Advance your business or career

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a part-time programme designed for those actively working in professional business roles, and includes a mix of broad study across a comprehensive suite of business disciplines that will augment your existing knowledge and experience and help you develop the specialist skills employers and businesses need. This learning is further enhanced by a practical real-world research project, which you can apply directly to your workplace.

MBAs are highly sought after in the private sector, government, and in the not-for-profit sector. For an entrepreneur or small business owner, an MBA boosts and balances your business skills, builds your network, and shows you exactly how technology and innovative practices can help you succeed.


Life-friendly study

The Southern Cross University MBA taught at the Manukau Institute of Technology is designed to meet the demands of busy, mobile people – people who travel frequently, work abroad, or juggle multiple work, life and family commitments. There are multiple start dates throughout the year, and you can adjust your workload to suit your schedule.

The programme is primarily delivered using interactive and easy to use online learning tools that enable you to both work at your own pace and collaborate with and be supported by your peers and lecturers. This multi-modal approach delivers content as video, audio, hands-on, practical exercises, and other media to suit all kinds of learners. We also provide optional regular weekend workshops giving you the opportunity to meet face-to-face with peers and facilitators to discuss and debate ideas and course work.


Fast-track your MBA

Of the 16 total learning units, this programme includes four foundation units that are designed to give you a solid grounding in the basic principles of business and management.

However, if you have a relevant bachelor’s degree or experience, you could receive these four units as advanced standing towards the MBA, reducing the total number of units you need to complete to just 12. This can save time and money, allowing you to graduate faster.


International qualification

Get the best of both worlds, with this locally supported master’s degree that brings the added benefits of an Australian qualification. This international degree potentially opens more doors and provides a wider array of employment and further education opportunities both here in New Zealand and overseas.
