"I have a passion for business, however it didn’t take me long to realise that so too did thousands of graduates each year. Honours offered me an opportunity to place myself in a unique position in an increasingly competitive market."
– Aislinn Bakker, Bachelor of Business (Honours) in Accounting
Looking for a way to make your degree go further? Undertaking an Honours degree allows you to delve deeper into your area of specialty, undertaking at least one thesis subject that encourages focused research under key members of faculty in the Business School, as well as in-depth coursework with a cohort of like-minded and high-achieving students.
This opportunity allows you to take a step into UTS Business School’s world-class research community at an undergraduate level, and to develop a network among your peers and teachers that will give you an edge against competitors both in your career and in further study.
UTS Business School offers Honours degrees in accounting, finance, economics, management and marketing. Applicants must have completed a UTS Business School Bachelor degree (or an equivalent) with an overall credit average and an average mark of 70 (or equivalent for non-UTS students) in the discipline area in which the honours degree is to be awarded. To find out more about qualifying for this course, see Admission Requirements on the course pages for Bachelor of Business (Honours), Bachelor of Accounting (Honours) and Bachelor of Management (Honours).
There are also scholarships available for students undertaking study in our Honours programs.
"I had learned that the Honours program gives students the opportunity to form contacts with potential employers through your studies for future job prospects, so I was very keen to hopefully secure a job through the networking associated with my thesis work. The idea of being able to really sink my teeth into one large project also really appealed to me. Your thesis has to address a gap in the current literature, and so my work is adding to the scholarly knowledge, and will actually have an impact, which is quite an exciting opportunity."
