About the MBA

The Massey MBA focuses on giving you the skills to successfully lead others. You will develop your strategic thinking skills, learn how to analyse and solve problems, operate well within a multi-cultural environment and utilise cutting-edge technology.

Your learning will blend the most recent research with input from business practitioners who will be presenting, mentoring and working with you through real-world cases. The full-time MBA offers a work experience opportunity in a New Zealand firm or an overseas firm with a New Zealand presence.

You only require three years of work experience of any kind to enroll in the MBA, but if you're a working professional with at least seven years of work experience and three years of management experience, you may be more suited to studying the part-time Executive MBA.


A flexible and personalised journey to management and leadership

Massey’s Master of Business Administration (MBA) is unique in New Zealand – the only MBA you can study either full-time or fully online, including cutting-edge specializations. You’ll benefit from connection to practice through guest lecturers and work experience opportunities and gain practical knowledge you can put to use immediately at work.


Leading the way online
