UTS MBA Course Overview

The UTS MBA is designed for early career professionals seeking to either extend their knowledge and capabilities into managerial roles, or to change careers into a new field of business. The flexible 16-subject program features a core of eight subjects that introduce students to key managerial and business concepts, with the eight remaining subjects allowing a choice of major, sub-majors and or electives. All MBA subjects are approved by an industry board that insists on ‘relevance to workplace’ as a pre-eminent subject design principle. The MBA provides knowledge and skills that are essential for superior management performance.

The UTS MBA aims to enable early career professionals to either prepare for more senior roles within their current field, or to switch to new fields of business management. This includes general management, function and specialist skills development.

General management skills develop expertise in strategic thinking, critical analysis, developing and implementing business plans, decision-making under uncertainty, understanding organisational dynamics, motivating others, effective communication, leadership, and promoting change in dynamic environments.

Functional skills develop competency in a number of key disciplines including accounting, finance, marketing and human resources management. Specialist skills are introduced in areas such as: international marketing; human resource management; management in the public, private and international spheres; tourism; sport; arts management; engineering management; and information technology.
