The Honours program offered by the Department of Accounting and Finance provides students with an enhanced opportunity for careers in industry and/or academia, by providing advanced studies in accounting, finance, a combination of both and finance/econometrics. It is an opportunity to challenge and extend your knowledge and is different from anything you have previously experienced in your undergraduate studies. An honours degree provides you with analytical skills, problem-solving, strategic thinking, presentation and communication skills as well as personal development and career benefits.

An Honours degree provides you with enhanced employment opportunities. While some employers require an honours year, others recognise the attributes an honours graduate brings to the workforce. Honours is the first step towards a position at a university as well as higher degree (PhD) studies.

Honours classes are typically small and involve a high level of staff and student interaction. Students in Honours are exposed to the latest research and knowledge in the units chosen and develop research and presentation skills, as well as improving self-confidence and networking skills for the future.
