FAQ

If I elect to apply to Scholars and not Honors, am I still eligible to apply for the IBE Honors program?

Unfortunately no, application to the IBE Honors program is only available to those admitted into the Honors Business or Engineering program

Once in the IBE program, is it possible for me to change from an Engineering Major to a Business Major or vice-versa?

Yes, this is possible, in this instance it will be best to work with Amanda Crall and Kim Bader, the respective engineering and business honors advisors to accommodate your switch.

What is the target number of students for the incoming IBE class of students?

There are 36 seats available because of the selectivity of the IBE program. As an example, of the 36 offers made to the class of 2021 IBE cohort, 18 were to business and 18 were to engineering applicants. The number of each discipline accepted varies by year.

Are IBE students able to take off academic semesters to participate in a co-op rotation or study abroad?

While it is certainly possible, summer internships are encouraged more so than semester co-ops for our IBE students. The two semesters free for IBE students to participate in a co-op or study abroad are the spring semesters of their sophomore and junior years.
