What we do
Our goal is to create knowledge with impact - new knowledge that industry, government and community can apply to improve our businesses, economy and society.
UTS Business School is an urban treehouse in the heart of the city. The only Frank Gehry-designed building in Australia, it is more than just a physical space; its unconventional design reflects our unique approach to business education. At UTS, you'll get something a little different.
Postgraduate Coursework options range from MBA programs to specialist business courses, with the duration spanning from single subjects to graduate certificates, graduate diplomas, master and extension master courses. Our evolving list of industry-focused courses includes new choices in Business Analytics, Behavioural Economics and a unique twist on the MBA.
Undergraduate Programs, including the Bachelor of Business, are amongst the most popular choices for undergraduate study in NSW, with choices including the Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Economics, Bachelor of Accounting - a highly competitive and experience-based degree offered only as a Cooperative Scholarship Program, and the Bachelor of Business Administration: a unique program for experienced Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander professionals.
The UTS Futures Academy represents a paradigm shift in lifelong education, with bespoke learning programs designed with industry partners to deliver flexible, demand-driven learning for the changing workplace.
Research within UTS Business School is undertaken within our five discipline groups (Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management and Marketing), as well as our research centres and labs, including the Centre for Business and Social Innovation (CBSI), Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation (CHERE), Business Intelligence and Data Analysis (BIDA) Research Centre, and Centre for Policy and Market Design (CPMD).
The most recent Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) assessment and the associated Engagement and Impact Assessment (EIA) provide fresh evidence that UTS Business School is excelling in its mission to create high-quality knowledge that translates into practical impact for industry and society more broadly.
The school achieved four 5's (a rating of ‘well above world standard’) in ERA in the disciplines of Econometrics, Economic Theory, Marketing and Finance. As well as doubling the number of disciplines receiving this peak rating, we saw the average research performance of the Business School increase from 4.00 in 2015 to 4.25 in 2018, indicating that the work produced here is, on average, ‘above world standard’. These results place us in the top three business schools in the country, ahead of a number of the research-intensive business schools within the Group of 8 universities.
Our PhD students also make an important contribution to the intellectual vibrancy of the Business School. Quality candidates, quality supervision and a world-class training program mean, on completion of their degrees, our newly conferred doctoral graduates are snapped up by employers.
