Develop leading edge business skills
Develop leading edge business skills through a unique qualification closely connected to practice.
New Zealand is an importer of many mostly manufactured goods and raw materials, as well as being an exporter of food/agricultural products, education services and tourism. So competence in developing global markets is a valuable skill, for which there are significant management opportunities within New Zealand and overseas.
In the Master of Business Administration (International Marketing) you will gain management competence in the fields of importing/exporting/market development. Teaching delivery is led by an experienced global company CEO.
As part of the programme, you will also work at a real-life management project for a firm either in New Zealand or overseas, where international marketing opportunities are created. Good project performance will add to the marketability of MBA graduates when they make the case for having New Zealand-based work experience in the large import/export industry.
Our MBA online option is New Zealand's only MBA designed in partnership with the award-winning Wiley Education Services.
You'll get 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.
