Practical experience is one of the core elements of teaching and learning throughout the University. At UTS Business School, we ensure each course is structured to allow relevant, practice-based assessment is conducted alongside theoretical learning and examination.
An elective in the Bachelors of Business and Economics, and compulsory in the Bachelors of Management and Accounting, internships are your best opportunity to put what you have learnt so far into practice, working on projects that add real value to client organisations and getting a real feel for what work in that industry is like. For information on our work placement programs, see our Internships page.
Each major or specialisation in the undergraduate programs involves completing a capstone subject, usually consisting primarily of an industry project. These subjects allow you to create work that is assessed at an industry level, and to contribute significant project outcomes to your professional portfolio.
Integrated Business Consultancy
A compulsory first year subject in the Bachelor of Business, IBP has been developed in response to calls from industry wanting graduates with a thorough understanding of how different business elements work together. Through IBP, you will get a taste of the different disciplines in the business degree as well as an understanding of ethical and sustainability issues as they relate to the role of business in society.
You will experience case studies throughout your degree, working on solving complex business problems with our partners. You may even find yourself presenting your solutions to industry panels including future employers.
Live case studies
In a number of subjects, you may be given real-world case studies that have been brought us by our industry partners and collaborators. This insight into the workings of the current issues facing the industry is invaluable, as you experience the application of skills and knowledge in a workplace scenario, but with the input and advice of peers and academic staff.
Working on your own case studies
If you are currently working within your field of study, many subjects allow you to bring your own professional projects in as case studies
