The Bachelor of Business (Honours) program offers qualified students the opportunity for specialised study in business at an advanced level. The Honours program is a combination of coursework and research. The program aims to provide a post-degree level of study to widen students’ knowledge in one of the specialist areas in a business-related discipline offered by Federation Business School. It gives students the training necessary to conduct independent high-quality research in business and academic settings, cultivates analytical and critical skills and an awareness of emerging developments in business. The Honours program has been developed as a pathway for research and study at Masters or PhD level but can also provide a competitive edge in the marketplace.
