I have no experience in that, but for what I can image is like everywhere in a small country, but I expect several chances you will have to find the right role. The comparison is the same everywhere: it is like to look for a new role in the whole of Europe or just in only one country. The only problem in NZ is that possibilities of movement are limited, but when you find it, maybe not immediately, you have a good life style, higher quality level of Europe I guess. On the other hands, career possibilities are less than Europe. You need to find your right balance and what you want from your life.

Interesting, not unentirely related blog post from Otago on this very subject:

http://otagomba-nz.blogspot.de/2013/12/placement-youre-kidding-right.html

There's no promises of placement, but the author is saying that the more hands-on experience you have, the better. He suggests doing a consulting project with a company to help get your foot in the door.

The realities are that, compared to some other destinations, New Zealand is going to have a smaller labor market. How that plays out for international students is not clear. I would try to find graduates of MBA programs there who successfully made the transition and ask them about their experiences. You can also ask the schools directly; maybe they have some kind of career data that they can send you.

I partially agree. NZ like Australia obviously as I told are wonderful place where you can live but the job market is proportioned to the country size. Regarding my study choice is that I will intake in UK, more recognized school all over the world and then move there to live.
I still think it is possible to find a role for an MBA there, but it will require more time because the sits available are logically less then the whole of Europe or USA. This is quite logical, more size and companies more offer...I am not inventing the hot water
I have also read about Otago BS, but in the Australasia rank the first one is Auckland, although Otago is really performing school. If I would have chosen a NZ school for sure I opted for Auckland, if you include also Australia maybe Melbourne. Asking to university is a good option, but think that they are selling something to you and they want to hire talent, so it is like to ask to a restaurant if their food is good.
