Why choose MIT?

New ‘quarters’ optimise your study time and support your success

How does twice as much time to focus on half the amount of papers and no exams sound?

In 2017, a new optimised teaching format called ‘quarters’ was introduced. This means that if you are a full-time business student (studying Level 5 or 7), you will study two courses per quarter instead of four courses per semester. If you are part-time studying two papers, you will do one per quarter. If you are studying one or three courses, you will have a choice on how you spread your enrolment throughout the year.

In short, you will double the class time per week for half the courses in any one quarter. There is no change in the overall learning hours or credits for each course. If you’re a part-time student this will also give you more flexibility and help you finish your qualification faster than before.

Extensive international research and our own experience confirms that this format leads to more students passing with better grades. This is because more students make it to the end of the course, less subjects need to be concentrated on at any one time and there are fewer assessments to complete at any one time. Even better, there will no longer be any exams. Some courses may still have smaller tests along the way, but none will have the traditional long final exam. Other assessments and industry projects will be tailored to suit this new optimised system as well. It doesn’t affect student loans or allowances in any way and allows you to start at any one of five times a year if you also do our summer school.

At MIT, our focus is to help you develop the skills and knowledge you need either to get a job or advance your career.

When you study Business at MIT, you're a name, not a number. With many of our classes being small, it means our passionate staff at the School of Business can work closely with you to support your learning, and our strong industry relationships mean that you'll get practical, real-world experience built into your study. Our aim is to get you into a job that puts you on the path to achieving your goals.

We teach all of our programmes at MIT Manukau, located right in the heart of Manukau and easily accessible by train, bus, car or bike.

Whatever your education or work history, you can enter at a level that suits your specific needs. You will find certificates, diplomas, degrees and post-graduate options, with both part-time and full-time study that can fit around your work or family commitments. Explore our study areas to find the programme that will help you land your dream job.
