The Bachelor of Business (Honours) course provides students who have demonstrated academic ability with the opportunity to pursue their undergraduate studies to an advanced level, to deepen their intellectual understanding in their major area of study, and to develop their research skills.

The Honours course is a recognised point of entry into postgraduate research studies. Students concentrate on their chosen area of study, gaining a better understanding of the academic discipline that they study and the research techniques appropriate to the discipline. The requirement to complete a substantial original piece of research for their dissertation ensures that honours graduates develop abilities to conceptualise problems, devise research strategies and carry out individual research work under the supervision of a member of staff with expertise in the area.

Undertaking the Honours course can also assist by providing a point of differentiation when seeking employment, as the course offers students the opportunity to extend their knowledge in their chosen discipline and to specialise in an area within it. The course's strong orientation to research instructs students in the principles and techniques of original research and prepares them for areas of professional employment in which conceptual, organisational and research skills are in demand.
