Diversify your skills and expertise with a Business Taught Masters (BTM) qualification from UC. Boost your degree from any background into a successful career in business - no prior business qualifications required.


Why Business Taught Masters?

A degree from the Business Taught Masters suite is more than just a degree. A BTM degree enhances your degree with the addition of business skills without the need to take undergraduate level courses.

UC Business School takes pride in its personalised support tailored for both domestic and international students.

As a student of the programme, you will have access to support for your study, life, and career, including a dedicated orientation when you arrive, pastoral care services, career development seminars, and additional certification opportunities.
