Honours is an advanced undergraduate degree for students who are keen to pursue further study in an intensively supported and well-structured program of independent study. Mentoring and an individualised supportive learning environment are key features of the honours in marketing program. Students also benefit from working with a small cohort of similarly motivated and high-achieving students.

The thesis component offers truly personalised learning, while the taught units offer exceptional skills development. Your honours supervisor also plays an important role in mentoring you and reviewing your research throughout the year.
