Māori and Pacific business students

Of the 6,000 equivalent full-time students at the Business School, 13.5% of these identify as Māori or Pacific. These students offer a unique and diverse set of skills, knowledge and experiences to potential employers.

About our Māori and Pacific students

Each Māori and Pacific student has a different journey, coming to the University with a plan not only for their own future but also for their families and communities. Every student brings a unique cultural heritage that has shaped their world views. They share this knowledge with fellow students and staff, and also apply it to the theories and frameworks taught at the Business School.

Connect with Māori and Pacific students

During their time at the Business School, Māori and Pacific students engage in personal and professional development to prepare themselves for a range of employment opportunities.  

In addition to their studies, Māori and Pacific students participate in a variety of networking sessions and events that enable them to build
relationships with business organisations. These include Māori and Pacific employers, Business School alumni, and partners from many corporate firms in Auckland.

Networking and personal development opportunities include the Māori and Pacific Case Competition, corporate networking dinners, social quiz nights, employer presentations and office tours, mentoring programmes, leadership/talanoa discussions and the Bizfit Health and Wellbeing programme.
