The HCB Passport Program is designed to give business majors the opportunity to gain critical knowledge and skills not always available in the classroom, but vital to "rounding out" the ideal graduate seeking to enter a professional career.
The passport should serve as a reminder of the Harrison College of Business' commitment to your success beyond the classroom.
