BLP Cohort 2012-2013

The Business Leadership Program (BLP) is open to all sophomore business and Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM) students who meet the minimum GPA of 2.75. Information about the BLP is sent to all students, but most students are recruited through faculty and staff recommendations.

The 2012–2013 academic year was the first year of the BLP. In spring 2012, we accepted 21 business students into the Business Leadership Program. The cohort included students with a variety of interests and backgrounds; however self-motivation, some experience with leadership, and desire to achieve one’s goals were common threads among the students selected. During spring 2013, we accepted 32 business and HRM students to join the BLP as the 2013–2014 cohort.

Our inaugural cohort participated in a variety of events over the course of the year.
