Start your Academic Adventure with the Otago MBA

Online Elective Courses

Elective courses offered by the online GlobalNxt Graduate School are available to both online and on-campus Otago MBA students during Phase 2 of the programme. Otago MBA has a Memorandum of Understanding with GlobalNxt, a world-class postgraduate business school offering online programmes.

The main purpose of the agreement is to allow the Otago MBA to expand on its strategic goals of choice and flexibility for MBA students. This extends the range of electives, many of which can be undertaken anywhere in the world. You may select electives not offered by the Otago Business School, subject to approval by the Otago MBA Office.

For some students this can mean returning to the work force while still completing Phase 2 of the Otago MBA programme. Similiarly for international students, you can return to your home country to complete Phase 2.

Online electives available are:

  • Project Management Methods
  • Performance Measurement and Control Systems
  • Enterprise Knowledge Management
  • Management of Services
  • E-Business
  • Information Technology Systems for Business
  • Supply Chain Management
  • IT Outsourcing and Vendor Management
  • Information Systems Strategy
  • IS Project Management
  • Business Process Management and Outsourcing
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Entrepreneurship

For full-time and part-time MBA students, the combination of on-campus teaching in Phase 1 and subsequently the choice of online learning gives you the best of both worlds.  You benefit from the direct students to lecturers, and students to students interaction during the early stage of the MBA education, followed by the flexibility of completing the programme anywhere in the world.

For students on the Otago Online MBA, Phase 1 core subjects are delivered live directly by Otago MBA.
