Part-time MBA

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. As an approximate guide, you can expect to spend up to 15 hours per week on each core paper. These hours are made up of a combination of lectures, time with your team, preparation of assignments and reading. Group assignments will often require spending time with your team on weekends and in the evenings.

Flexible pace of completion

One important advantage of the part-time Otago MBA is that it offers the flexibility to choose the pace of study that suits you best.
