Most New Zealand universities accept the three-year graduation system for entry into the MBA programme. So, if you have a three-year bachelor degree like Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) or Bachelor of Science (BSc), this is acceptable as it is considered equivalent to a New Zealand Bachelor (Ordinary) Degree.
However, some universities may require an Honors degree. This is usually equivalent to B.Com. (H), B.Sc. (H) or a four year degree course like B.E.
For most good Universities, a good first degree from a leading university in India or its equivalent is essential.
Most New Zealand business schools require a minimum of three to four years of work experience for admission to the MBA program. This is essential.
There are almost no good options for students, looking for an MBA program in New Zealand that does not require work experience.MBA degrees are normally from 14 to 16 months full-time. They are very intensive and highly focussed programmes with differing entry dates between the four Universities who offer these programmes.
The Universities look at a range of criteria when assessing MBA applicants including academic qualifications, work history, personal interests and English levels. MBA applicants normally must have an english level of IELTS (Academic) 6.5.
