MBA in NZ


Hesh3ml

Hi, I'm from a developing country and I am thinking about doing an MBA at Otago or another business school in New Zealand.

Can somebody please comment on the job possibilities and visa situation for international students. Are there other universities in New Zealand that I should apply to?

As far as I know, in terms of the visa situation, you get a year of time post-study to look for work. If you get a job during that time, you get another two years, and then after that you can apply for permanent residency. It's relatively liberal, compared to some other places.

In terms of job opportunities, it's going to really depend on what kind of work you want to do and what field, etc. New Zealand is not a huge country but does have some strong industries - manufacturing, agriculture, service, etc.

There are a few other accredited schools in the country you might look at. The University of Auckland is a good school, as is Auckland University of Technology.

Suggest you consider AGSM @ UNSW Business School in Sydney, Australia. Good quality, lots of scholarship to offer. Plus they also offer MBA extension program that allows you to apply for a two-year work visa to stay in Australia. After that, you can choose to apply permanent residency and choose to work either in Australia or New Zealand.

AGSM is a much better program, in terms of ROI, place to live, scholarship, job opportunities, permanent residency, etc. Contact me if you wish to know more info. Glad to help.

OP was clearly looking for MBA programs in New Zealand, not Australia.

If you study in Australia, you don't automatically get a work visa for New Zealand. It doesn't work like that.

If his goal is to work in New Zealand, there's literally no reason to study in Australia.

You can study for 12 months in New Zealand, and automatically get a visa to work in the country after graduation. In Australia, you have to study for 2 years to get a visa, and then it's only valid in Australia.

maury, the University of Auckland MBA does not accept internationals students on full-time program. Their MBA classes are conducted in the evenings and over the weekends. fyi.

Hesh3ml, wonder whether you have already selected your program, since your message dated back to June last year. AUT MBA is only 180 points and Otago MBA is 240 points. The higher the point, the more substantial the content.
