Master of Business Administration

General

Program Description

There are many reasons to do the UTS MBA, with the course providing the flexibility to adapt to each student's unique educational needs, background and career aspirations. Students can structure the program to include a choice of majors, or two sub-majors, or one sub-major plus up to four electives from throughout the business school.

The UTS MBA aims to enable early career professionals to either prepare for more senior roles within their current field, or to switch to new fields of business management. This includes general management, function and specialist skills development. General management skills develop expertise in strategic thinking, critical analysis, developing and implementing business plans, decision-making under uncertainty, understanding organisational dynamics, motivating others, effective communication, leadership, and promoting change in dynamic environments. Functional skills develop competency in a number of key disciplines including accounting, finance, marketing and human resources management. Specialist skills are introduced in areas such as: international marketing; human resource management; management in the public, private and international spheres; sport; engineering management; and information technology.

The MBA is a widely recognised and transportable postgraduate degree. Students in the MBA know that to realise their full career potential, additional managerial skills and credentials are essential. Personal investment in an intellectually demanding and practically applied MBA program may provide students with the knowledge and skills required for career progression or career change.
