For Online MBA students, Phase one can be completed in two-and-a-half years and consists of 12 papers each valued at 15 points. Phase two is 60 points and include a professional consulting engagement.

Assuming it takes three years to complete the MBA, here are the likely approximate fees scenarios:

2018 (actual)      NZD 2,143.25
