How do I achieve Honors?
Quantic MBA and Executive MBA students can earn the Honors distinction upon graduation.
Students who graduate on time with a final score in the top 10% of their cohort will receive Honors. Students' transcripts will read "Pass With Honors" for those who earn the distinction. Apart from the Honors distinction, as Quantic operates on a pass/fail basis, there are no class or personal ranks to provide. Please note that all grades are percentage-based, and not issued as letter grades or GPA.
Students must also pay their $45 graduation fee on time to remain eligible for Honors. For more information regarding this fee, please click here.
Students who graduate behind schedule are not eligible to receive this distinction. Additionally, students who commit a major Code of Conduct violation are not eligible for the honors distinction.
For all cohorts starting after August 1, 2021, students who either commit a major violation of our Plagiarism Policy or violate the policy more than once (whether a major or minor infraction) will be ineligible to receive Honors. We define a major violation as significant direct copying of sources or other violation necessitating the completion of an alternative case study.
Also for cohorts starting after August 1, 2021, in order to be eligible for Honors, students must submit all outstanding projects and presentations no later than the final day of the scheduled curriculum (the last day of Specialization Period 3 for EMBA, the ISDP due date for MBA). Students who submit projects and presentations after this date will be ineligible to receive honors.
Students who are ineligible to receive honors maintain ineligibility even if deferring to a future cohort.
