How To Apply

IBE Honors Program students will be chosen based on academic potential (as indicated by their OSU application) and responses to IBE application essay or video questions. The primary goals of the application process are to:

  1. Determine whether students have an understanding of the goals & objectives of the IBE program.
  2. Assess whether students can demonstrate an ability and willingness to work with others from a variety of backgrounds in a constructive and professional manner.

The IBE program selectively recruits a cohort of thirty-six students each year. Applicants must apply for and be accepted into the College of Engineering Honors Program or Fisher College of Business Honors Program at Ohio State to be eligible.

Students admitted into one of the above honors programs will receive an email in their OSU inbox with more information about the IBE Application in the winter/spring season before their freshman year (see the “Application Timeline” tab for more details).
