Honours is an extra year of study that builds on the knowledge gained in your undergraduate degree and gives you the skills to undertake independent research. Students in our honours program are exposed to the latest research and cutting edge developments in their field of study.
An honours degree gives you a competitive advantage in your career, and is the first step to pursuing further studies, such as master's degree or a PhD.
Monash Business School offers a one-year, Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) program for selected students. The honours program gives you the opportunity to study aspects of your undergraduate major in more depth.
Programs contain a mix of advanced theory, research training, a research project or thesis and coursework units.
Specialisations under the Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) include accounting, econometrics, economics, finance, management, marketing, actuarial studies and business analytics.
Honours graduates have special expertise valued by employers and therefore have a competitive advantage in the job market. The honours year also prepares you to undertake higher degrees by research including the Master of Philosophy or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).
If you're enrolled in a Monash double degree course and who have not yet completed the requirements for the two degrees, you may be eligible to enrol in this honours program once you have completed 144 points of study, including the normal requirements for the Bachelor degree containing the intended honours discipline.
