Online MBA Faculty

Our faculty members come from different corners of the world, just as our students do, enriching the international diversity of the programme. Lecturers on the Otago MBA are drawn from three areas – the University, other reputable global business schools, and consultants or business practitioners. They are carefully selected for both academic excellence and strong practical experience in running successful businesses.

At the Otago MBA, we take the quality of our programme very seriously. We invite feedback from students at the completion of each course ensuring that teaching content is well delivered and useful. All courses go through rigorous approval and review process to ensure that they are of the highest standards and meet expectations for a world class MBA programme.
