Why study postgraduate business?
The reasons for postgraduate study are as diverse as our students but include:
Perhaps you already have a recent undergraduate degree in the field. You may be eligible to gain exemptions on introductory core subjects to help you accelerate your course and advance your skills, or perhaps head into more strategic management roles with one of our Management or MBA programs.
Never studied business before? That’s OK. From graduate certificates to master degrees, our programs allow you to gain the essential knowledge to transition into business leadership from any background. Read more about studying for career change here.
Don’t get left behind by technology or advances in practice. Keep yourself up-to-date and your skillset relevant with options ranging from individual subjects (non-award study) to full master degrees
Running your own business
Ever dreamt of launching your own enterprise? Or perhaps you just want to think more entrepreneurially within your current organisation. Either way, the MBA in Entrepreneurship is a unique solution to give you the knowledge, skills and confidence you need.
Taking the plunge
Whether it's been a while since you have studied, or this is the first time you have explored business options at uni, you may have a number of questions or concerns. Check out answers to common questions that help take the mystery out of postgraduate business study with UTS Business School.

Why now is the right time
Make this the year you stop just thinking about postgraduate study and start doing. Want to know why? Read on…
Now is the time to invest
Historically low interest rates, combined with a growing and transitioning economy, mean right now the best investment you can make is yourself. Your knowledge, your skills and your networks. Position yourself at the vanguard of Australia’s new economy rather than be left behind.
Get a return on investment sooner
According to the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching, the median salary for master degree holders in 2018 was $83,300, 37% higher than those with a bachelor degree. The sooner you do it, the more time you have for it to be paying dividends.
Control your career
The average Australian changes jobs every 3.3 years and will have 5 careers in their lifetime. The ticket to you being in control of this is having the skills, networks and confidence that are the unique hallmarks of postgraduate education.
More competition than ever before
Think a bachelor degree is enough? Over the past decade, over 1.29 million Australians completed an undergraduate degree, including 146,470 in 2017 alone, more than any previous year. Over the same time, postgraduate completions grew by 36%. Furthermore, a survey of graduate outcomes found that 90% of Australians who completed a postgraduate Business or Management degree found full time employment within four months of completion, over 18% higher than the average for undergraduate degree holders. To compete in today’s professional landscape, postgraduate qualifications are almost a prerequisite.
Government fee support
Do you know you can defer paying your postgraduate fees in the same way as your undergraduate tuition fees? FEE HELP is the government loan initiative that covers Australian postgraduate student fees, where you pay it back according to your income.
UTS Alumni save 10%
If you have a previous degree from UTS, you can now save 10% on fees for postgraduate UTS courses.
