Research & Honors

Undergraduate Research

The School of Business is situated in UCR, which is a leading R1 research university. This provides students the opportunity to participate in faculty-mentored research, scholarship, and creative activities as an undergraduate.

Every quarter, hundreds of UCR undergraduate students work with faculty on research and creative projects in the campus' libraries, studios, and laboratories, as well as in the community, in the field, and abroad.

For example, each Winter Quarter, select Business Administration students participate in the School of Business/Bourns Consultancy program, where business students team with engineering students and serve as consultants for bioengineering senior design projects. In this interdisciplinary program, business students work with their engineering "clients" to build a formal business plan document, including a competitive market and financial analyses, marketing strategies, and capital sourcing.

Undergraduate Honors Program

University Honors is designed for students who have shown through their own high achievement that they value intellectual challenges and want to be a part of an innovative, diverse, and demanding learning community. Students benefit from close interaction with Honors Faculty in small class settings, and with Professional Staff who provide developmental advising to help them optimize their educational experience at UCR.

High impact, experiential learning opportunities available to Honors students include; undergraduate research, scholarly and creative work, internships, service learning, and faculty-led co-curricular activities. In addition Honors students are supported by a strong peer leader support system, faculty mentorship, Honors scholarship opportunities, and preparation for prestigious scholarships and awards. These experiences are designed to prepare students for participation in a senior thesis project that advances knowledge in their discipline, culminating in an Honors Thesis.
