The Otago Online MBA was off to a fantastic start. Since we launched our Online MBA in May 2015, applications has been streaming in fast from high-achievers who want to hone their business skills and advance their careers. Many of our applicants applied to our Online MBA because of the innovative and effective delivery approach we have taken. After the successful start of two cohorts, we are now inviting applications for our third intake in April 2016.
At the end of every paper, we run a student survey. Here are some of the anonymous students’ comments:
The Otago Online MBA Approach - interactive, live, collaborative
Lectures are delivered live over the Internet through our e-learning system twice a week in the evenings. Students participate in interactive discussions with classmates through breakout sessions. Group assignments are discussed in virtual syndicate rooms provided by the Otago MBA.
We have successfully retained the same rigorous curriculum of our on-campus MBA, the interactive style, and the practical applications through real life case studies and business projects.Our lecturers teach both on-campus and online where their schedules allow. Students participate in similar assignments and examinations as the on-campus programme.
When our online students were asked what they enjoyed most, here is how some responded:
We are very proud. The students also responded with some really good suggestions which we can develop, and they shared experiences that the people involved in the next papers can learn from.
