Dear Participant

This project involves exploring the value of Australian business Honours degrees by examining the perceptions of academics, Honours students/graduates, and industry.

Whilst Honours degrees are the main pathway for students interesting in pursuing doctoral studies in Australia, there has been relatively little research undertaken to examine the perceptions of Honours degrees. This project aims to better understand the value of Honours programs by gathering responses from students, academics, and industry and has obtained funding support through Federation Business School's Learning and Teaching Innovation Fund. Findings will be published in an academic journal.
