  • Honours

    January 1995 - December 1995

    The Honours Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com. (Hons) or B.Com. (Hons) or H.B.Com. or H.B.Comm.) is further advanced. It may consist of a four-year program or of a one-year program taken subsequent to a three-year Bachelor's degree. The degree requires additional academic courses to be completed with higher academic performance standards and may also require a researched thesis component; the one-year program is often focused exclusively on a single subject-area. The Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree often serves as an abridgement between the undergraduate program and postgraduate programs, including the Master of Commerce (M.Com. or M.Comm.) and the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees.

    The Bachelor of Commerce degree is designed to provide students with a wide range of managerial skills, while at the same time building competence in a particular area of business. Most universities therefore, plan the degree such that in addition to their major, students are exposed to general business principles, taking courses in accounting, finance, business management, human resources, (business) statistics, marketing, and economics; some programs also require (introductory) calculus and information systems.
