The Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) builds on undergraduate studies in management and leadership. 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.
