The career prospects at the end of the Otago MBA academic adventure for both domestic and international students are excellent. Our alumni are an illustrious bunch which the Otago MBA is proud of. Many of them progress on to be highly successful in their fields.
Amongst our most famous alumni is, of course, Graeme Harte, multi-billionaire and richest man in New Zealand. We celebrate his success with pride – inevitably so since he developed his strategy for his business while at the Otago MBA.
A survey of our alumni who graduated from 2009 to 2013 painted an excellent picture. It showed that most of them found jobs within 3 months after graduation. With the versatility of the Otago MBA training, they established their careers in a wide range of industrial sectors and job functions all over the world. Many take home six figure salaries a year after graduation. Based on their salary figures and the low cost of undertaking the Otago MBA, most breakeven on their MBA investment within a year! More importantly they reported positive impacts on both their lives and careers.
Working in New Zealand after graduation: International students may be interested to know that if you wish to stay and work in New Zealand after completing your Otago MBA academic adventure, you may be eligible for a work visa under Immigration New Zealand Study to Work category.
