Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) (BCom(Hons))
|Credit Points Required|
In some of the more specialised careers open to the faculty's graduates, employers may be looking for a higher level of specialisation that is not provided in a three-year pass degree. Similarly, if students want to qualify for specialist postgraduate research study, a pass degree is not normally sufficient. For all graduates, a four-year honours degree considerably enhances the quality of a qualification which singles out students to an employer as having exceptional ability. Honours involves the completion of an additional year of study after the completion of the the Bachelor of Commerce pass degree.
After completing the requirements for the pass degree (and attaining results which satisfy the entry requirements for the award of honours), students may commence their honours year specialising in one of the following areas:
- Business Information Systems
- Commercial Law
- Industrial Relations and Human Resource Management
- International Business
- Quantitative Business Analysis; or
- Other areas of study from other faculties (as approved by the University of Sydney Business School)
For further details regarding completing the honours year in a specific subject area students should contact the honours coordinator in the particular discipline area concerned.
