Seriously, why not visit their websites, or even ask them? These schools will publish placement information.

Honestly, the internet is your friend. I have to focus my time here, and I don't want to answer questions you can answer yourself with a little research. If you are not motivated to do the work, then you are not serious about an MBA.

This is in reply to Daksh. Maybe I can help out here with some info on the Otago MBA. The full time Otago MBA is a two phase intensive program. Phase One comprises 9 months of on-campus study. This is followed by a highly flexible Phase Two of electives, international exchange or distance learning through online media. Phase Two can range between 6 to 12 months depending on how hard and fast you can or want to work. Otago runs the only truly full time MBA program in New Zealand. Yes, GMAT is required.

The part-time MBA admission is slightly different. Students may be awarded a diploma if they wish to stop after 8 papers. If they wish to go on to an MBA degree, then they must achieve an average grade of B+ or better on designated papers, or sit for the GMAT. Time it takes to complete a part-time MBA is expected to be longer.

Hope this information helps.

Well honestly speaking first & foremost you should take your GMAT as it will widen your options of B schools. Secondly if you want to explore other countries as well you should increase your work experience to 3+ years. Also, consider 1 yr program vs 2 yrs program & the cost considerations. For statistics on job opportunities visit the b school website or contact the B school officials.

It looks like the average work experience for the Otago MBA is around 8 years:

http://find-mba.com/schools/australia-nz/new-zealand/otago

Makes me think that this applicant may not have enough work experience to be competitive there. And both the the AUT and Canterbury MBA programs require five years of work experience just to apply.

Maybe a master's in management program would be a better option...

That's not accurate. MINIMUM entry requirement for the Otago MBA is 3 years. 8 is the AVERAGE experience in the class. I had been checking info on them. Take a look at: http://www.otagomba.ac.nz/mba-apply-now

@ezra, wonder whether you and Ralph are the same person. You talk alike - exactly the same comments about the 8 years average work experience when the minimum is 3.

For anyone checking info on NZ, please note that only Otago and AUT offers full-time MBA to international students. AUT MBA is 180 points and Otago MBA is 240 points. The higher the points, the higher the content. So, don't waste time searching the wrong universities.
