MBA

“UTS Business School has a wide variety of precisely defined majors and sub-majors which cater extremely well to the real world environment. The location of the campus and the mixture of industry leading experts as well as world leading academics are also strong reasons why its MBA stands out from the rest. The skills I have learnt at UTS have given me the edge in many situations where I was able to provide solutions and strategic thinking across many industries both in Australia and abroad.”

MBA, Master of Engineering Management

I was working as a Systems Engineer when I realised that my engineering degree was not enough, and I needed a strong business acumen and understanding to move forward in my career. The dual degree of Engineering Management and the MBA was a perfect fit for me as it built on my undergraduate engineering degree as well as helped me gain a strong understanding of business. UTS has a great reputation among industry. Graduates have strong practical experience combined with theoretical knowledge that is highly valued by employers.

“UTS was a stand-out for me, in the integrative approach to delivery, the practical teaching methods and the consistent cohort model – all of which suits my learning style, provides great short term support and establishes long-lasting relationships. From the very first semester I noticed a big influence on how I was performing and approaching problems at work. Gaining the knowledge and tools delivered through this course has helped me in pretty much every aspect of how I work and interact with people.”

Founder | Dlivee
MBAe

My experience in the UTS MBAe has fundamentally changed the way I think. I now look at problems and barriers as opportunities. I know the steps I need to take to develop solutions which align with the core problem. Jochen Schweitzer has developed a fantastic program with the MBAe which allowed us to immediately apply our learnings to real world problems. I’m now working on my own startup which stemmed from my final subject, through research into the problematic world of personal deliveries. I’ve left UTS with new business skills, the ability to think differently, a new business opportunity and a Master’s qualification.
