The Bachelor of Business (Honours) program from Federation University Australia offers qualified students the opportunity for specialised study in business at an advanced level. The Honours program is a combination of coursework and research. 


The Business (Honours) program from the Federation University Australia aims to provide a post-degree level of study to widen students’ knowledge in one of the specialist areas in a business-related discipline offered by Federation Business School. It gives students the training necessary to conduct independent high-quality research in business and academic settings, cultivates analytical and critical skills and an awareness of emerging developments in business.
