Australian business leaders share how honours shaped their success.
The University of Sydney Business School offers undergraduate Honours degrees in most of the subject areas available for study.
At the Business School, Honours is an additional year of study available to students who have completed their undergraduate degree with outstanding results. The Honours year involves a combination of coursework and a thesis, which introduces you to the world of academic research in an area of particular interest to you.
The Business School also offers Joint and Double Honours. For more information on those degrees, please see the Honours preparation page.
In some of the more specialised careers open to our graduates, employers may look for a higher-level of study that is not provided in a three-year degree. Similarly, if you want to qualify for postgraduate research study, you will usually need to have completed Honours. For all graduates, an Honours degree considerably enhances the quality of your undergraduate qualification, and singles you out to an employer as having exceptional ability.
The minimum entry requirements for Honours at the Business School is a completed pass degree with a minimum Weighted Average Mark (WAM) of 65 per cent across all units of study taken, and a minimum WAM of 70 per cent in units completed in the major relating to the intended Honours year.
Some disciplines require students to undertake pre-Honours units of study, or may require a higher academic standard. For specific information relating to the area in which you would like to undertake further study, please see the Discipline Honours Information panel on this page.
