MBA programme details
Programme Code: AK3717
AUT's MBA is designed to offer you maximum flexibility. This allows you to continue working full time while completing your MBA part time.
You can choose the number of papers taken in any given term to fit around work demands, travel, and personal commitments provided you complete the qualification (180 points) within the required time period of four years.
Full time students usually complete the MBA within 18mths, however you can fast track and complete the qualification in one year.
Part time, the MBA usually takes between two to four years.
You may commence the MBA at any one of the six terms as listed in the current 2015 schedule below.
