The LEO Honor Society is the academic honor society of The Tim and Steph Busch School of Business. The society is inspired by the learned example of Pope Leo XIII who signed the charter for the Catholic University of America at its founding and whose encyclical, Rerum Novarum, led to the 1895 creation of the Department of Economics.  This department later became the Busch School of Business in 2013.  

The Society recognizes high achievement and extraordinary academic excellence.  Eligibility to join is determined at the end of each fall semester based on cumulative GPA.  The top 10% of each class of sophomores, juniors, and seniors are sent a formal invitation at the start of the spring semester to accept membership. 

Every Spring semester, a dinner is held to honor new and existing LEO members. Our LEO members are honored each year at commencement during the University’s Honors Convocation.
