Entrepreneurship Opportunities at UTS
More than 40 per cent of our students want to create their own jobs or start their own companies. Equipping students with the tools to become entrepreneurs will be critical to their success, whether it’s through co-curricular programs, credit-bearing offerings or industry opportunities. UTS has its own on-campus start-up incubator, a founding partnership with Sydney School of Entrepreneurship and a range of start-up internships and scholarship opportunities.

Extend your degree with a Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation
The Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation (BCII) is a unique combined degree that encompasses high-level critical and creative thinking, invention, complexity, innovation, future scenario building and entrepreneurship. Students are selected from 25 core degrees, from all faculties over UTS, to participate in high-level conceptual thinking and problem-solving challenges.
By combining this course with Business or Management, you’ll be ready to solve complex business challenges, work collaboratively across and between business and other disciplines, and apply theoretical knowledge beyond traditional professional boundaries. We offer the Bachelor of Business Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and the Bachelor of Management Bachelor of Creative Intelligence. A combined degree with Bachelor of Creative Intelligence would take a three year Business course to 4 years, and involves summer and winter school classes. Find a summary of the course structure in the Business School Course guide (pages 28-29).
Add the Diploma in Innovation to your UTS degree
The Diploma in Innovation provides the opportunity to take some subjects in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation, but is a shorter add on to a standalone degree, which does not change the course duration. You apply for this diploma after you have been accepted into a standalone degree at UTS.
All diploma subjects will be offered as winter and summer school intensives, so even though you're adding an extra qualification, you'll still graduate on time. You can also use the Diploma of Innovation as an entry pathway to a combined degree with the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation. For more information, take a look at the Faculty of Transdisciplinary Innovation Course Guide.
