MBA in New Zealand - Eligibility

Bachelor Degree:

Most New Zealand universities accept the three-year graduation system for entry into the MBA programme. So, if you have a three-year bachelor degree like Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Commerce (BCom) or Bachelor of Science (BSc), this is acceptable as it is considered equivalent to a New Zealand Bachelor (Ordinary) Degree.

However, some universities may require an Honours degree. This is usually equivalent to B.Com. (H), B.Sc. (H) or a four year degree course like B.E.

For most good Universities, a good first degree from a leading university in India or its equivalent is essential.

Work Experience:

Most New Zealand business schools require a minimum of three to four years of work experience for admission to the MBA program. This is essential.

There are almost no good options for students, looking for an MBA program in New Zealand that does not require work experience.


GMAT is accepted and recommended by some New Zealand universities for admission to the MBA program. Check the table below for more details:


You need to take either the TOEFL or IELTS for admission to an MBA program in New Zealand. This is required for almost all business schools. This mandatory for most schools even if you have studied in English medium throughout.
