Curriculum

The Huntsman Scholar Program requires students to take 10 courses and four co-curricular labs. The courses are part of the core requirements of the Huntsman School and provide a foundation for understanding business disciplines. The labs provide students with a deeper understanding of the four pillars of the Huntsman School, namely, ethical leadership, analytical rigor, global vision, and entrepreneurial spirit, and enable students to develop relationships with other students at the same juncture in the program.

Courses

Tailored classroom instruction through special Scholar sections of ten courses foundational to understanding the business world. These courses, a part of the Huntsman School’s core requirement, are smaller in size than typical sections of the courses and provide an opportunity for enriched experiences between faculty and students.

Labs

Rigorous co-curricular experiences, or labs, that combine classroom instruction and experiential activities. The focus of these labs is to deeply engage students around a set of behaviors that form the four strategic pillars of the Huntsman School. The labs are typically seven weeks long, and are designed to be taken sequentially, preferably one per year. The third-year global vision lab includes a fully-funded, faculty-led international experience.
