5( i believe) to stay in. You get a masters and a business core (note: not minor/major). You will complete a tauber project during the summer of 4th year and get your master by 5th year. Grads are highly recruited by M/B/B and place 60% into strat consulting. but all in all, dont bank on that.</p>

<p>Wow, a cum average of 3.6?! Does that apply to all kids? I understand that in Cornell the average Engineering GPA is 3.0. I guess I might have assumed that it's the same for most.</p>

<p>Does anyone know the average GPA of engineering students?</p>

<p>2.8 according to advisor. obviously it applies to all engineering kids because only engineering kids can apply</p>

<p>Amazing, then that program is definitely no joke! Ha, I missed what the "E" in "EGL"stands for. :P</p>

<p>thx for answers and sry for hijacking XD</p>

<p>man thats an impressive program ...r ppl graduating from EGL get more regards by job recruiters and better prospect in job market?</p>

<p>ps whats the tauber project?</p>

<p>im not an engineer so im probably not the best source, but im pretty sure every engineer i know who got a consulting internship at mckinsey this year was in the egl program, if that says anything about potential job ops.</p>

<p>the website for the program has some rough historical career placement data for the egl program. Michigan</a> Engineering | Placement Statistics</p>
