Build leadership skills and gain real-world experience by enrolling in the Business Administration Bradley Honors Program (BS) at Southern New Hampshire University. This unique program, formerly named the 3Year Honors Program, allows you to use the fourth year to earn your master's degree or start your career.
Part of the University Honors Program, the Business Administration Bradley Honors Program (BS) is an accelerated Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program - not a four-year program condensed into three years. By enrolling in this innovative program, you'll be able to:
As a Bradley 3-year honors business administration major, you'll act as a consultant through the New Paradigm Design experience, completing projects for real companies and organizations and gaining valuable professional and academic experience. Students recently have worked with Debra Keating Electrolysis, RE, New England Cupcakery, Granite United Way - ELS and Capital Region Food Program
The Business Administration Bradley Honors Program (BS), formerly the 3Year Honors Program, was renamed in honor of Dr. Marty Bradley, the chief architect and first director of the program. Bradley served as dean of the School of Business from 2002-08, leading the charge of competency-based education throughout the school, with the adoption of school-wide competencies in 2002.
This three-year honors program is unique as the courses are interdisciplinary "modules," rather than traditional three-credit courses, taught in the time frame of the regular semester. You'll take all your courses with the other three-year students in your year but live (or commute) and participate in activities with students from across the university, just like your peers. You'll earn the same number of credits (120) as students in four-year bachelor's degree programs.
The program integrates course content into unique learning experiences, with core courses satisfying general education and major requirements. For example, instead of taking Public Speaking as a separate course, three-year honors students fulfill the public speaking requirement through required class, client and public presentations. The program also incorporates liberal arts and business courses.
