Master of Business Administration - Global Business - level 9

The Massey University Master of Business Administration (MBA) gives you the flexibility to design your  studies to perfectly fit your interests.

You can gain an MBA by studying either full-time for one year in Auckland, or you study part-time by distance (online) over a longer period of up to 5 years (most students will complete in about 2 years), giving you the flexibility to conveniently plan your study around your personal and professional needs. 

The MBA online is designed for students working full-time allowing you to immediately apply your learnings at work.

You will learn from superb teachers, many with decades of corporate work experience, subject matter experts and executives who join as guest speakers. You enjoy discussions of current-day management challenges and real-life business issues, from throughout New Zealand and worldwide. Your learning will also be informed by the most recent research and trends. You will be assessed through practical assignments that may be written, oral and/or via video. There are no examinations in the MBA programme..

We offer the choice of three specialisations, and you select one or none: Business Sustainability, Digital Transformation or Global  Business. These give your MBA that extra competitive touch when you position yourself for new and exciting  job prospects. The specialisations available to you depends on whether you study online or on-campus.  You can also choose not to have a specialisation.

You'll have access to world-class online technology 24/7 and engaging learning methods. This includes online classes and team-meetings, along with forums and group-work. This allows you to network with and  learn directly from your peers and faculty. Find out more on the Master of Business Administration page.
