Finalist & Winner
Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS)
This large-scale tertiary institution was the pioneer of privately provided degrees for the international market and is still by far the market leader.
It provides MBA courses of five intakes a year, many of who have done preliminary courses in AIS-affiliates in Delhi and Kolkata.
We noted that important elements in its continuing success are the student services and job and internship outplacements.
Many of the students come from SME-owning families in India, and the AIS MBA provides a wide range of business skills to take back home.
