Massey’s MBA is designed for executives and managers. There is one intake per year and successful applicants study together as a cohort over the next 30 months.
Admission to the MBA Programme is via Selected Entry and includes:
Candidates will be university graduates or hold professional qualifications, university diplomas or other significant tertiary qualifications.
All candidates must have practical working experience of usually not less than seven years with at least two years at management level. This requirement ensures that all candidates are able to contribute significantly to group discussions and debates from a position of experience and knowledge. Consequently, candidates who lack such experience are unlikely to be considered for entry.
For general entry requirements see Massey University entry requirements.
The Massey MBA is designed for full-time working executives and managers who need to study part-time. It is available as a 30 month programme conducted every 3rd weekend in Auckland and Wellington and every 6th weekend at Auckland Airport, or other regional cities depending on demand.
Part One courses are offered over 17 weekends at 3-4-week intervals. The Auckland Airport offering is run as 3 or 4-day block courses over 11 weekends. Part Two courses will be offered nationally in block mode (Friday-Monday) at approximately 5-6 week intervals. Candidates are required to spend 15-30 hours per week in individual and group study between the weekend classes.
A unique aspect of the Massey MBA is the 2-week international study tour. This trip takes place in the second year of your study. You will gain invaluable experience of international business operations, economic and social frameworks. Each year a different country is visited.
