place to be

treehouse in the heart of the city.
The only Frank Gehry-designed
building in Australia, it is more than
just a physical space; its unconventional
design reflects our unique approach to
business education. At UTS, you’ll
get something a little different.

Master of Business

A degree of flexibility
The UTS MBA is about developing your strategic thinking skills
as you move upward – or take new turns – in your career. It’s
also about flexibility: being able to tailor an MBA to suit your
particular needs.
This is a two-year degree (four years part-time) that gives you
time and space to build a really solid and broad foundation
of general business skills, before capping that with your
preferred specialisation – or specialisations.
Our MBA classes are well sized, with people from diverse
professions, personal and geographic backgrounds. That
means you’ll not only learn from us but also from each other,
while building your networks.

 What you’ll learn
 The MBAe allows people to work on their startups while
 building the skills they’ll need to move forward. Topics such as

 Along the way, you’ll have access to many co-curricular
 activities, including the UTS Startups program, hackathons,
 masterclasses, expert panels and 1:1 mentorship with our

Executive MBA
 Leading for the long term
 The refreshed Executive MBA (EMBA) builds on a foundation
 of more than 15 years to offer a program that not only
 shapes aptitude but also character. The EMBA produces
 knowledgeable graduates who can use research insights to
 transform organisations. It also builds confident, courageous
 and ethical executives who can respond to global challenges
 and lead sustainable economic development.
 The new program retains the personalised, small-cohort
 approach that’s been our hallmark, while delving even
 deeper into the ‘whole’ leader – the executive who can lead
 with integrity, making decisions not only in the best interests
 of the company, its people and customers, but also working
 for the economy and society, with both the short and long
 term in mind.

Postgraduate Course Guide


 On our best behaviour
 This new program introduces you to behavioural economics,
 a field that brings together psychology and economics to
 better describe and predict what people will do. Behavioural
 economics takes the methodology of economic theory
 beyond the standard economic assumptions of rationality
 and self-interest to consider the trade-offs people make
 when forming what may well be imperfect decisions in
 complex environments.
 Its insights can be used in a wide range of settings, including
 financial decision making, health decisions, education
 decisions, and in addressing environmental issues like climate
 change. It’s useful across many domains, including fields
 such as consulting, human resource management, marketing
 and product design. People with training in this field are
 increasingly in demand across business and policymaking.

 Business Analytics

 Succeed in a data-driven future
 Businesses able to make better decisions using data will be

 Business analytics covers three core tasks that add value for business, government and other organisations.
 –    Diagnostic analytics reports on what’s happened and identifies the causes.
 –    Predictive analytics uses data to predict what’s likely to happen next.
 –    Prescriptive analytics identifies a course of action.

                                                        “Ethics is all about how you behave when no one is looking.
                                                         It’s sometimes taught as a compliance-based subject but
                                                         that’s not our approach.
                                                         Can you change a ‘bad’ person into an ethical person?
                                                         You don’t become ethical at birth. You learn as you go along.
                                                         So I think it’s possible to nudge people, to open them up by
                                                         posing dilemmas where sometimes there’s no ‘right’ answer.
                                                         That’s where you need the case study approach. You need
                                                         debate, you need to pose questions. What would you do in
                                                         this situation? How would you work through this? You need
                                                         unstructured decision-making in some ways, because
                                                         otherwise you’re not going to be able to replicate this in the
                                                         real world.”

Postgraduate Course Guide


 A new kind of manager
 The Master of Management at UTS is a distinctive degree in
 general management that exposes you to a diverse set of
 skills but also the concept of “stewardship.” You’ll emerge as
 a professional manager able to make, defend and be morally
 accountable for decisions affecting not only profit but also
 people and planet.
 This recently refreshed program builds an enterprise-wide
 view of the organisation and an appreciation of the work of all
 those who contribute to success in today’s highly competitive
 and sometimes volatile business environment – from the back
 office and shop floor upwards.
 It prepares you for more senior roles in general management in
 private, public, not-for-profit and international organisations,
 at a time when the public and forward-thinking organisations
 are looking for a new kind of manager.                              CHRISTINE YATES

 If you have a minimum of two years’ full time, or equivalent,
 relevant managerial work experience you’ll be offered the

 The innovative structure of the Master of Management
 provides flexibility to tailor a program that meets your own
 personal and professional needs. It’s a program for those
 seeking to develop judgement, not just knowledge, and who
 see their enterprises as part of a global community.
