Riley Murphy of Hopewell Township is among 18 members of The University of Scranton class of 2024 who began the Jesuit school’s four-year Business Honors Program, a selective program geared toward highly-motivated undergraduate students interested in pursuing academic excellence in business.
Students enrolled in the Business Honors Program, which is one of Scranton’s five programs of excellence, undergo four years of honors studies. The first component is academic with curriculum designed to develop the knowledge and skills needed for success. Students complete honors study in areas such as accounting, analytics, economics, finance, international business, management, marketing, and operations. The second component promotes personal and professional development through Jesuit-inspired co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that emphasize experiential learning and service. Students take part in a specially designed orientation program and complete requirements as a cohort in a challenging, meaningful way and graduate with the distinguished achievement of honors.
Murphy is majoring in finance at Scranton. He graduated from Hopewell Valley Central High School in June, 2020.
