Miller Business Honors Program

During this inaugural One Ball State Day, we are excited to also launch the Miller Business Honors Program fund! After having celebrated our first successful decade, we look forward to growing in both quantity and quality in the coming years. Please consider supporting the next generation of future Miller Scholars.


This fund will be used to support future Miller Scholars just like you! Specifically, we foresee this fund being used for a wide array of opportunities to provide students the best possible experience across their college journey focusing on experiential endeavors. Our priorities are:



The Miller Scholarship has grown from 10 to 15 scholarships. We seek to continue that trajectory in being able to award the life-changing Miller Scholarship to every member of future cohorts. As you are aware these scholarships relieve students and family members of worry concerning tuition costs. Instead, students are able to not only fully focus on academic and career aspirations, but also engage more thoroughly in on-campus involvement & leadership as well as off-campus internships, study abroad, research, and more! These activities significantly prompt personal growth and professional maturity key to major & career decision-making, bringing awareness of other cultures and business practices and developing advantages upon entering the professional workforce.



To further elevate the Honors Program, we seek to present a broader set of experiences to our high-achieving students. You may recall hearing someone speak about workplace topics and participating in developmental seminar and workshops. We see to introduce these advanced students to higher-profile speakers, more geographically diverse company visits, and enhanced career preparation activities.


Support Senior Experience

Each year this unique offering is more thoroughly integrated with the Capstone course in Business Strategy & Decision-Making. As this component has evolved, students begin their efforts prior to the official start of the course and it is now connected to the course through multiple case studies. The on-site experience includes an impactful business communication exercise, an immersive review, and evaluation of services, and independent or small group investigation of overall business practices. As costs rise and time becomes scarcer, the ability of students to be able to participate in this culminating experience grows more challenging. (FYI be on the lookout for an alumni-specific announcement related to this program component!)
