The Bachelor of Business Administration is taught in a supportive, cohort-based study environment. The course is structured as a residential based program with students attending classes at UTS three times per semester for a week at a time.
It is expected that students will be highly independent and self-motivated learners able to maintain their study commitments while away from UTS.
Students in the Bachelor of Business Administration complete 6 modules, each of 4 subjects. The course incorporates project subjects in each of the 6 modules which are designed to challenge, consolidate and thoroughly deepen students’ understanding of the core business functions, how they all interrelate, and are applied in workplace or business settings.
The course is structured into a series of modules designed to focus specifically on the core functions of management.
The first module, Integrating Business Skills, introduces the various core business disciplines including accounting, finance, economics and marketing, in an interdisciplinary setting. The objectives of this module are to introduce students to the business landscape, the interrelationships of the various business functions and the contributions to the value of the firm and society more broadly. It also is the module that introduces the development of generic skills, including written, oral communication and team work skills.
Modules 2 through to 5 develop business management skills that align directly with the core functions of an organisation:
- the management of the organisation and organisational structure
- the management of people and the development of human capital
- the management and oversight of the organisation’s financial resources including sources of funding
- the management of its operations and supply chain including the consideration of financial and other operational risks an organisation may typically be faced with
The final module, Managing Innovation, brings together the knowledge developed throughout the degree in the context of new venture creation and entrepreneurial activity
Exit points have been designed for students who may be unable to complete the full bachelor’s degree. Upon successful completion of the first 3 modules, students may exit the program with a Diploma in Business Administration, or with successful completion of the first 4 modules, students may exit with an Advanced Diploma in Business Administration.
