MBA degree in Australia OR New Zealand


I would like to study in an international environment where English is the spoken language and where it's not too hard to get a visa. Which is better for these purposes, Australia or New Zealand?

Depends on a lot of factors.

Are you talking about student visas? If so, I'm guessing they'll both have relatively straightforward visa procedures.

If you're talking about using the MBA to transition to one of these countries, that's a different story. You'll want to look at each in terms of whether you think it's possible to find work in your chosen field.

Australia is a far bigger place and has a bigger economy. However, post-MBA visas can't be had unless you've studied there for I think it's 16 months. That rules out 1-year MBAs. In New Zealand, you can typically secure a one-year work visa after the completion of an MBA.

The other part is what schools you're looking at. Australia has more schools that are globally well known, like AGSM and Melbourne Business School. New Zealand has few schools but some solid accredited schools like Otago and the University of Auckland.
