UTS MBA (Advanced) Course Overview
The UTS Advanced MBA is a one-year program, co-developed, co-designed and co-delivered with industry partners from a range of sectors and organisations. It focuses on the development of the future of work skills: problem solving, critical thinking, digital literacy, communication, critical analysis, collaboration, and leadership. It has an innovative and adaptable structure that combines knowledge-developing short, focused subjects offered in blended mode with three project-based studios that enable learner-focused, experiential learning and intensive industry engagement, including coaching and mentoring.
The studios feature digital labs that introduce students to the key digital tools and methodologies needed to successfully operate in a digital environment and drive digital strategies. The Advanced MBA is bookended by two leadership labs which focus on assessing and developing students’ leadership skills, emotional and cultural intelligence and ability to lead a diverse workforce in intensive coaching and mentoring sessions.
The program introduces students to tools and methodologies from a range of disciplines by working with academics and industry experts from business, technological and social sciences backgrounds. This enables students to address creatively complex challenges and opportunities.
