If you think you’ve got the next big business idea, the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) may help you ignite it. The new one-year UTS MBA in Entrepreneurship (MBA) degree is designed specifically for entrepreneurs, innovators and business enthusiasts.
Course director Dr Jochen Schweitzer says the UTS MBA creates conditions that enable entrepreneurship to emerge while simultaneously teaching key skills in business modelling, technology and go-to-market strategy – preparing students to become future disruptors of industry.
The MBA comprises three self-contained Graduate Certificates in commercialisation, entrepreneurship and venture funding. “It equips students to start their own business, follow ideas or drive change in their workplace,” says Jochen.
Entrepreneurship is taught the same way other skills are taught, by mixing fundamental business knowledge, like finance, with strategic thinking and contemporary innovation methods.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind program that teaches how to develop a dream and leverage drive,” says Jochen.
The UTS MBA program exploits the university’s strong connection with the startup community and encourages frequent interaction with industry leaders through networking events, masterclasses and mentorship programs.
It’s one of the few MBA programs worldwide where budding entrepreneurs can practise the skills they’ll need to make an impact. “It has a particular focus on enterprise, innovation and creativity – making it a highly specialised learning environment for Australia’s next generation of cutting-edge thinkers,” says Jochen.
“It’s a one-of-a-kind program that teaches how to develop a dream and leverage drive.”
