The Dean's Honours Program is a study program for high-achieving students, offering you financial support to complete both your Bachelor of Business degree and honours.

Dean’s Honours domestic students will be awarded a scholarship with a total value of $20 000 paid over the four-year program. Once you apply for the Bachelor of Business (Dean’s Honours Program) course you do not need to apply separately for this scholarship.

Why choose this course?

An honours degree signals to potential employers that you are someone with exceptional ability, motivation and commitment to your field. It gives you the chance to further integrate the practical and conceptual knowledge gained through your degree.

As an honours graduate, you can clearly demonstrate an ability to undertake rigorous independent research. Development of these skills will differentiate you from your peers in the employment market.

You may even discover your potential for research work and consider the opportunity to pursue an academic career through PhD studies. A good result in your honours program provides you with direct entry into our PhD program.

Even if you do not undertake the scholarship program, you can still complete an honours year at the end of your Bachelor of Business. Students who graduate from the Bachelor of Business with a grade point average of 5.5 or higher will be eligible to enrol in the Bachelor of Business (Honours) (BS63).
