My name is Hussain Rammal. I'm the director of the Master of Business Administration programme at UTS Business School.
The UTS MBA fills the needs of the industry. Business is seeking out for talent that have a broad understanding of basic business functions but also have the ability to strategize and make decisions that can give the organisations competitive advantage. The UTS MBA is flexible, provides you with a broad general knowledge that you need about business activities. This provides the base knowledge for students to learn about how business is done in the current form but also in the future. But it provides you the opportunity to specialise in areas and that can be a career transition point or it could be something that can help you with career progression. It is a two-year full-time programme, but it can be done in four years for those professionals who are working full-time.
The other good thing about the programme is the cohort experience you get in the classroom is very unique. Not only do you get students from different educational backgrounds, different professional backgrounds, but also different countries and that allows learning outside OF just the classroom.
The classroom, we provide different opportunities for learning. So we have evening classes because the MBA is of course targeted for professionals, but we also provide options on weekends in our block classes. And that again, takes into consideration the fact that a lot of our MBA students are working full-time. So what you learn, you apply straightaway.
The UTS business school is located right in the middle of the Sydney CBD, and that means we are engaging with business on a daily basis. We are engaged with large multinationals. We're engaged with domestic firms, even small family-owned businesses. That for students means that all the activities that they undertake, the assessment tasks they do, they're all practical and related to what you would need to do in business in the future.
We understand that choosing an MBA is a important decision you make and we encourage you to explore our programme and ask us any questions you may have related to the UTS MBA.
