The UTS MBA is about developing your strategic thinking skills as you move upward – or take new turns – in your career. It’s also about flexibility: being able to tailor an MBA to suit your particular needs.
This is a two-year degree (four years part-time) that gives you time and space to build a really solid and broad foundation of general business skills, before capping that with your preferred specialisation – or specialisations.
Our MBA classes are well sized, with people from diverse professions, personal and geographic backgrounds. That means you’ll not only learn from us but also from each other, while building your networks.
You’ll do this in the striking, Frank Gehry-designed, headquarters of UTS Business School, a stroll through Darling Harbour for those working in the Sydney central business district or a short walk away from the Central Station transport hub.
What you'll learn
Our flexible, practice-based program features a core of eight subjects that introduce you to key managerial and business concepts. You then have access to a range of majors, sub-majors and more than 150 electives from which to complete your second set of eight subjects.
Want to advance an existing specialty like marketing but learn other skills as well? The UTS MBA allows you to do that. Coming from a strong background in a field like engineering and want to build your business knowledge? You can do that. If you want to specialise in two areas in your second year, that’s possible as well.
Strategy is at the heart of our MBA, and this comes together in your final, capstone strategy-making subject.
UTS MBA graduates emerge as well-rounded people who are able to combine strategic thinking with their functional skills to make great business decisions.
How the UTS MBA works
Once you have done your core subjects, you can choose from a huge range of majors (8 subjects or 48 credit points), sub-majors (4 subjects or 24 credit points) and up to 4 electives.
You can choose to study full-time (4 subjects at a time) or part-time. Either way, you study at night - usually from 6pm to 9pm one night per week per subject, meaning you can apply what you have learnt the next day, doing what you do now better.
You can also choose to do the shorter Graduate Certificate in Business Administration, consisting of 4 core subjects, or the Graduate Diploma in Business Administration, consisting of 7 core subjects and 1 elective.
Who is the MBA for?
The UTS MBA is designed for professionals seeking to make the transition into managerial roles. Your previous degree can be in any field, and your professional work experience can be in any industry or sector.
