The Executive MBA and MBA programs at UTS Business School provide managers and aspirant managers with conceptual and theoretical knowledge across the full spectrum of business and managerial disciplines. Participants learn within a practice-based and applied framework utilising live case studies, guest lecturers from key industry partners, and real-world examples.
The MBA comprises 16 subjects, including 8 core and 8 electives, which can be taken as a major specialisation, 2 sub-majors or 1 sub-major and up to 4 electives. It can be studied full-time over 2 years or part time over a longer period. For students with a background degree in business or related fields, or with other postgraduate qualifications in business, exemptions are available. The MBA attracts graduates from a range of different fields and is open to applicants with a range of professional experience levels.
The Executive MBA is a two year part time program designed for busy managers. It comprises of 12 subjects – 9 core and 3 electives. Participants join a cohort and complete their degree usually within the one cohort, creating a close network of peers and valued confidants. Subjects include intensive residential workshops as well as weekend and weekday classes.
Some participants in both programs come with extensive work experience but without any prior university degree via the Graduate Certificate option. The Graduate Certificate consists of four of the core subjects and provided students achieve a sufficient mark across these subjects they can transfer seamlessly into the Master degree.
Study With the World's Best
A team of four MBA and Executive MBA students from UTS Business School, coached by Adjunct Professor Dr David Band, triumphed over fierce competition to be named the winners of the John Molson MBA International Case Study Competition in Montreal in January 2013. The competition is the oldest and largest of its kind, and brought together teams from 36 top business schools in 14 different countries to compete in a fast-paced and rigorous round-robin contest to analyse, evaluate and develop solutions to business cases using only their acquired knowledge, practical experience, personal skill and creative talents. 2013 marked the first year in which Australian universities participated in the competition, proving UTS Business School’s quality as an internationally competitive institution.
