The Master of Management at UTS is a distinctive degree in general management that exposes students to a diverse set of skills but also the concept of “stewardship”. A graduate from this program will emerge as a professional manager able to make, defend and be morally accountable for decisions affecting not only profit but also people and planet.
This recently refreshed program builds an enterprise-wide view of the organisation and an appreciation of the work of all those who contribute to success in today’s highly competitive and sometimes volatile business environment – from the back office and shop floor upwards.
It prepares people for more senior roles in general management in private, public, not-for-profit and international organisations, at a time when the public and forward-thinking organisations are looking for a new kind of manager.
What you’ll learn
The Master of Management at UTS provides students with the knowledge, skills and conceptual frameworks to enable them to identify, question and collaboratively resolve the complex and demanding issues that characterise the general managerial working environment. Students with a minimum of two years' full time, or equivalent, relevant managerial work experience will be offered the Mid-career Management stream while all other applicants will be offered the Early Career Management stream.
Students in the program will gain deep and heavily experiential exposure to a diverse set of general management areas, concluding with an Internship or Industry Research Project.
In the flagship subject Managing, Leading and Stewardship, students consider the role of managers as stewards of public trust in business, at a time when that’s been shaken.
Over the course of the program, you’ll develop their own philosophy of management, based on a set of global business principles that includes fairness, transparency, dignity and citizenship.
“The Managing, Leading and Stewardship subject challenged me to my very core and brought humanity, wisdom and business together in a way that I could never have anticipated.
I learned to listen to my own reductionist language that, unbeknownst to me, was turning humans into cells on a spreadsheet. This realisation is confronting and powerful because you understand that bringing humanity back into business is something we can all do. It’s what society is looking for.
Managing resources and leading people are critical skills in business but stewardship is integrative, and this is what makes business exciting and purposeful. By integrating stewardship into our business practices we bring out and protect human dignity. That’s impactful and that's our opportunity.”
