The Bachelor of International Business (Honours) builds on undergraduate studies in International Business. It comprises three compulsory research methodology courses, one elective course, and the completion of a research thesis.
The research thesis, taken over the entire year with the major emphasis occurring after completion of the coursework, is the critical part of the program as it provides evidence of the student's ability to undertake original research under supervision. Candidates attend the weekly Research School of Management Seminar Series, and present a seminar on their proposed thesis towards the end of their first semester.
Graduates from ANU have been rated as Australia's most employable graduates and among the most sought after by employers worldwide.
The latest Global Employability University Ranking, published by the Times Higher Education, rated ANU as Australia's top university for getting a job for the fourth year in a row.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate a sound knowledge and critical understanding of research design and methods in the field of international business
- Apply that knowledge to the development of a research proposal and research plan
- Develop the capacity to perform high-level independent research
- Exhibit in-depth knowledge of their chosen research topic
