The degree seeks to provide students with the knowledge, competencies and values necessary to develop critical, analytical and evaluative skills essential for a fulfilling and effective career in business.
I’m Bianca and I’m the HR Manager of the Sam Prince Group, including Zambrero, Mejico, One Disease and Life Letters.
Zambrero is a quick service franchise restaurant group, operating both nationally and internationally.
I studied a Bachelor of Business and I graduated in 2014.
As HR Manager I work across the group playing a strategic role in the HR function, so everything from recruitment and selection, right through to retention, learning and development, and obviously a range of different performance management strategies.
One of the real drawing points for me in coming to work for Zambrero and the Sam Prince Group was the humanitarianism of the group, and in particular the philanthropy of the owner and founder Dr Sam Prince.
Most notably Zambrero has a plate for plate initiative, in which every bowl or plate sold in each of our Zambrero franchises, an equivalent plate is donated to someone in the developing world. So we really try and recruit people that have those same values.
I really feel that my communication skills and the way I’ve refined them throughout my time and my degree at UTS enables me to make presentations really effective, and to come through to the franchise partners in a way that I can relate to them, and they can take back some really key knowledge.
On a day to day basis I make decisions and really hold accountability for those decisions, so one example of this is performance management, when we have to get there and make really tough calls in HR. I feel that my best decisions come from those that are well contemplated, and those that I can really back and therefore be accountable for.
Professionally I see myself really developing in my role as HR Manager currently, and beyond that moving up to potentially a HR Director role here within the Sam Prince Group.
Career options include finance, international business and management.
Course structure explained

On successful completion, students are granted one-year credit or advanced standing to the second year of the UTS Bachelor of Business.
The second part of the UTS Bachelor of Business (48 credit points) comprises the Finance Major, the Management major or the International Business major in the UTS Bachelor of Business. Academics from UTS teach eight subjects over two teaching blocks in one year. The subjects are delivered in Shanghai University using a lecture/tutorial format.
The third part of the UTS Bachelor of Business comprises 48 credit-points of non-specified elective subjects taught by Shanghai University. These electives are drawn from a range of degree-level subjects offered in English by SHU in standard full-time mode as session-long subjects. The subjects are accredited as part of the UTS Bachelor of Business in accordance with UTS' quality assurance policies and processes.
The eight subjects taught by UTS are delivered in two teaching blocks with all the subjects completed in one year. The subjects are delivered in a lecture/tutorial format. During each 12-week block, UTS academics coordinate these subjects and provide face-to-face lectures in Shanghai.
