Hi Mukesh,

In New Zealand the standard of MBA's is pretty low. I have lived both in Australia and NZ and can assure you that an Australian MBA from AGSM or MBS is far better both in terms of quality of education and post graduation opportunities.

Having said that, Massey is the best of a pretty awful bunch from New Zealand, and if you *MUST* do an MBA in NZ then Massey would be the way to go. Also look out for the new MBA from the University of Auckland as well. They are building a new b-school building and are aiming to start a *world class* program pretty soon.

Good luck.

Hi bsd_lover,
This information was very helpful. Thank You very much. Massey is offerring this prgrm to our company associates, hence I was considering Massey. There came a little hope to hear from you that it is one of the best amongst awful ones in NZ. Do you know where I can find rankings or comparisons of Massey as compared to other universities in India and abroad. Some statistics that could help me further in making a decision.

Thanks,
Mukesh.

Mukesh,

Understand Massey is offering the program to your company employees , but that does not mean that you have to do it. I dont think so MBA from NZ is a viable option. As bsd ponited out look for only AGSM or MBS if you want to go dwon under. Again this is just my personal opinion and i think bsd is an Aussie expert and can give you a more clear picture.

Cheers

Hi more info for you , The following is the massey application criteria. Pretty relaxed, GMAT is optional.
http://gsb.massey.ac.nz/massey/depart/c ... ations.cfm

Fees :
http://gsb.massey.ac.nz/massey/depart/c ... ucture.cfm
43000 NZD all up + living expenses.

Massey is an outer western suburb of Auckland, Albany campus (where the MBA will be held) is even further than massey - in far north of Auckland, pretty far from the CBD. Not sure the networking aspect will be optimum there. Networking may not be relevant for you if you plan to return to your company post graduation anyway.

Another viable option in Auckland is the University of Auckland, widely regarded as the best university of New Zealand. The business school is right in the CBD. However the quality of degree has been questionable in the past. This might change in the future after the construction of a brand new b-school building (again in the CBD campus):

The entry criteria is even more relaxed than Massey.

Once again I would like to emphasize the monetary aspect of pursuing these degrees. The Australian MBA programs and AGSM and MBS are much more renowned and offer post graduation opportunities in Sydney, Melbourne and rest of Asia, and cost only marginally more than the NZ programs.
