MBA in New Zealand


ux1090
I am thinking about doing my MBA in New Zealand. How are the career options after an MBA in the country? Are visas a problem?

I would apply to Otago, Victoria Management School, and AUT.

I believe that in New Zealand, after you complete your MBA, you can get up to a year on an open work visa. Then, if you find a job, you can apply for 2 or 3 years on a post-study work visa. In all, it's a pretty liberal policy.

The schools you are looking at are all fairly well-known in NZ. None, as far as I know, publishes placement reports though, and none are currently ranked in the FT, so there's no way to tell what the success statistics are.

You should contact them and ask.

Hey, is the University of Canterbury any good? I see that it has AACSB and AMBA accreditations but I can't find much information about it otherwise, such as placement information for non-NZ nationals.

Its accreditations insure that you'll get a quality education, if anything. This school suffers from the same issues as I addressed earlier - namely, it doesn't publish any kind of post-MBA career statistics. From Linkedin, it looks like its graduate base is on par with Otago and AUT, with its MBAs working in consulting, IT, and utilities, mainly.

Only Otago and AUT offer full-time MBA courses in the day. Otago is ranked by QS among the top 250 full-time MBA programs worldwide this year. Career options are generally good. If you plan to work in areas that are in short supply of experienced professionals, career opportunities are even better. Check out the New Zealand immigration websites.
