Hi Kartik, Otago MBA - University of Otago is a one of the highly ranked MBA programs in Australasia.
You can find all the info about the program on their website www.otagomba.co.nz/.
Regarding the MBA program, it has a very good mix of international students with healthy student teacher ratio.

Cheers
Manish

Hi,

I have got an MBA offer from AIS. As far as I know it is not a university setup. It is a college which is offering a wide range of courses including MBA. Even I am in search of information about this institution. The consultancy people are recommending it to be a good instituon but we can't go with that alone. When I spoke to one of my friends in NZ he said that he is not aware of this name first of all. You can apply for AUT and Massey also but Massey offers only 25-26 months course. AUT seems to be a good university.

Hi karthik,

If u want a career based on your MBA this country will not help. All the consultants are concerned about their commission. Ur chance of getting a job after your MBA is bleak. MAny Indian students have returned back without proper jobs. There is false propagation going on in India. If u want to build a career based on ur MBA My advice would be not to come to Newzealand as u dont have one here. U option could be singapore or work for CAT and other Business schools in India. In India oppurtunities are more. Please dont waste 15 lacs in MBA in NZL u will be a scape goat. You may ask who am I to tell about this I am a student doing MBA in AUT.

Hi Manick

The AUT MBA is 180 academic points, this compares to Otago MBA's (also in New Zealand) 300 points which can be completed in the same time-frame.

I can also confirm that Otago does not give any commission to any agents. Students come to do their MBA at Otago because it is an internationally recognised MBA.

Uh, lots of MBA students have finished programs in recent years without landing jobs immediately - even in their home countries, and even at top schools.

What's the economy / job market like in NZ anyway?

Hi guys its a question of spending hard earned money in search for a future. We are talking about financially affluent persons who can afford a life style. I answered the question only from this perspective. Back home atleast u dont spend so much and for ur infos top business schools in India have always had 90% placements. And taking the economy definitely Newzealand is a small economy where it cannot support the MBA students that are completing their coarses. Please do your homework properly before replying. Please donot just reply through your head just for the sake.

Hi nathan,

I was talking about the job scenario and not about the standard. Definitely the degrees offered by the universities are well recognised and of no doubt its all of global standards. The agents in India show a green picture hiding the facts where the students make a huge bet by going into loans. I just wanted to tell about the job scenario not about the standard.

Well, respectfully, I think we might be talking past each other. But good luck in India. There are undoubtedly good programs there, and they should get even more international with time.

Hi Nakshatra ,
I have made a study about the colleges in New zealand and the most important thing --Job after MBA. All my research ended me in saying that Newzealand is not a good country for this.My sincere suggestion would be not to waste your time and money in newzealand . Simple to say taking your husband along with you will not be a good move at all. You can try for UK, ALL THE BEST

Regards
K S Karthik

Okay let us say you are correct in regards of NZ economic capacity. But you are speaking something about CAT. Let us face the fact. Will you be able to crack CAT just as you did IELTS. Do you think it's so easy. Just imagine the population of India and number of competitors in CAT exam dude. If CAT was so easy everybody would have chosen CAT as their option but we must know our capacities to crack the exam. Even in India you would be spending approximately same amount of money as you are spending in NZ plus you are getting global exposure. I accept opportunities are more in India but a foreign degree would fetch you lot of points as per your career is concerned. In India B-Schools fees aren't less suppose if you take ISB - 2.2 million, in IIM's you will spending approximately 10 lakhs including. So what's the point in studying.. www.rediff.com/getahead/2008/feb/28msg.htm

Hi Kartik, Actually I wanted to thank you for suggesting us not to apply to New Zealand for an MBA program. I was just about to apply for AIS which my agent recommended me. Now I will try for UK.

I am a kiwi so I thought I would offer everyone on here a local perspective. Regarding AIS, I have never heard of this institution and had to google it to find out what it was. It started as a english language school for international students and grew from that. The fact that it is not on my radar mean I would definitely not recommend you obtain an mba from this institution, it is not recognised locally. Also in recent years their have been some high profile news coverage about some appalling standards and rubber stamping of qualifications offered at certain foreign student only learning institutions, so lots of bad press for these types of institutions.

Secondly regarding AUT, I looked at doing an MBA last year and went along to a couple of classes with a friend who was studying. I can say I was not impressed. About half the students were foreign students which I have no problem with but I did have a problem with some of there english language skills. For some their language and vocabulary was just not up to scratch for undertaking a post graduate qualification. It held them back in terms of understanding the complexity of ideas and it held back the class in term of their ability to communicate articulately within the group. Secondly I wasn't that impressed with the local students either, I found them to overall of mediocre quality, I want to be in a program full of very sharp people not mediocre, because when they graduate you are put in the same bucket with them. If the graduates aren't of high quality then you qualification is dumbed down and not highly regarded in the workplace. I also went along to one Auckand Univesity MBA class and I found the standard of student to be a lot higher, and a higher standard of discussion within the class. Also access to the MBA from the post Grad Diploma requires a B+average or better so not just anyone can get into it, for AUT there was no restriction you could keep going as long as you passed and they said they passed over 95% of people, sound a bit like rubber stamping to me.

In the end I decided not to do an MBA as I couldn't see enough value for the investment. Instead I found a three month unpaid work trial/ experience in the new industry I wanting to move into, and completed several industry short course. I year later I now have a management position in that industry so I am happy with my decision. My friend who completed her MBA at AUT, earlier this year, has been trying to find a more senior position but has had no luck as of yet. She said generally the feedback regarding her brand new MBA has been, "that is all well and good, but where is your solid real life experience, in operations, senior management etc" Good luck with your decision.

Hi Guys,

Firstly, thanks to each one who has contributed towards the post on MBA from NZ.

Due to certain pressures, I am wanting to enroll myself into MBA program in 2012 and thus one the consultant offered suggestion of Waikato or AUT for Feb'12 MBA admissions.

I have 6 years of experience in LED Industry in INDIA but no GMAT score on board. Though initially, reading about waikato accredition from AMBA made me feel confident but after reading many blogs subsequently, I am feeling discouraged on MBA from NZ.

It shall be very kind of you guys to address /highlight or throw more light to make a considerate decision on Waikato or AUT.
