University of Otago, Business School

With an international reputation for quality teaching, the Otago Business School is acknowledged as a centre of excellence in business and economics. From undergraduate to PhD, we offer a range of academic programmes and executive-level education. Our career-focused programmes equip our graduates with skills, experience, and qualifications which are highly regarded both in New Zealand and internationally. For the second year in a row, our respected Online MBA programme ranked third in the world in CEO Magazine’s Global Online MBA Rankings this year. While our primary focus is helping students achieve academic excellence, we also encourage our students to embrace the full Otago experience and take advantage of the many opportunities and extra-curricular activities on offer outside the classroom. Today, business operates more than ever in a global marketplace. At Otago, this is reflected in the international make-up of our staff and students, global study opportunities such as our DBA offered in both Dunedin and Shanghai, and by our prestigious international accreditations and memberships.
