Did you enjoy researching your assignments during your bachelor's degree? Do you want to learn more about a specific field of business studies?  The Bachelor of Business (Honours) degree at UNSW Canberra provides the opportunity to do both. You will deepen your critical thinking and communication skills and give yourself a key advantage over your peers as you begin your career. 

Continuing your studies with an Honours degree in Business will challenge you to develop a greater understanding of why business practices are the way they are. Instead of just knowing that a certain business process is better, you’ll be able to articulate why, as well as look for ways to make further improvements in the business world.
