The University of Otago’s Online MBA programme has been ranked third best on a global stage by London-based CEO Magazine.

In this year’s Global MBA Rankings, Otago’s Online MBA was placed third in the world, up from fourth last year. The full-time on-campus programme was also ranked as a tier one programme, one of only two New Zealand programmes in the category.

CEO Magazine ranked more than 270 programmes based on 11 factors, including quality of faculty, international diversity, staff to student ratio, international exposure, work experience, and gender parity. Based on their overall scores, programmes were then ranked as either tier one or tier two.

Director of Executive Programmes, Ian Lafferty, says the ranking is a “great boost in confidence and morale” for the team, and a recognition Otago Business School is on the right track with what it is offering students.

Through the rankings, the magazine aims to cut through the noise and provide potential students with a performance benchmark for those schools under review.

The Otago Online MBA, established in 2014, is the only online MBA in New Zealand.
