Next intake: Flexible 


Two MBA students in a meeting

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

The Otago MBA offers executives and professionals, who live in and around Dunedin City, a competitive career advantage.


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 course alongside a traditional lecture format.


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 One 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
