"I met a lot of people through the Passport to Business programme, both students and employers, and started a great mentoring relationship through the Women’s Mentoring Programme. We also had various guest lecturers coming in, which provided unique opportunities to learn from professionals."

I really benefited from the access to various networks that the Business School
provided.

“I reached out to the CEO of the New Zealand Superannuation Fund when I was in my first year, as he was an alum of my high school. I met with their HR team, again through the Passport to Business Programme, and maintained a professional relationship with them. I was approached to do some administrative work, which I did for a year, and met the Economics team members over this time. Ultimately this led to an offer to work as an Economics intern.”

Kate will be taking a position as a graduate analyst at the Treasury in 2020.
