Why choose the UC MBA?

Flexibility and accessibility.

Our hybrid learning model takes a future-focused and flexible approach to learning, with classes that can be accessed either in-person or online. The programme is designed with your needs in mind, and fits seamlessly around your busy schedule and commitments.

The most industry engaged MBA in New Zealand.

Strong partnerships with businesses, co-teaching with industry leaders, real-world case studies, and company projects offers you practical, real-world insight, making learnings immediately applicable to your work environments.

We guide you to develop your skillset and mindset so that you are ready to drive change and navigate contemporary business landscapes. From developing your own leadership journey, to one-on-one coaching by some of the top business coaches in the country, the UC MBA focuses on developing leaders with impact. 

The Hybrid MBA programme allows you to either join classes in person or online, so you can work around other commitments, while maximising networking opportunities through in-person block weekends. You can complete in 18 months full-time or up to 5 years part-time. 

Through our network of other accredited MBA programmes globally, UC MBA students can now take part in the International Study Tour, and also engage with other Business Schools world-wide in exchanges and short courses.

We create networks that will allow you to connect with business leaders, entrepreneurs, and alumni, promoting impactful collaborations.

The UC MBA programme is ideal for experienced professionals who want to accelerate their careers, change industry, or upskill in their current roles with the aim to achieve impact in an environment of change and disruption.

While MBA students are typically middle to senior-level professionals from organisations of any size or sector, business start-ups and entrepreneurs looking to scale their ventures also benefit from the programme as we have close ties with the UC Centre for Entrepreneurship (UCE).

We also have a large cohort of candidates from professional careers (e.g. pilots, engineers, medical professionals) who enter our MBA through the Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration pathway if they do not have undergraduate degree.
