The Massey MBA programme commences with a three day residential orientation in Palmerston North. Your two years of study are then divided into Part I and Part II.
Part I – eight compulsory papers to be completed in the first year in order to proceed to Part B. Leadership development workshops are integrated throughout this year.
Part II – three compulsory papers, one of which includes an international study tour (total value of 60 credits), two electives (30 credits) from approved MBA papers, and a research project worth 30 credits.
In 2018 the MBA will be taught in Auckland (North Shore and South Auckland offerings) and in Wellington with the option of other regional centres dependent on at least 20 students being enrolled in that region. We have taught in New Plymouth and Christchurch in the past.
Auckland (North Shore) and Wellington – classes are held every third weekend in Albany, on the Auckland campus and in Wellington at the James Cook Hotel.
Auckland (South Auckland) – our South Auckland class is held over a long weekend (Friday to Sunday or Monday) every sixth weekend in the first year at a hotel near Auckland Airport.
Three times during the first year all classes come together for Orientation which includes part of the first paper in Palmerston North; for the Leadership Development Weekend in Wellington and back to Palmerston North to finish the first paper later in the first year. In the second year all regional classes are taught together.
