The Embry-Riddle Honors Program is an academic enrichment program for top academic achievers. It provides students with exceptional backgrounds the opportunity to enhance their education in their programs of study, and to contribute to the University and community in a number of organized ways.
"The Honors Program at Embry-Riddle augmented my college experience in ways that I could not have imagined as an incoming student. It presented tremendous opportunities in the forms of research, conference, and seminars that challenged me to push myself as a student, as a professional, and as an individual. Moreover, I met exceptional people and forged great friendships in this program, and the unwavering support from the Honors faculty enhanced my experience all the more. This program most certainly served as the keystone of my years at Embry-Riddle."
For her academic excellence, involvement in research projects, leadership in student organizations, service to the campus and community, and close involvement in Honors Program activities and initiatives, Caitlin received the Outstanding Honors Program Graduate, College of Business award. The award was presented by Dr. Bert Zarb in April 2009 during the Academic Spring Awards Ceremony.

The Honors Program in the College of Business has been designed to give a highly selective group of business students interested in aviation/aerospace and related industries the opportunity to experience an individualized course of study enhancing their general educational and campus experience. Working closely with these students, Honors faculty integrate opportunities for applied and theoretical research with co-op and internship programs in the student's particular area of interest. The goal of the Honors Program in the College of Business is to provide the widest range of opportunities for students to apply the knowledge they have gained from small class interaction with faculty and their fellow students to the business world in general as well as aviation/aerospace and related industries.
On matriculation to the University, students will be introduced to their primary Honors faculty and begin the process of planning their academic career in the College. This experience will include:
- A personalized, contracted series of Honors academic experiences designed to satisfy the nine credit hours of Honors required in the College of Business
- Interaction with guest speakers and Industry Advisory Board members
- Research opportunities leading to a publishable paper on a topic of interest
- Opportunities to participate in applied business research with a faculty mentor
