AUT encourages early application. This qualification will remain open until all places have been filled.
The Bachelor of Business (Honours) is a one-year postgraduate research programme for exceptional Bachelor of Business graduates. An honours degree demonstrates a high level of achievement that is recognised by employers in New Zealand and overseas and can lead to further postgraduate study. Employers recognise the rigour required for honours level study and the skills developed through independent research as key attributes in differentiating top talent.
As an honours student you develop postgraduate research skills and further your understanding of a specialist business field. You work closely with academic staff, researchers and other high-performing students in a learning environment that challenges you to excel.
To graduate with a Bachelor of Business (Honours), you must complete 120 points from specialisation papers, research methods paper(s), and a dissertation. This structure ensures that you can critically analyse and evaluate the research and professional literature, and begin your advanced studies in business with an appreciation of the current issues and controversies in the field. You also design and complete a piece of supervised research in a business discipline.
The outcomes for graduates of this programme are outlined in the Graduate Profile.
