Accounting Honours Thesis (BUSN4500)

Students should speak with the program convener about the mode of delivery for their thesis studies

This course is designed for Honours students to undertake independent research in accounting. Students will conduct research in their chosen topic under the supervision of academic staff with relevant research interest. Students will be required to  identify research problems, review and synthesize relevant literature, develop an appropriate research design, collect and analyse data (where relevant), and present their findings effectively in a written thesis.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
