I'm a big outdoor sports person and would like to move to New Zealand one day.
Does anyone have any idea on how much US MBA degree is recognized in New Zealand? Are there many job opportunities for MBA in New Zealand?

Hi Asimov - quick answer is that it varies. You'll find that the culture in general industry is not not very big on MBA / b-school. However all the usual suspects (banking and consulting) will value it like they value it anywhere else in the world. Trouble with the New Zealand economy is that it is so goddamn small and agriculture oriented that many skilled professionals move to Australia and to UK (I and many of my undergraduate friends have moved to both). However, the big brands are recognised for sure, just dont expect it to give you the extra leg up that it provides in the US. Duke for instance is an easily recognised brand (based on the strength of its undergrad program).

pm me if you have any specific questions about new zealand.
