Study our part-time MBA and balance your work, study and life

The part-time Otago MBA is a two- to three-year programme for high-achievers who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to commit to the full-time programme.

It provides a flexible study option for executives and professionals, who live in and around Dunedin City and want to take their career to the next level. Gain a globally respected degree and enjoy all the benefits of studying on-campus.


Undertaking the part-time Otago MBA means you will be studying exactly the same curriculum and classes as full-time students. The curriculum is delivered via a mix of lectures, interactive workshops and regular presentations from visiting business leaders and academics. Case-study analysis is interspersed throughout the coursework in Phase 1.


The Otago MBA is an academically demanding and rigorous 240 points programme which delivers a solid foundation across all areas of business. Each paper runs for six weeks and the expected workload per Phase 1 paper is:

  • Readings (including cases) = 12 hours per week x 7 weeks = 84 hours
  • Lectures = 36 hours
  • Group Assignment = 20 hours
  • Individual Assignment = 40 hours
  • Grand Total = 180 hours per phase one paper
