Academic. Social. Professional. Philanthropic.
Honors business association
The Honors Business Association (HBA) at the University of Texas at Austin serves as the official student organization for the Business Honors Program at the McCombs School of Business. Since its inception in 1980, HBA has provided academic, professional, social, and philanthropic opportunities for its members. HBA strives to build up the strong sense of community within the Business Honors Program and to enhance the college experience for all BHP students. For three decades, the Honors Business Association has maintained a mix of professionalism, volunteerism, and fun. Above all else, HBA is, and always will be, a home for BHP students. Whether you are a freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, or alum, HBA will always have a warm fireplace (or so we wish) and sandwich (or whatever delicious food is being served at our meeting) ready.
Best of all, HBA is available to all BHP students free of dues.
So drop on by, bring a friend, and experience something new, exciting and happy.

Last Wednesday, HBA members ventured into the world of fine cheeses, jams, and cured meats at our latest DWAA. Our guide for the evening was Odile Du (BHP '09), whose expertise in cheeses led us to a night packed with a survey of some of the most interesting and appetizing combinations of cheese and toppings that any of our members had experienced thus far.
HBA ducked around corners and fought to the Blazer Tag death in this BHPhun event!
