The BAdvBus(Hons) is a 4 year degree aimed at high achieving students seeking an advanced option to study business. Students can select from two pathways: the professional pathway allows students to take up to three majors from the Business School's specialist teaching areas of: accounting, business information systems, finance, human resources, international business, marketing, or two majors created exclusively for this program - business analytics, and entrepreneurship and innovation; while the research pathway is offered via a thesis for those students who may wish to enter a PhD.

As this was a new program in 2018, due to the rollout of courses it may take longer than anticipated for students with credit to complete the program requirements. For this reason, students applying to change into the BAdvBus(Hons) program from another undergraduate program, and/or applying for credit on the basis of previous studies are strongly advised to contact the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law before making a final decision.
