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.
